2015 – The Dark Ages All Over Again?

Written by Hans Schreuder, PSI co-founder

Who could have foreseen that in this age of instant communications over the Internet we are heading into a new Age of Darkness, as endorsed by Papal Edictbank ki moon and pope
 
Climate alarmism now appears to be endorsed by the Church of Rome (picture right). 

The march of the ‘greener than thou’ brigade is showing itself to be one of the most powerful and destructive man-made forces the world has ever seen.

But what is the fuss all about?
 
The alleged additional emissions of carbon dioxide gas from human development are said to be causing dangerous climate disruptions.
 
It all started with that amazing gas, that we all breathe out at 40,000ppmv by the way, causing “global warming”, but when that kite stopped flying because the earth stopped “warming”, the ruse was renamed various times until the general public by now is under the impression that every storm and every other weather event has been caused by the human emission of that magical gas of life.
 
Just take a step back and observe the extent of the total amount of carbon dioxide in earth’s atmosphere and than come to understand that the human amount is only an alleged four percent of this. The “alleged” insertion is based on the proven fact that the oceans drive the atmospheric carbon dioxide level. Knowing that the oceans cover nearly 70% of the earth’s surface, it is the oceans that determine the level of moisture as well as carbon dioxide in the air – it has nothing at all to do with humans!
 Plus, oceans contain more than 50 times more carbon dioxide than is contained in earth’s entire atmosphere.

And a quick aside: there is no such thing as a “global temperature”, knowing as fact that such a conjured up parameter is based on just a few thousand weather stations spread across a tiny portion of the earth’s 29% land, with none at the Poles, none in the oceans and some stations being treated as giving the temperature of entire countries?! It is a truly meaningless parameter and the “amount of warming” has recently been expressed as being in the hundredths of one degree Celsius – you couldn’t make this up if you wanted to. Plus, the earth stations have been proven to have been tampered with so that cooling trends have been fabricated into warming trends.

The only accurate measurements of atmospheric temperatures are by satellite and they show no warming for almost 20 years now.

Where’s the evidence?

Keep in mind as well that there has never yet been any scientific empirical evidence of the influence of the total amount of carbon dioxide, let alone the tiny percentage of human production.

Over and above the fact that human output is tiny compared to powerful natural forces over which humans have no control either, there does not exist any evidence whatsoever that atmospheric carbon dioxide can cause any warming of the atmosphere or the earth’s surface itself – it is in fact a physical impossibility.

Just consider these words of wisdom by American scientist Alan Siddons, from 2008:

If ‘greenhouse gases’ absorb but do not emit, then they can’t be regarded as radiative heating agents for anything. On the other hand, if greenhouse gases do emit what they absorb, then they can’t be said to “trap” radiation.

Every planet with sufficient gravity to hold onto a substantial atmosphere shows a temperature gradient (adiabatic) like the earth’s, warmer as you approach the surface – and always far warmer than radiative physics allows (= P/4 ed.). Every planet. Despite evidence now available to us, however, trace gas heating theory has a firm grip on the minds of skeptic and believer alike.

Decades more will pass before this 19th century conjecture is abandoned. An image speaks louder than words, so herewith an image that ought to make you step back and think:

co2 schreuder

For a proper scientific reason as to why a cooler gas can not make an already warmer planet any warmer, Canadian scientist Joe Postma explains:

There are only two terms to consider: Thot^4 and Tcool^4. Q’ = HEAT FLOW = k*(Thot^4 – Tcool^4). Both the cold source and the hot source emit energy, but HEAT, Q’, only flows from hot to cold and heat is what is required to raise temperature. That’s it; nothing else to discuss. Cold doesn’t warm hot because it doesn’t have the power, even when it shines towards hot. Cold doesn’t have the higher frequencies that hot already has, hence can’t add higher frequencies to hot, hence can’t make hot hotter. The radiative heat flow equation is found in textbooks.

So that’s the beginning and the end of any possible argument over whether or not any atmospheric gas, be it carbon dioxide, water vapor or methane can warm planet Earth more than the Sun can do.

We all know what it feels like to have skin exposed to wind: it feels cool because moving air takes heat from the body. In earth’s open atmosphere, air including carbon dioxide removes heat from earth’s surface. The fact that carbon dioxide can absorb heat means that it is a better coolant. Gases in the open atmosphere cool earth and so cannot heat earth.

Remember, satellite measurements of the entire troposphere, that’s the lower atmosphere that contains most of earth’s air, show there is no warming of the atmosphere – no hotspot. That’s why people alarmed about climate neglect to tell us that carbon dioxide is a coolant and won’t use the only reliable measurement of atmospheric temperature, satellites.

Conclusion

There is only one function of all atmospheric gases: they COOL the surface, some more than others, but none can make it warmer. The atmosphere obtains its temperature from the earth’s surface, which in turn has received the energy from the sun.

The well-understood adiabatic process, which explains how gases behave in a gravitational field, such as our atmosphere, does not add energy to the surface. Such a process merely determines and explains the rate of heat-transport between the surface and the higher atmosphere, all the time carrying heat off the surface and transporting it to the upper layers of the atmosphere, where radiation by carbon dioxide and water vapor allows the atmosphere to shed its heat into the void that we call space.

