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, the average temperature of Earth’s …

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 the Earth considered as a …

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 al. communicate our arguments incorrectly, …

Rescue from the Climate Saviors

Is the “Global Climate” really in Danger? By Klaus Ermecke Politicians want to save the world and spend the money of their countrymen. We ask: Is the “global climate” in any real danger? Introduction If one believes politicians and the media, the world is in danger: the earth is heating up – catastrophe will result – and civilization is the …

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), the Arctic warming extends from …

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: at the top boundary, the …

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 100 ppm increase in atmospheric …

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 in temperature and the rise …

A comparison of bioclimatic conditions on Franz Josef Land (the Arctic) between the turn of the nineteenth to twentieth century and present day

Andrzej Araźny, Przemysław Wyszyński, Rajmund Przybylak First Online: 10 January 2019 Abstract The paper presents the variability of meteorological conditions: air temperature, wind speed and relative air humidity; and biometeorological indices: wind chill temperature, predicted clothing insulation and accepted level of physical activity on Franz Josef Land (in Teplitz Bay and Calm Bay) in the years 1899–1931. It employs meteorological …
