How do you get a phony consensus on junk science like AGW? Bribe the Marxist Sympathisizing Universities


A Senate report found that 70 percent of colleges that took money from a Chinese propaganda program broke the law by not disclosing it.
Almost all of the colleges contracted to shape U.S. textbooks on the Middle East received massive funding from countries in the region.
The Department of Education is going after U.S universities over supposed ties to foreign governments, after some allegedly took huge quantities of foreign cash and hid it from regulators.

At the top of the list are Georgetown University and Texas A&M, which have taken hundreds of millions of dollars from the government of Qatar, a middle eastern nation with suspected links to international terrorism. (Source)

Don’t forget, Qatar funded the Anti-Fracking Movie Promised Land.

Finally Some True Social Justice; Oberlin College SJW Damages $33 Million

Meredith Raimondo, Vice President and Dean of Students just cost the University $22 Million, and every university out there is staffed full of Meredith Raimondos.

What makes this lawsuit so impressive is that is was decided in N East Ohio right next to Cleveland. Outside San Francisco, NYC and South Chicago it is hard to find a more intolerant group of progressives in America.

IMHO, this is the quickest way to end this SJW terrorizing America. Simply bankrupt them for their intolerance.

Gibson attorneys underscored that punitive damages are meant to discourage not only Oberlin, but any other institution from committing similar acts.

Jury hits Oberlin College with a total $44.2 million in damages (Source)

In an email to the Oberlin community on Friday, Carmen Twillie Ambar, the college president, said that the case was far from over, and that “none of this will sway us from our core values.”

Good to know that Oberlin’s core values now apparently include total disregard for the truth (though that should not be a big surprise, since the core teaching of Oberlin’s curriculum is that truth is subjective, so those students were merely “liberating” that bottle of wine back in 2016), and callous indifference to its students defaming an innocent small business.

Facebook Deletes ‘Natural News’ Facebook Page Shortly After Publishing Anti-Global Warming Video

Facebook has deleted the popular “Natural News” Facebook page according to recent reports.

The Daily Beast reports that Facebook removed the popular Natural News Facebook page, which had nearly 3 million followers, this week. In an article posted on Infowars, the administrator of the Natural News page Mike Adams wrote: “In response to a coordinated, heavily-funded smear campaign against Natural News and myself, the Health Ranger, Facebook has now permanently banned Natural News from posting content.”

Adams has further claimed that Natural News has been banned by Twitter, YouTube, Pinterest, Google News, Apple. Adams, who wrote about alternative medicines and natural remedies on the page writes in his article: “Anyone who questions the safety of toxic vaccines, 5G cell towers, geoengineering, chemotherapy or glyphosate weed killer chemicals is now maliciously attacked, smeared and de-platformed. You’re not even allowed now to talk about nutrition, anti-cancer foods or nutritional supplements without being labeled a “vitamin” website accused of pushing fake cures.”

Adams further attacked Silicon Valley tech giants writing: “Remember: As all this censorship is taking place, the tech giants somehow claim they aren’t censoring anyone at all. They claim to have a monopoly on ‘facts’ or ‘truth’ and proclaim themselves to have the King’s unique right to decide who gets to speak and who must be silenced. These criminals like Zuckerberg, Dorsey and Cook are un-elected, subject to zero transparency and offer no mechanism for due process whereby channels who are banned might defend themselves against unfair, dishonest smears or fake news attacks run by left-wing journo-terrorism hacks.”

He added: “In essence, the entire internet is now run by the most lawless evil war criminals imaginable, and they have zero respect for human rights, human dignity or free speech.” Facebook did not respond to a request for comment from the Daily Beast but a spokesperson stated in May following the mass banning of prominent conservative figures: “We’ve always banned individuals or organizations that promote or engage in violence and hate, regardless of ideology. The process for evaluating potential violators is extensive and it is what led us to our decision to remove these accounts today.”

The Truth about Hate Crime Statistics

If Hate Crimes were such an epidemic, why would the Progressives need to orchestrate hoaxes and blame white people for crimes committed by blacks? Just like Climate Change, the numbers don’t support the narrative.

