Another Experiment Proving CO2 is Innocent of Climate Change
Written by John O'Sullivan
Independent British climate researcher, Geraint Hughes, author of ‘Black Dragon: Breaking the Frizzle Frazzle of THE BIG LIE of Climate,’ has developed yet another experiment to prove CO2 is innocent of climate change.
For those who haven’t yet seen Geraint’s impressive initial experiment, which successfully demonstrated that CO2 does not induce back radiant heating, take a few minutes to view two Youtube videos here and here.
Above, two photographs demonstrating the effects of an exposed light filament where exposed to a vacuum( left) and in a pure CO2 environment (right). As can be seen, the filament exposed only to CO2 is dimmer and cooler.
Speaking to Principia Scientific International, Geraint Hughes explained some of the feedback he has gotten since publicizing his results.
He reveals that some scientists, including professors, have made asinine comments, such as “The filament isn’t emitting IR, that’s why you can put your hand on the bulb in your video,” also, “the base is shiny this is distorting what’s happening.”
Among the worst responses was that the tungsten filament wasn’t emitting infrared radiation!
“He must be the only person on the planet who thinks that, but he has PhD so he must be ‘right’. People really are willing to come out with any old clap trap to try and silence the truth.”
The intelligent comments will be addressed in a follow up with modifications to the experiment. These included:
Height of the Chamber
A great number of comments came back saying that the chamber wasn’t tall enough for the back irradiance of CO2 to be induced and that the full height of the atmosphere cannot be represented with these chambers. Such comments are superficial and biased, insofar as the ‘standard experiment’ that ‘proves’ CO2 ‘traps’ heat is merely conducted in small, glass jars. In such a confined experiment (for or against the proposition) it cannot be claimed the results are truly representational of a mechanism occurring in the whole atmosphere.
But this is the point, the entire premise of CO2-driven radiative climate forcing is an unrepresentational demonstration in a lab environment. Thus, the entire narrative of the greenhouse gas effect relies on a claim that applies only to an artificially closed system, not the open-to-space reality of earth’s atmosphere.
Sticking strictly to the parameters of the closed system, laboratory environment, we see that back radiance from the CO2 gas isn’t causing a rise in temperature of the filament because such a thing doesn’t happen, not because of the height of the tower is insufficient.
Hughes told PSI:
“So in an attempt to address this, I will construct a tower which is twice as high as the current chambers, which are 200mm high. My new tower will be 400mm high.”
As any rational skeptic would expect, the result is unsurprising.
“The convective currents will increase, because there is now more space for gas to rise and move and so therefore, the rate of heat loss from the filament will rise, causing lower temperatures.”
This is the same effect of increasing the height of a greenhouse. The taller we make a greenhouse, the cooler it will be inside, as the restriction to convective cooling lessons as air is able to rise higher before coming back down again.
Hughes reports that his endeavors to substantiate his original findings are ongoing:
“Once in possession of a higher chamber I will, of course, record and publish the results and likely as not, the climate cultists will be disappointed. I predict, the taller I make this chamber, the cooler it will be. “
Flippantly, Hughes argues that a 20km high chamber will never be able to reverse what is happening.
Length of Test
Geraint Hughes reports that since posting his initial findings online he has been bombarded from both alarmists and lukewarmists that the time length of the test was too short.
The reasoning seems to be that because the CO2 being used in the experiment comes from a bottle, it is thus cooler than air temperature and so Hughes needs to wait for it to “Warm up.”
“Apparently, if I left the light on all day with the CO2 inside, I will at some point witness the sudden reversal in cooling to warming as back radiance “takes time” to get going before the tipping point suddenly gets reached and “flips” it to warming, ” comes a sarcastic Hughes reply.
For those firmly wedded to their alarmist position, Hughes holds little hope that any modification in his experiment will satisfy their unwillingness to alter their view.
Hughes has even had his filament experiment running all day and no change is detected:
“I can leave it on all day and it NEVER changes. Cynics are kidding themselves if they think this is the “key trick” to this experiment. There is no trick, this is real science, this is real engineering. Stop believing in stupid things, you need to understand that the BBC is full of rubbish.”
