RE: the facts about global warming
I think I meant CO2 (heat radiation) cooling effect. Apologies for my poor wording.
Therefore after the initial saturation of lower level atmos. CO2,
higher up CO2 produces more of the same wavelength radiation as it cools the atmos. it is contained in.
I mean therefore that CO2 throughout the depth of the atmos. releases radiation at it's wavelegth as it cools the N2 and O2,
not that it is neccesarily absorbed / remitted radiation of this wavelength.
Does this make sense. ?
I have followed your link - thanks for that.
Q - Does CO2 absorbtion plots, also equal CO2 emission plots for IR. ?
I am not too keen on,
"So, what is the actual increase? Interestingly enough, that is easy to estimate"
Effectively he takes all the temp (staring point and end point increase only) over a time period,
and divides it by the supposed CO2 (again start and finish points increase only) global level rise..
i) The temp rise is solely due to CO2...
ii) The global CO2 and temp figures are accurate.......
iii) Does not take account of the variations in temp (and CO2) over the time period.....
Even by this "reasoning" shouldn't they of used the maximum and minimum values recorded for the two variables ?
Or maybe the max. min. and average for the starting and ending points, to produce a "range" of possible increase ?
The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed
(and hence clamorous to be led to safety)
by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.
H. L. Mencken.
The hobgoblins have to be imaginary so that
"they" can offer their solutions, not THE solutions.
