Falsification Of The Atmospheric CO2 Greenhouse Effects Within The Frame Of Physics

By: Gerhard Gerlich Ralf D. Tscheuschner Abstract The atmospheric greenhouse effect, an idea that authors trace back to the traditional works of Fourier 1824, Tyndall 1861, and Arrhenius 1896, and which is still supported in global climatology, essentially describes a fictitious mechanism, in which a planetary atmosphere acts as a heat pump driven by an …

Proof of the Atmospheric Greenhouse Effect

Arthur P. Smith (Submitted on 29 Feb 2008) A recently advanced argument against the atmospheric greenhouse effect is refuted. A planet without an infrared absorbing atmosphere is mathematically constrained to have an average temperature less than or equal to the effective radiating temperature. Observed parameters for Earth prove that without infrared absorption by the atmosphere, …

Comments on the Proof of the atmospheric greenhouse effect

Gerhard Kramm, Ralph Dlugi, and Michael Zelger University of Alaska Fairbanks, Geophysical Institute 903 Koyukuk Drive, P.O. Box 757320, Fairbanks, AK 99775-7320, USA Arbeitsgruppe Atmosphärische Prozesse (AGAP), Gernotstraße, D-80804 Munich, Germany Abstract: In this paper it is shown that Smith (2008) used inappropriate and inconsistent formulations in averaging various quantities over the entire surface of …

Reply to “Comment on ‘Falsification Of The Atmospheric CO2 Greenhouse Effects Within The Frame Of Physics” by Joshua B. Halpern, et al

Gerhard Gerlich, Ralf D. Tscheuschner (Submitted on 2 Dec 2010) It is shown that the notorious claim by Halpern et al. recently repeated in their comment that the method, logic, and conclusions of our “Falsification Of The CO2 Greenhouse Effects Within The Frame Of Physics” would be in error has no foundation. Since Halpern et …

Solar cyclic variability can modulate winter Arctic climate

Sci Rep. 2018; 8: 4864. Published online 2018 Mar 20. doi: 10.1038/s41598-018-22854-0 PMCID: PMC5861038 PMID: 29559646 Indrani Roy Abstract This study investigates the role of the eleven-year solar cycle on the Arctic climate during 1979–2016. It reveals that during those years, when the winter solar sunspot number (SSN) falls below 1.35 standard deviations (or mean value), …

A DYNAMIC, COUPLED THERMAL RESERVOIR APPROACH TO ATMOSPHERIC ENERGY TRANSFER PART II: APPLICATIONS

R. Clark, Mar. 21.2013 | E&E Submission V4 Part II Final Draft Roy Clark, Ph.D. Ventura Photonics 1336 N. Moorpark Road #224 Thousand Oaks, CA 91360 USA ABSTRACT The coupled thermal reservoir approach described in Part I is demonstrated by analyzing flux and meteorological data covering a range of thermal reservoir conditions. These include mid …

The stable stationary value of the earth’s global average atmospheric Planck-weighted greenhouse-gas optical thickness

By Ferenc Miskolczi 3 Holston Lane, Hampton VA 23664, USA Article in Energy & Environment · August 2010 DOI: 10.1260/0958-305X.21.4.243 ABSTRACT By the line-by-line method, a computer program is used to analyze Earth atmospheric radiosonde data from hundreds of weather balloon observations. Interms of a quasi-all-sky protocol, fundamental infrared atmospheric radiative flux components are calculated: …

A Null Hypothesis For CO2

R. Clark Docket ID No. EPA-HQ-OAR-2009-0171 6/17/09 Roy Clark Thousand Oaks Summary The energy transfer processes that occur at the Earth’s surface are examined from first principles. The effect of small changes in the solar constant caused by variations in the sunspot cycles and small increases in downward long wave infrared flux due to a …

Global Warming: Correlation Between Atmospheric Carbon Dioxide Concentration and Temperature

Karl Glaser, Roche Colorado Corporation. Boulder, Colorado ABSTRACT The correlation between atmospheric carbon dioxide concentration and surface temperature was determined at various locations, using published data from the Goddard Institute of Space Studies and the Scripps Institute of Oceanography. Significant correlations were seen, with a lag of approximately 45 – 60 years between the rise …
