The fallacy of the Greenhouse Effect 2
Planetary Vision

by Paul Clark


1. It is a one way valve for EMR.


A one way valve for heat requires work. A passive blanket such as the atmosphere does not have its own work.

It depends on the relative temperature and the atmosphere happens to be colder than the ground. Heat only flows from hot to cold despite the presence of back radiation.

The greenhouse theory is that light from the Sun falls to the ground warming it up. The Earth then emits at a lower temperature than the Sun at lower frequencies that are absorbed by greenhouse gases. You then get more warmth than you otherwise would because this adds to the heat content of the Earth.

It is our attitude toward free thought and free expression that will determine our fate. There must be no limit on the range of temperate discussion, no limits on thought. No subject must be taboo. No censor must preside at our assemblies.

–William O. Douglas, U.S. Supreme Court Justice, 1952