NEW YORK CITY POLICE DEPARTMENT’S HATE CRIME RACIAL STATISTICS HIGHLIGHT LIE IN DE BLASIO’S NARRATIVE

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio blamed “forces of white supremacy” for an attack on a group of Hasidic Jews in Crown Heights, Brooklyn, last month, even though the actual attackers were black.

“It’s really clear that forces of white supremacy have been unleashed,” the 2020 presidential candidate said. “A lot of folks used to be told it was unacceptable to be anti-Semitic, it was unacceptable to be racist and now they’re getting more permission.”

While it is true in some cases that hate crimes involve the narrative of the “angry white male” wreaking havoc on marginalized victims, the actual statistics of New York’s police department appear to tell another story.

In de Blasio’s own city, NYPD crime reports cite hate-crime victims as being “most frequently [w]hite” at 46.1% and hate crime suspects as “most frequently Black” at 55%.

Climate “Science” on Trial; The Moment of Truth

A while back Tony Heller over at Real Climate Science was promoting the theory that Arctic Winds, not warming, were causing the Arctic Ice to decline. The above-linked articles cover the topic. Today however there is a validation of that theory over at Polar Bear Science.

Polar bear habitat update: open water primarily due to winds pushing pack ice

This is the time year when declining sea ice gets some people all worked up. However, declining ice is normal at this time of year and there is always variation in where the most open water appears first. At this time of year, there isn’t much ice ‘melt’ going on. Rather, what we are seeing is the opening up of shore leads and polynyas by winds. (Source)

“Climate Deniers” are, You Guessed it, Racist

Racial Resentment May Be Fueling Climate Denial

After Barack Obama took office, white Americans were less likely to see climate change as a serious problem, according to a recent paper published in the journal Environmental Politics. The study further finds evidence of a link between racial resentment and climate change denial. This is not to suggest that all climate deniers are racists, merely that racial resentment may, in part, be driving climate denial.

If Reality Backs A Climate Change Apocalypse, Why Do Elections Change Politician’s Minds? Climate Change Is and Always Will Be A Non-Scientific Political Issue

If Climate Change is really going to end life on earth, why do the Climate Alarmist Politicians abandon the issue once its Political Liability becomes apparent? Are these Politicians suddenly interested in ending all life as we know it, including their own, or are they simply proving what most people have known all along, that Climate Change was and is nothing more than the latest in a long line of Progressive Hoxes to fool the public into voting away their freedoms and empowering the Government?

Biden Starts Campaign Based on a Divisive Lie; #No Vision Just Lies #Make America an Underachiever Again #Worst Post-War Recovery in History

Vice President Biden Eulogizes ex-KKK member Senator Byrd

Trump was referring to protesters against the removal of a statue of Confederate general Robert E. Lee, as well as to non-violent left-wing protesters against racism, and specifically excluded the neo-Nazis from “very fine people” (emphasis added):

REPORTER: The neo-Nazis started this thing. They showed up in Charlottesville.

TRUMP: Excuse me, they didn’t put themselves down as neo-Nazis, and you had some very bad people in that group. But you also had people that were very fine people on both sides. You had people in that group – excuse me, excuse me. I saw the same pictures as you did. You had people in that group that were there to protest the taking down, of to them, a very, very important statue and the renaming of a park from Robert E. Lee to another name.

REPORTER: George Washington and Robert E. Lee are not the same.

TRUMP: Oh no, George Washington was a slave owner. Was George Washington a slave owner? So will George Washington now lose his status? Are we going to take down – excuse me. Are we going to take down, are we going to take down statues to George Washington? How about Thomas Jefferson? What do you think of Thomas Jefferson? You like him? Okay, good. Are we going to take down his statue? He was a major slave owner. Are we going to take down his statue? You know what? It’s fine, you’re changing history, you’re changing culture, and you had people – and I’m not talking about the neo-Nazis and the white nationalists, because they should be condemned totally – but you had many people in that group other than neo-Nazis and white nationalists, okay? And the press has treated them absolutely unfairly. Now, in the other group also, you had some fine people, but you also had troublemakers and you see them come with the black outfits and with the helmets and with the baseball bats – you had a lot of bad people in the other group too.

