The stable stationary value of the Earth’s global average atmospheric infrared optical thickness

by Ferenc Miskolczi Presented by Miklos Zagoni EGU2011 Vienna Download PDF Conclusions According to the simple-minded or ‘classic’ view of the greenhouse effect the global average greenhouse temperature change may be estimated by the direct application of the Beer-Lambert law moderated by local or regional scale weather phenomena (R. Pierrehumbert, A. Lacis, R. Spencer, R. …

Does the Tropopause Limit Carbon Dioxide Heat Trapping?

by Richard J. Petschauer, June 10, 2011, Revised June 29, 2011 [This revision adds non-standard atmospheric lapse rates to the calculations.] Background Basic greenhouse theory shows that as the concentration of CO2 increases, a thinner atmosphere is required to allow the heat to radiate to outer space. This causes the typical emission altitude to increase …

Carbon warming too minor to be worth worrying about

by David Evans, PhD, Financial Post The debate about global warming has reached ridiculous proportions and is full of micro-thin half-truths and misunderstandings. I am a scientist who was on the carbon gravy train, understands the evidence, was once an alarmist, but am now a skeptic. Watching this issue unfold has been amusing but, lately, …

Oregon Eco-Group files Climate Change Lawsuit against Montana Citizens

by Dr. Ed Berry An Oregon-based nonprofit group “Our Children’s Trust” has filed a climate change lawsuit in the Montana Supreme Court and plans to file similar lawsuits in all 50 states. The Group claims human emissions of carbon dioxide threatens the Earth’s atmosphere and that continued emissions will cause damages to the next generation, …

Global warming: 10 little facts

by Bob Carter, Quadrant Online Control the language, and you control the outcome of any debate. Ten dishonest slogans about global warming, and ten little facts. Each of the following ten numbered statements reproduces verbatim, or almost verbatim, statements made recently by Australian government leaders, and repeated by their media and other supporters. The persons …

Maunder Minimum 1740—replay in 2020?

By Dennis Avery, Canada Free Press Churchville, VA—A reader recently pointed out a fascinating temperature comparison—between 1700 AD and today. He marked two sections of the world’s oldest temperature record—Central England Yearly Average Temperature 1660–2008:  The first section showed our famous recent temperature surge from 1976–1998. He also marked a similar strong temperature surge from …

The Elenin, 2012 and Global Warming Delusions

by Ed Berry Some people, especially environmentalists, love predicting doomsday disasters. Like those who predict our carbon dioxide will irreversibly overheat our planet, now there are those who predict the comet Elenin will cause great earthquakes and gigantic tides when it zips inside Earth’s orbit next September and October 2011. Don’t believe any of these …

Forest Service Morons use a Climate Change Scorecard

by Ed Berry Start with a myth that is right up there with witch burning. Start with a climate change fraud that has less justification in terms of known science than cutting out beating hearts did in the 1600’s to make your crops grow. Start with the most expensive public brainwashing experiment in the history …

Carbon Dioxide: An Innocent Bystander in Climate Change

by Bryce Johnson Abstract An atmospheric radiation transport code, SpectralCalc™ (1) has been used to predict carbon dioxide’s contribution to earth heating.  The code predicts that doubling atmospheric CO2 raises its temperature by only 0.22 degrees C.  This temperature rise is very much lower than “conventional” predictions which indicate at least a 1 C rise …

CO2 minor contributor to global warming

How much CO2 really contributes to global warming? Spectroscopic studies and modeling of the influence of H2O, CO2 and CH4 on our climate by Hermann Harde, Helmut-Schmidt-Universität Hamburg, Germany (harde@hsu-hh.de) Based on the actual HITRAN’ 2008 database [1] detailed spectroscopic studies on the absorbance of the greenhouse gases water, carbon dioxide and methane in the …

The Greenhouse Effect

by Vincent Gray, NZ Climate Truth Newsletter No 262 The greenhouse effect is caused by absorption of infra red radiation from the earth by trace gases in the earth’s atmosphere. A greenhouse confines only a small part of the atmosphere, so the trace gas absorption is negligible.

Improved Simple Climate Sensitivity Model

by Richard J. Petschauer (February 24, 2011) 1.  Summary of the Present Simple Model and Its Limitations The present simple climate model, used by most climate scientists to estimate climate sensitivity, is based on maintaining energy balance between the net solar incoming shortwave solar radiation and the outgoing longwave radiation from the planet. Increased CO2 …

CO2 Cannot Cause Global Warming

Ferenc Miskolczi’s Saturated Greenhouse Effect Theory by Miklos Zagoni, SPPI, December 18, 2009 The Earth’s atmosphere differs in essence from that of Venus and Mars. Our atmosphere is not totally cloud-covered, as is Venus: globally, about 40% of the sky is always clear. Also we have huge ocean surfaces that serve as a practically unlimited …
