1. “Science is generated by and devoted to free inquiry: the idea that any hypothesis, no matter how strange, deserved to be considered on its merits. The suppression of uncomfortable ideas may be common in religion and politics, but it is not the path to knowledge; it has no place in the endeavor of science.”
    Carl Sagan, Cosmos (1980), pg 91
    The Radiative Greenhouse Effect Theory
    Premise 1:
    The earth is 33 C warmer with an atmosphere than without. (288 K – 255 K = 33 C)
    So, just how does that work?
    Premise 2:
    There is an up/down/”back” CO2/GHG LWIR energy loop between the surface and the atmosphere that “traps” and recirculates energy through molecular level QED processes warming both the atmosphere and the surface.
    And what powers that energy loop?
    Premise 3:
    The surface radiates as a 288 K ideal black body with an emission of 390 W/m^2. (K-T 289 K & 396 W/m^2)
    Premises 1, 2 & 3 are demonstrably false.
    No 33 C warmer + No up/down/”back” GHG LWIR energy loop + No ideal BB surface radiation = Mankind’s carbon dioxide plays ZERO role in the behavior of the climate.

    1. Nick,

      Excellent post! I have gone to your links and you know your stuff. I did notice that some of the comments that some people made disappeared? Did you do that? If so, I know you had good reason. The AGW/GHE crowd doesn’t accept contrary evidence very well. They should read the quote you gave from Carl Sagan and try to absorb that bit of wisdom. Thank you for your input in the fight against the AGW charade.