It didn’t take long for this to start grabbing the headlines.

Joe Biden Kicks Off 2020 Campaign by Spreading Charlottesville ‘Fine People’ Hoax (Source)

See the full interview here:

BTW, President Trump condemned those who deserved to be condemned. I have yet to see any Democrat condemn ANTIFA. The America Idea Biden talks about is founded in the 1st Amendment which guarantees a person’s right to free speech. While I may find much of what the Political Left says offensive, I will fight to the death to defend their right to be offensive. Defending someone’s right to free speech doesn’t mean you support the message. That is what Progressives seem to fail to grasp. President Trump was supporting the 1st Amendment at Charlottesville, not the Neo-Nazis and White Supremacists. The very fact that the Progressives have to twist the truth proves they don’t have any legitimate arguments. Everyone should support the attitude that “I may not support what you are saying, but I support your right to say it.” Conservatives find Socialism offensive but they aren’t censoring Bernie Sanders, they are handing him a microphone.

On Earth Day, gloomy predictions haven’t come to pass

This Earth Day, it almost feels like we should be carving some turkey. Why? Because we have a lot to be thankful for since the first Earth Day event occurred 49 years ago.

We should be thankful that the gloom-and-doom predictions made throughout the past several decades haven’t come true. Fear-mongering about explosive population growth, food crises and the imminent depletion of natural resources have been a staple of Earth Day events since 1970.

If $15 Minimum Wage Is Such a Good Idea, Why Did AOC’s Bar Close Down?

The brilliant Thomas Sowell, when in college, considered himself a Marxist. Asked what changed him, Sowell said, “Evidence.”

After completing undergrad at Harvard and obtaining a master’s in economics, Sowell landed a summer internship with the Department of Labor. While there, he researched the impact of minimum wage law on employment. Sowell learned two things, both of which he found startling. First, minimum wage laws create job loss by pricing the unskilled out of the labor force. Second, Sowell discovered that “the people in the labor department really were not interested in that, because the administration of the minimum wage was supplying one-third of the money that was keeping the labor department going. … I realized that institutions have their own agendas and their own incentives.” In short, Sowell found that the Department of Labor did not care about the real-world effects of the minimum wage law. He credits this experience, this search for evidence, with having the “biggest” impact on his thinking. (Source)

After that, Rome was no longer a Republic, but it all ties back to the embracing of Political Intolerance and Violence that started the ball rolling.

Dear President Trump,

The undersigned organizations and individuals write to express our strong support for the proposed President’s Commission on Climate Security. It is our understanding that this commission, which is being planned and would be directed by Dr. William Happer of the National Security Council staff, is currently being considered by your senior White House staff and relevant Cabinet secretaries and agency heads. The commission would consist of a small number of distinguished experts on climate-related science and national security. It would be charged with conducting an independent, high-level review of the Fourth National Climate Assessment and other official reports relating to climate and its implications for national security. Its deliberations would be subject to the transparency requirements of the Federal Advisory Committees Act. (Source)

Climategate 2.0 Provides More Evidence of Fraud; Constants Can’t Cause Variations…That is Why they are Called Constants

Greenpeace Founder: Global Warming Hoax Pushed by Corrupt Scientists ‘Hooked on Government Grants’ (Source)

We at CO2 is life have pointed out countless times that CO2 is a constant, blanketing the globe with 410 ppm CO2. CO2 is 410 ppm at the North Pole, South Pole, Equator, Surface, and 70 km up into the Mesosphere. The above email proves that the Climate “Scientist” actually understand the basics of Ceteris Paribus Cause and Effect. Because CO2 is a constant, it can’t cause a temperature differential in one desert at a certain latitude and altitude without causing the same effect in another desert on the same latitude and altitude. CO2, after all, provides back radiation so the amount of “trapped” radiation between 13 and 18µ by CO2 would be constant for every 1°C Surface Temperature. If CO2 increased from 280 ppm in 1850 to 410 in 2018 at the North Pole, it did the same at the South Pole. If CO2 generated 1.6 W/M^2 in additional back radiation at the North Pole, it did the same at the South Pole.

