American Thinker Bombs Over CO2 Junk Science Claims
Written by John O'Sullivan
I hate to criticize American Thinker. They are part of the solution, not the problem, in combating the 30-year globalist plan to browbeat us minions into surrendering to de-industrialization and mass population control. But here goes….
I was irked to read the reason why American Thinker’s JR Dunn would reject the latest excellent submission The Climate Crap from an author, Anthony Bright-Paul, they have published several times before on a subject that is critical to exposing the Big Lie about carbon dioxide being the root cause of so-called man-made global warming.
Bright-Paul and AT’s Dunn have reached an impasse and it is symptomatic of the core problem independent applied scientists and engineers – we ‘Slayers’ at Principia Scientific International – have been bemoaning for the last decade. We cover the issue in our new book. The Sky Dragon Slayers Victory Lap.
I would class the good folk at American Thinker to be a cut above the average. But I learn than Mr Dunn has relied on nothing more than an instant online search to glean all the ‘science’ he needs as a media gatekeeper to smack down Bright-Paul.
This anecdote shows just how far we have sunk in an age when anyone with the most basic keyboard skills can become an instant ‘expert’. Any one at all – from an indolent spotty teen to an Alzheimer’s addled pensioner can, in their world-wide web omniscience, knock into a cocked hat a century’s worth of robust applied science.
All on the reassuring say so of Mr Google. Self-satisfied and god-like these gatekeepers to truth will terminate discussion. Brainwashed by the alphabet BS. We are in dark times, indeed.
Case in point:
Bright-Paul, a long-time skeptic who insists that carbon dioxide is NOT our climate’s control knob correctly wrote that this trace gas has been used in industry for over a century as a supreme coolant gas for industrial refrigeration.
Not only does CO2 emit heat in 3 nanoseconds (literally, the blink of an eye), it is actually crucial plant food (not a pollutant) and far better for the environment than those nasty CFC’s and HFC’s that cool modern refrigerators and which allegedly caused the ‘ozone hole’ – remember that crock of hoo-ha which was a ‘dry run’ for global warming?
The clue that American Thinker aren’t thinking as much as they claim was when Dunn’s pompous email reply to Bright-Paul began:
“Looking at the first link on Google we find….” – J.R. Dunn, American Thinker
(head in hands now)
Anyone who just relies on Google – a well-known propaganda organ for globalists – for information about this much-maligned trace atmospheric gas (CO2) is clearly someone who lacks intellectual rigor. Mr American Non-Thinker (who should have known better) then regaled Bright-Paul with his new-found snippet of pseudo-science nonsense:
“In the early days of refrigeration the two refrigerants in common use were ammonia and carbon dioxide. Both were problematic – ammonia is toxic and carbon dioxide requires extremely high pressures (from around 30 to 200 atmospheres!)
And that is that. It was used in a limited fashion for a brief period until better gasses came along. It’s not in use as a refrigerant at this time, for very good reasons: 30 to 300 atmospheres translates as 441 to 2,940 pounds per square inch, which means that any refrigerator using CO2 would qualify a high-explosive device.” – J.R. Dunn, American Thinker
Did you get that?
A “high-explosive device” no less. God forbid any sane manufacturer would put bombs in people’s cars!
At this point all you good people who know a thing or two about mechanics will know what’s coming next.
Let’s take your average commercial passenger aircraft or family car. The working parts of the engines of these complex machines must withstand 14,000 pounds plus of pressure per square inch. That is 31.7 times higher than the base pressure cited by Dunn for a “high explosive device.” What an idiot!
Warning: above image depicts the large ‘bomb’ fitted to standard motor cars – beware!
So, Mr American Non-Thinker, are we all raving loony suicide bombers every time we take to the highways or the skies?
And as for the wisdom of not using CO2 in this day and age to keep the interior of our cars cool, let’s see what the brightest and best car designers in the world have to say on the subject.
In that crazy country of fools Germans are very proud of the car maker Mercedes. This world-leading car maker has even made the bold move to start switching over to installing CO2 air conditioners in their luxury cars since 2015.
So, not only are these reckless Germans continuing to install highly-dangerous compression engines to their cars they are now installing a very deadly second explosive device in the air con! Who’d have thunk it, Mr Dunn??
American Thinker? Not so sure!
This is why letting Arts’ majors make decisions about which claims made in science articles are valid or not has left so many qualified scientists tearing their hair out. The fact we have endured 30 years of downright mass misinformation in the media about climate change is because our society simply does not educate enough people to a high enough level in the hard sciences.
Our world is run by opinionated [and corrupt] idiots.
