Water Vapor Rules the Greenhouse System

Monte Hieb at Geocraft.com Last revised: January 10, 2003 Just how much of the “Greenhouse Effect” is caused by human activity? It is about 0.28%, if water vapor is taken into account– about 5.53%, if not. This point is so crucial to the debate over global warming that how water vapor is or isn’tfactored into an analysis of Earth’s greenhouse gases makes the difference between describing a significant human contribution to the greenhouse effect, or a negligible one.

Climate Science’s Myth-Buster

It’s time to be scientific about global warming, says climatologist Judith Curry. City Journal Guy Sorman | Winter 2019 We’ve all come across the images of polar bears drifting on ice floes: emblematic victims of the global warming that’s melting the polar ice caps, symbols of the threat to the earth posed by our ceaseless energy production—above all, the carbon dioxide that factories and automobiles emit. We hear louder and louder demands to impose limits, to change our wasteful ways, so as to save not only the bears but also the planet and ourselves.

Anthropogenic Global Warming (AGW); A Tangled Web Strangling Its Creators and Proponents

WUWT March 3, 2019 Guest opinion: Dr. Tim Ball Two recent events triggered the idea for this article. On the surface, they appear unconnected, but that is an indirect result of the original goal and methods of global warming science. We learned from Australian Dr, Jennifer Marohasy of another manipulation of the temperature record in an article titled “Data mangling: BoM’s Changes to Darwin’s Climate History are Not Logical.” The second involved the claim of final, conclusive evidence of Anthropogenic Global Warming ((AGW). The original article appeared in the journal Nature Climate Change. Because it is in this journal raises …

On the Present Halting of Global Warming

Syun-Ichi Akasofu International Arctic Research Center, University of Alaska Fairbanks, USA; E-Mail: sakasofu@iarc.uaf.edu; Tel.: 1-907-474-6012; Fax: 1-907-474-5662 Received: 28 January 2012; in revised form: 15 April 2013/ Accepted: 15 April 2013/ Published: 3 May 2013 Abstract: The rise in global average temperature over the last century has halted since roughly the year 2000, despite the fact that the release of CO2 into the atmosphere is still increasing. It is suggested here that this interruption has been caused by the suspension of the near linear (+ 0.5° C/100 years or 0.05° C/10 years) temperature increase over the last two centuries, due …

The Green New Deal: Scope, Scale, and Implications

Douglas Holtz-Eakin, Dan Bosch, Ben Gitis, Dan Goldbeck, Philip Rossetti EXECUTIVE SUMMARY The Green New Deal (GND) is a sweeping policy plan setting out ambitious objectives for energy and economic policy. The breadth of its proposals makes it daunting to assess the GND using the standard tools of policy analysis. Nevertheless, this short paper is an initial foray. We have three broad conclusions: The GND’s proposed goals, “mobilization,” and specific policy projects encompass social and institutional changes far exceeding the narrow policy goals, but these changes are impossible to quantify at this point; Many of the policies proposed in the …

CO2 is not causing (statistically relevant) global warming

Bud Bromley January 15, 2019 CO2, water, and CH4 (methane) and some other minor gases are so-called “greenhouse gases” because they absorb infrared energy.  However, be careful to avoid the common misunderstanding that the earth and its atmosphere behave like a garden greenhouse; that is not true.  Greenhouses are closed systems except to incoming energy.  Earth is an open system, open to receive energy, as well receive gases and other matter from space and also open to transmit energy, gases and matter back into space.  A greenhouse is a poor analogy for earth’s climate.

The climate change bubble

Bud Bromley July 5, 2016 Dr. Judith Curry takes down the AAAS in the post at this link to her website. The American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) attempts a power play on climate change but instead shoots itself in the foot. This is an example of the Iron Law of Bureaucracy. https://judithcurry.com/2016/07/04/climate-power-play-by-the-aaas-et-al/ The management of ACS is one of the signers of the AAAS propaganda letter. I was a member of the American Chemical Society (ACS) for many years. I was heavily involved with an ACS subgroup in gas chromatography in the 1970’s and early 1980’s. There …

The Club of Rome and beyond: How the socialist religion of environmentalism was born

The Rebel Tim Ball | February 20, 2016 The entire world needed the new paradigm of environmentalism. The problem is that a few grabbed it for a political agenda. They used it as a vehicle to take the moral high ground, to claim only they cared about the environment. They argue that everyone else was guilty of environmental destruction because of their avarice and wasteful ways. Environmentalism as a political agenda is pushed by extremely wealthy and powerful left wing people who made their money exploiting the environment. The psychology of that is beyond the realm of this discussion, but …