Because the effect of CO2 is a constant and defined by the quantum physics of a CO2 molecule, one doesn’t need countless temperature measurements to measure the impact of CO2. One only needs one long-term continuous instrument record measured in a relatively consistent manner and environment. That place is Central England, and temperature graphic demonstrates basically 0.00°C change since the late-1600s early 1700s. In other words, CO2 increasing from 280 ppm to 410 ppm made no measurable impact on the temperature trend. Current temperatures for all seasons are well within the norm of the past nearly 400 years.

Where this concept is most damning however is when it is applied to the various sea level measurements. No matter where you are on the oceans you are exposed to 410 ppm CO2. NOAA does a great job providing the evidence of the CO2 caused sea level rise fraud. Here we have sea level rise for the East Coast of America and the rate of increase is about the height of 2 dimes, or 5.5 mm/yr. At this pace, it would take 70,000 years to submerge the Empire State Building.

The problem is, when we go out to the West Coast, where CO2 is also 410 ppm, sea levels are increasing at a much much much lower rate. Some areas on the West Coast actually have sea levels FALLING!!!

If we go out to Hawaii, where CO2 is also 410 ppm, things seem to be pretty steady.

If we go up to Canada, where CO2 is 410 ppm, we see that sea level is actually collapsing.

Sweden, where CO2 is 410 ppm, is also seeing sea level collapse.

Japan, where CO2 is 410 ppm, sea level has been flat for almost 100 years.

Spain, where CO2 is 410 ppm, is also flat.

Iceland, which is right next to the melting Greenland Glacier and has CO2 of 410 ppm, is also basically flat, with current levels below the levels of the mid-1960s.

Antarctica, where CO2 is ppm and giant ice shelves calve off every other day, is also basically flat.

Up in Alaska, where we are supposedly going to have an ice-free North Pole and CO2 is 410, the sea levels are all over the place, but mostly FALLING!!!

The bottom line is that there is way way way too much variability in sea levels to attribute any change to a constant CO2. If CO2 was the cause, sea levels would be experiencing a parallel shift upward and this simply isn’t happening.

Oh, and for those of you that are worried about New York flooding. Battery Park shows no rise in sea level since 2000…and CO2 is 410 ppm.

Pensacola Florida, where CO2 is 410 ppm, also looks pretty safe.

Sea level variation is also tied to natural cycles related to the sun, not CO2.

Bottom line, you have to look hard and wide to find a sea level data set to support the alarmist’s claims. More importantly, none of the data sets I examined demonstrate an acceleration in sea level increase which would be the CO2 signature. Doubt me? See for yourselves. (Source)

Why Obama Will Go Down in History as One of America’s Worst Presidents; 8 Years of Doing Nothing of Value

FFR

While there is no denying that President Obama won the Presidency during a very difficult economic time. There is also no denying that nothing he did was stimulating the economy. Obamacare and much greater regulations did nothing but create uncertainty. Ironically, the major job-creating industry during his era was the Fracking and Energy Sectors. What economic advancement there was can be 100% attributed to 1) Monetary Policy and 2) Sectors that he attempted to eviscerate.

Economists agree: Trump, not Obama, gets credit for economy (Source)

Monetary Policy Drove Stock Market In Obama Years (Source)

FRACKING BOOM MASKS OBAMA’S HORRIFYING ECONOMIC NUMBERS (Source)

This is how he spins this approach. Note: GE is now in freefall, and Wind and Solar haven’t made a dent in our energy production.

Economic textbooks will need to be rewritten to explain how someone with 0.00% interest rates and a doubling of the Federal Debt couldn’t get economic growth above 3% for a single year. It is impossible to overstate what an economic failure President Obama truly was.