Get the facts; make the right decisions.

    The Pope could have said, “The Pope is the spiritual leader of a billion + people and has never been an expert on scientific questions. So, even though I am being pressured to endorse the belief that carbon dioxide and water vapor are pollutants that are threatening to destroy the Ecosystem, let’s not forget that the Catholic Church championed the Ptolemaic model of the solar system for centuries and in its defense the Roman Inquisition declared Galileo to be a heretic and placed him under house arrest for life. Let’s also not forget that the Catholic Church put to death numerous mentally ill people during the Little Ice Age because the Church believed them to be witches who were responsible for the deadly changes in weather patterns. Since I, the current Pontiff, do not want to share responsibility for the holocaust that the UN’s global energy deprivation plan will no doubt cause, I Pope Francis refrain from making any scientific declarations concerning the affect of carbon dioxide and water vapor on the climate. After all, as the Supreme Pontiff of the Catholic Church it is my duty to focus my attention on the real problems that face humanity and bad weather is only a problem for those people who suffer under it without adequate, dependable and relatively inexpensive energy.”

    But alas he didn’t and therefore just confirmed what everyone already knows. [b]The Pope is not infallible[/b] and has decided to continue the long standing Catholic tradition of being on the wrong side of scientific truth.

    On Feb 17, 1600 Giordano Bruno was convicted of “heresy, pantheism and promoting heliocentric conspiracies” and slow roasted alive.

    “The death of Bruno was a ‘sad episode’ but the Inquisitors had a desire to serve freedom, promote the common good and did everything to save his life”

    ~ Cardinal Angelo Sadano, Deen of the College of Cardinals

    Robert Pirsig once said, “When one person suffers from a delusion it is called insanity; when many people suffer from a delusion it is called religion.”

    When applied to the delusion of dangerous man-made global warming, it proves that Pirsig was so so right!

    Good intention, Hans, I guess, but poor argumentation, sorry.

    You said “There is only one function of all atmospheric gases: they COOL the surface, some more than others, but none can make it warmer” and at the same contradicted that by quoting “Every planet with sufficient gravity to hold onto a substantial atmosphere shows a temperature gradient like the earth’s, warmer as you approach the surface – and always far warmer than radiative physics allows”. “Warmer than radiative physics allows” is pure nonsense, Hans, because it is equivalent to creating energy out of nothing, since the energy output from the “warmer” surface would be higher than the input, which is physically impossible.

    There is no “warmer” and every attempt to explain that “warmer” thing by whatever “effect” is automatically doomed for the reason I gave above.

      “Warmer than radiative physics allows”
      Greg, you seem not to understand what “radiative physics” stands for. Look at the K&T budget, that is based on “radiative physics”, whereby the solar input is routinely given as P/4, hence the need for a “greenhouse effect” to pump the P/4 radiation level up to were actual temperatures are. Reality check: solar input needs to be P/2 to give actual temperatures. As per my earlier request to you: stop your condemnatory one-liners and write your own article, so we can all marvel at the accuracy of your knowledge and superb manner to put such superior knowledge into words.

        Hans, any sane person would have all reasons to believe that “radiative physics” stands, you know, for radiative physics. Surprise. Hence the statement “Warmer than radiative physics allows” in the well known context is false. Not so in your article though.

        The problem is, right, that this nonsense is used to make the physically impossible “greenhouse effect” look plausible. Unfortunately, the quote in your article contributes to it.

        I welcome your sort of disclaimer in your reply to my comment, although it is still not understandable to 99,99% readers, in my humble opinion. Still I do not understand how you manage to turn from your blunder to me not writing “my own article”. Just consider my comments articles, to make it easier.

        Hans,
        What you stated makes perfect sense to any reasonable person. Greg demands mathematical precision from language, thus revealing himself to be little more than a dogmatic clown.

        What is the mechanism underlying non-Newtonian fluids?

    You cannot ignote the effect of pressure on temperature nor the expansion and compression ability of the atmosphere in response to gravitational and pressure fluctuations and waves.

    The true problem with global warming theory is the lack of understanding we have of basic basic physics. For example the celebrated “higgs bosun”found at an energy level beyween the two it was predicted to exiat at, our dithering approach to coming up with universal theory (string, sypersymmetry, wave particle, holographic), and CERN (Arguably the forefront of human knowledge of physics) is lookibg for a FIFTH Fundamental force.

    If we dont “know” how many fundamental forces there are, it seems maniacally ludicrously egotistical that some believe we can fathom the energy interactions of the planet.!!

      Alistair, agreed, but what should we do in the meantime, shut up? How do you propose scientific understanding progresses? With your outburst of superlatives, maybe you should join the queue of those who silently sit and wait for others do discover the interactions you refer to.

        Hans,
        The first thing to do is admit, [b]I do not know[/b]. [i]Mandatory else no learning.[/i]
        Second, admit 4PI steradians of different POV’s.
        Third, admit some new POVs can provide learning.
        Fourth, promote only POVs that can be repeatedly be demonstrated, promote only those to higher learning.
        All other POVs can be harvested into children’s stories, providing a never ending stream of new POVs! 🙂
