This is a short series about basic (all-inclusive) physics that pertains to climate change.
My purpose is not to engage in detail about wind, rain, snow, storms, historical climatology,
Milankovitch cycles, or any of the common topics discussed about climate.
My purpose is to discuss some simple physics in ten chapters.
- Heat balance
- Greenhouse effect
- IPCC’s inept physics
- Heat flow
- Equilibrium Climate Sensitivity (ECS)
- Energy constraints on climate
- IPCC climate predictions
- Heat in equals heat out
- Stephan-Boltzmann law