Debt.JPG

Progressives can claim all they want that Obama was behind the US recovery, but they will never be able to erase the history recorded in the Fed Funds Rate. The 0.00% for almost 100% of the Obama Era is undeniable testimony that his policies were doing nothing to spur the economy. What is the Proof? The Dog-Leg in the rates once the economy started discounting the end of his administration. Optimism returned once the Obama Era neared its end. President Trump has the US Economy ACCELERATING UPWARD extremely late in a business cycle, wages are ACCELERATING UPWARD, Rates are being driven higher due to strong MARKET CONDITIONS, and the recent 3.0% GDP Growth is higher than any year under President Obama, and once again, we are almost 10 years into a recovery. Strong economic growth usually occurs at the start of the recovery, not at the end.

Obama did nothing to alter the trend in atmospheric CO2, absolutely nothing.

Climategate Pt Deux; More Fraud Exposed

We’ve pointed out countless times that CO2 is a constant, therefore it can’t cause differences between similar environments. It appears that the Climate “Scientists” are well aware of this fact, and choose to ignore it.

Oooops, wonder how Congress is going to react to this one? You would think that for a “settled science” the error bars would be negligible. The variation of a ball dropped in a vacuum is 9.8 m/sec^2 +/- 0. That is what a settled science does, it removes the error.

Response to Scott Adams; The CO2isLife Top 5 Skeptical Arguments

Top-5-Lists

Scott Adams of Dilbert fame recently sent out a request for the top 5 skeptical or pro-global warming arguments. His challenge can be seen here:

#1) The global community has spent literally trillions of dollars, both directly and indirectly through regulation and opportunity costs trying to reduce CO2 emissions. The benefits of those expenditures cannot even be measured. The trend of CO2 simply remains unaltered by climate change spending. That money is being spent on the highly speculative belief that man can actually alter atmospheric CO2, a level many believe is dictated by the oceans, and not man through a relationship called “Henry’s Law.” The point being, that even if global warming is a real threat, spending money on reducing carbon emissions doesn’t seem to deliver any benefits. Society would be better served spending money on climate change mitigation like reinforcing dams, desalination plants, forest management to prevent fires, and of course building schools, hospitals, roads, and critical infrastructure.

#2) Global temperature records are “adjusted” on a biblical scale, rendering them effectively useless in any real field of science. Conclusions based on garbage data are simply garbage. Fortunately, the physics of a CO2 molecule are constant, as is the concentration throughout the atmosphere. CO2 produced today has the same physical properties of CO2 produced 1,000s of years ago. CO2 is 410 ppm at the N Pole, S Pole, Equator, Surface, and 70 km up. In other words, the effect of CO2 is constant no matter where you are on earth, so you don’t need 1,000s of measurement units, you simply need 1 data set that has been measured and recorded in a constant fashion throughout time without any major changes to the surrounding environment. That location is Central England which is the longest continuous instrumental record of temperature. The Central England data set shows no relationship between CO2 and temperature since 1650, and current temperatures are at or below levels reached in the 1600s.

No real science would have 98% of the experts agree if they knew cherry picking and manipulating the data was required to support their position.

CO2 Can’t Cause the Warming Alarmists Claim it Does

#3) Atmospheric temperatures show warming due to many factors other than CO2. Water vapor is by far the most potent greenhouse gas and has been increasing due to the “greening” of the N. Hemisphere. The urban heat island effect can cause warming as hot roads and buildings replace cooling grasslands and forests. The sun cycles, cosmic rays, and clouds also alter the atmospheric temperatures. To adjust for those factors one needs to identify a location that controls for the urban heat island effect and water vapor. That “control” is Antarctica where there is no heat island effect, no water vapor, and CO2 that is identical to the rest of the globe. The temperatures in Antarctica show no warming what so ever since the 1800s when records began, and CO2 was around 40% lower.

No real science relies upon computer models and forecasts as “evidence.” The 98% of climate scientist have no explanation as to why higher CO2 had no impact on temperatures in Antarctica. They simply ignore inconvenient facts.