Hughes has run his tests for months and the magic “Tipping point” never gets reached, it never warms, it never gets brighter the light filament exposed to a CO2 only atmosphere stays dim (cool).
Pertinently, Hughes suggests that his critics take note that radiation moves at the speed of light – hundreds of thousands of miles per second. Radiation effects are instant. Radiation isn’t something that takes all day to get going, its effects are felt straight away, especially in such a small container. Just imagine on a sunny day walking under a umbrella then back out again, you notice the difference on your skin, straight away. There is no lag.
It was even suggested by an unmoved critic that Hughes should set his experiment as a live feed for at least 24 hours on Youtube. It would possibly count as the most boring video of all time but such is the extent some will go for the cause of empirical science.
“I get this one a lot. Apparently I am being unfair on CO2 by showing that its back irradiant powers don’t exist and that Climate Fraudster are lying. Showing things how they are just isn’t allowed. I need to show other gases too. Ok that’s easy so that is what I will do.”
IA new set of tests will be performed adding the gases, Argon, Nitrogen, Helium and simply with each one see what happens. He will also add thermometers to read temperatures of gases and then repeat the CO2 test with the thermometers also.
Some bright sparks have suggested me that if Hughes adds Argon, the filament will cool and this is the same as adding CO2 and therefore doesn’t show that CO2 doesn’t have back radiant powers. In other words, some people are sure CO2 is the same as Argon, Argon has no IR absorption but CO2 does, so shouldn’t CO2 be different?
Hughes believes others should follow his lead and perform this obvious experiment themselves.
He expects they will learn that adding CO2 cools the filament, adding Argon cools the filament, adding any gas cools the filament.
As a confirmed skeptic of the CO2-radiative greenhouse gas theory Hughes wishes others to realize that CO2 does not have any special back radiant heat inducing powers at all.
“Argon and CO2 have similar properties and so therefore will result in similar temperatures. Argon has no IR powers, yet CO2 does and both will be approximately similar. This will show that CO2 back irradiance as a theory of heat and weather control is obsolete.
I will show which gas results in the warmest temperatures and I will post videos of each, tabulate the data, produce graphs and do several repeat tests of each showing room temperature also.
I am going to swap the tungsten filaments for 1mm thick, instead of normal hairline filaments, because all these different tests will burn out loads of bulbs. I haven’t done that before so it may take me a while to get it all to work. Hopefully I will have all these done within 3 months or so.”
What will the point of all these be, the point is that CO2 does not induce back radiant heating and all the “pathological reasoning” which people put forth as to why back radiant heating didn’t occur is false.
It didn’t occur because the chamber “was too small” it didn’t occur because “It wasn’t given enough time” and it didn’t occur “because you didn’t compare it with other gases”.
The reason it didn’t occur, is because gases just can’t do that. They aren’t real reasons as to why back heating didn’t occur.
As he also shows in his new book, we are being constantly bombarded by the fake news media and twisted education system. “It’s time for the fraud to stop and all those fraudsters to be bought to task.”
As for the book, Black Dragon: Breaking the Frizzle Frazzle of THE BIG LIE of Climate, it includes:
A full and comprehensive summary of the main reasons as to why the human-caused Global Warming theory is false.
Global warming science is taught falsely, right from the start. This false teaching is to convince people to believe in science which isn’t true, so that they willingly make expensive and unnecessary life changes, submit themselves to restrictions on their energy usage and happy to pay extra taxes. Extra taxes to people whom offer nothing in return for the extra expense but hardship.
Black Dragon shines a light upon the major aspects of these falsehoods and illuminates the truth in a manner which can be understood, plainly and simply.
The “twaddle talk” about how greenhouses work by radiation or the lies that atmospheres back-warm planets and the ever ready falsehood that Venus suffers a “Runaway Greenhouse Effect” are all absurd. This book explains why. The deceptive experiments of the left are laid bare and true science is taught. Black Dragon breaks the code of deceit and teaches how greenhouses really work and how to use real thermal radiation equations to quickly approximate temperatures of simple objects in space.