#4) The Hockeystick chart, on which most of this Climate Change Hoax is based, is some of the most damning evidence against CO2 being the cause of warming. The Hockeystick chart shows two distinct “dog-legs.” The first dog-leg occurs in 1902 and coincides with the addition of instrumental records (we will ignore the obvious data manipulation of not including the instrumental record that exists prior to 1902) and the second dog-leg occurs when all proxies are dropped in 1980. The dog-legs occur along with the data composition adjustments. There is no physical explanation as to why temperatures would dog-leg without a corresponding dog-leg in CO2. The trend in temperatures makes dramatic trend changes, yet the trend in CO2 remained constant. Clearly, something other than the CO2 molecule must have caused the dog-legs. The physics of the CO2 molecule, and its absorption of long-wave infrared electromagnetic radiation, simply don’t support dog-legs in the temperature graphic.

No real science would reach a 98% consensus based upon such garbage data, and the malfeasance exposed in the Climategate emails. Anyway, consensus doesn’t prove anything, the evidence does. No matter how many experts agreed the earth was flat, it made no difference to reality. The very fact that Climate Science relies on computer models and consensus pretty much proves they are anti-science. Real science depends on credible evidence and data, experimentation, and reproducibility. Climate science has none of the hallmarks associated with real science.

5) Real science doesn’t rely on absolute levels, they measure the marginal changes. Real science looks at the ΔY for a ΔX, or change in Y for a change in X. If one looks at the “adjustments” to the global temperatures, they are all done so in order to make temperatures more linear. By making them more linear, the models that relate CO2 to temperature produce better results. CO2 is linear, and it is pretty hard to manipulate that data because it is virtually constant around the globe. Temperatures are anything but linear, so to make the case that CO2 and Temperatures are related, the temperature data needs to be “adjusted” to make the data set more linear. The problem is, the absolute level of CO2 isn’t what matters. CO2 doesn’t warm the atmosphere, the amount of long-wave infrared electromagnetic radiation that the CO2 absorbs is what warms the atmosphere. The marginal absorption of long-wave infrared electromagnetic radiation by CO2 isn’t linear, it is logarithmic. What that means is that each additional CO2 molecule added to the atmosphere absorbs LESS long-wave infrared electromagnetic radiation. This is the law of diminishing marginal returns. CO2 is like taking aspirin. The first one reduces the pain by 90%, and next one 5%, and on and on until taking an additional aspirin will actually make you sick. The fact that the physics of the CO2 molecule doesn’t support a linear trend in temperatures, and yet all the temperature “adjustments” work to make the temperature more linear pretty much proves this is scientific fraud. The “adjustments” are made to accommodate the models, not the real physics of the CO2 molecule and the greenhouse gas effect.

6) Temperatures have been extremely volatile during the Holocene. There is nothing abnormal about the volatility over the past 150 years. Most of the volatility occurred with stable CO2, proving something other than CO2 causes extreme changes in climate. One can simply test the ice core data for the Null Hypothesis “Man is not causing climate change” and it will not be rejected using the scientific method.

7) The geological record shows that CO2 has been as high as 7,000 ppm, and earth NEVER experienced catastrophic warming. The earth fell into an ice age when CO2 was 4,000 ppm, or nearly 10x the level of today. CO2 and temperatures are simply not related on a geologic scale.

h2o-and-temperature-cross

8) Water vapor and atmospheric temperatures are almost indistinguishable. Where there is water vapor there is warmth. CO2 is constant throughout the atmosphere and cannot cause this type of temperature profile.

9) If something is understood, it can be modeled. Climate models fail miserably and will continue to fail miserably because CO2 and Temperatures aren’t linearly related. As time passes, it is a 100% certainty that the difference between the measured UNADJUSTED temperatures and the predicted model results will INCREASE. Any real science with a 98% consensus would be able to model the system of which they claim to be experts.

10) Al Gore’s chart demonstrates that A) Temperatures LEAD CO2 by between 800 and 1,500 years and B) Change is the normal condition for the Climate. An unchanging climate doesn’t exist in the geological record. Mother Nature simply likes climatic variations, and trying to stop natural cycles is probably the most idiotic idea ever conceived by mankind.

Any real science knows that the cause always has to lead the effect. The 98% Consensus Climate Scientists effectively believe lung-cancer causes smoking.

Filling in the Missing Pieces

One of the main aspects on CAGW that we at CO2isLife haven’t been able to adequately explain is what truly happens once a CO2 molecule absorbs a photon of 13 to 18µ LWIR. The conventional wisdom, the wisdom on which all the CAGW theory is based, is that CO2 absorbs the photon and then reradiates it back towards the earth or oceans. That turns out to be correct in 1/1,000,000,000 events…or statistically 0.00.

What happens, in reality, is that a CO2 molecule absorbs a photon and becomes excited exactly like the above graphic. The molecule “bends” and creates a “dipole.”  If enough time passes and nothing collides with the excited molecule, it will re-emit the photon. That, however, takes about 0.2 seconds.

The more likely outcome, by a factor of 1 billion, is that the molecule will collide with another molecule, most likely N2, and transfer that energy to the N2 molecule without re-emitting the photon. The energy is simply converted from EM energy to kinetic energy. Therefore, because CO2 only represents 1 out of every 2,500 molecules in the atmosphere, an excited CO2 molecule can’t really alter the entire energy balance by much.

From:David Burton
Sent: Wednesday, November 12, 2014 10:49 PM
To: William Happer
Subject: Another dumb question from Dave

Dear Prof. Happer,

At your UNC lecture you told us many things which I had not known, but two of them were these:

  1. At low altitudes, the mean time between molecular collisions, through which an excited CO2 molecule can transfer its energy to another gas molecule (usually N2) is on the order of 1nanosecond.
  2. The mean decay time for an excited CO2 molecule to emit an IR photon is on the order of 1second(a billion times as long).

Did I understand that correctly? [YES, PRECISELY.  I ATTACH A PAPER ON RADIATIVE LIFETIMES OF CO2 FROM THE CO2 LASER COMMUNITY. YOU SHOULD LOOK AT THE BENDING-MODE TRANSITIONS, FOR EXAMPLE, 010 – 000. AS I THINK I MAY HAVE INDICATED ON SLIDE 24, THE RADIATIVE DECAY RATES FOR THE BENDING MODE ALSO DEPEND ON VIBRATION AND ROTATIONAL QUANTUM NUMBERS, AND THEY CAN BE A FEW ORDERS OF MAGNITUDE SLOWER THAN 1 S^{-1} FOR HIGHER EXCITED STATES. THIS IS BECAUSE OF SMALL MATRIX ELEMENTS FOR THE TRANSITION MOMENTS.]
You didn’t mention it, but I assume H2O molecules have a similar decay time to emit an IR photon. Is that right, too? [YES.  I CAN’T IMMEDIATELY FIND A SIMILAR PAPER TO THE ONE I ATTACHED ABOUT CO2, BUT THESE TRANSITIONS HAVE BEEN CAREFULLY STUDIED IN CONNECTION WITH INTERSTELLAR MASERS. I ATTACH SOME NICE VIEWGRAPHS THAT SUMMARIZE THE ISSUES, A FEW OF WHICH TOUCH ON H2O, ONE OF THE IMPORTANT INTERSTELLAR MOLECULES.  ALAS, THE SLIDES DO NOT INCLUDE A TABLE OF LIFETIMES. BUT YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO TRACK THEM DOWN FROM REFERENCES ON THE VIEWGRAPHS IF YOU LIKE. ROUGHLY SPEAKING, THE RADIATIVE LIFETIMES OF ELECTRIC DIPOLE MOMENTS SCALE AS THE CUBE OF THE WAVELENTH AND INVERSELY AS THE SQUARE OF THE ELECTRIC DIPOLE MATRIX ELEMENT (FROM BASIC QUANTUM MECHANICS) SO IF AN ATOM HAS A RADIATIVE LIFETIME OF 16 NSEC AT A WAVELENGTH OF 0.6 MIRONS (SODIUM), A CO2 BENDING MODE TRANSITION, WITH A WAVELENGTH OF 15 MICRONS AND ABOUT 1/30 THE MATRIX ELEMENT SHOULD HAVE A LIFETIME OF ORDER 16 (30)^2 (15/.6)^3 NS = 0.2 S.
So, after a CO2 (or H2O) molecule absorbs a 15 micron IR photon, about 99.9999999% of the time it will give up its energy by collision with another gas molecule, not by re-emission of another photon. Is that true (assuming that I counted the right number of nines)? [YES, ABSOLUTELY.]

An Einstein Thought Experiment on Climate Change

For the Climate Change “Experts” to be correct, Mother Nature has to be wrong. Catastrophic Anthropogenic Global Warming (CAGW) is just that, Catastrophic. The theory is that Anthropogenic CO2 is basically a doomsday bomb. From the geologic record, we know this is nonsense, and that Mother Nature has produced CO2 in vastly greater quantities than Man could ever hope to produce and life thrived. CO2 is, after all, the molecule on which all organic based life is derived. For some reason, the climate “experts” seem to believe that the physical properties of Anthropogenic CO2 somehow differ from those of Naturally produced CO2, they don’t.

How then, would Einstein go about disproving the myth of CAGW? He would use a “thought experiment.” Einstein solved the theory of relativity by simply watching a clock while riding a train and imagined what things would be like if the train was traveling near the speed of light. We will do the same here in regards to climate change.

The Achilles Heal of the Climate Alarmists is that their “theory” treats the atmosphere almost like a closed system. That is why they focus on global temperature. The argument is that CO2 is “trapping” heat in the atmosphere, resulting in a gradual increase in temperatures. This assumption isn’t even close to true, the atmosphere has no insulated ceiling, thus freely allowing energy to enter and exit. Most importantly, energy is in flux, and different wavelengths of Electro-Magnetic Radiation have different physical properties. The key to the thought experiment is to then demonstrate the climate system in a thought experiment. To do this we will use the giant water bucket popular at water parks.

Energy is in flux, it enters the system at a certain rate, and it leaves the system at a certain rate. You can fill your car up with gasoline in 10 minutes with a large flow capacity hose, and then slowly allow fuel to drain out through a low flow capacity fuel injector and drive your car for hours. The climate alarmists use a linear model for the climate theory. The Sun’s energy is constant they say, CO2 increases, CO2 reduces the outgoing Longwave Infrared Radiation, therefore temperatures increase. That is their theory in a nutshell. It is a masterpiece in sophistry.

The problem they have with that theory is the energy flux of the atmosphere is highly nonlinear. Energy accumulates in the oceans during a “La Niña”, and then is belched out into the atmosphere during an “El Niño. The energy flux is absolutely enormous, with the ocean temperatures varying up to 4°C over a cycle, and therein lies the problem.

Sea “surface” reaches down about 100m. (Source)

The difference between day and night temperatures of the oceans can also vary greatly. BTW, note how the very surface is COOLER than the water immediately below it. That is evidence CO2 and wind are actually working to COOL the oceans because the wavelengths CO2 absorbs don’t penetrate the surface of the oceans. (More below)

diurnal sea temp

(Source)

Enormous amounts of energy are required to warm the oceans, and enormous amounts of energy are released when the oceans cool. The specific heat of water is 4.186 joule/gram °C, where a joule is a W*Sec. The marginal contribution of Anthropogenic CO2 (Difference between 270 and 410 ppm) is a whopping 0.94 W/m^2. (Source)

co2 anthropogenic

That means that Anthropogenic CO2 can warm 1gm of water 1°C every 4.186/0.94 or 4.45 Seconds over an area of 1 m^2. A m^3 of water weighs 1,000,000 gms. It would take 4,450,000 seconds, or 1,250 hours or nearly 2 months for Anthropogenic CO2 to warm a m^3 of sea surface water  1°C. To put things in perspective, at high noon on a clear day, the oceans are being bathed by 1,000 W/m^2 by incoming solar radiation. (Source) It only takes the sun 1.16 hours to warm the oceans as much as Anthropogenic CO2 does in 1,250 hours. On a cloudy day, the incoming solar radiation may only be 100 W/m^2, so the variations are enormous, yet still dwarf the contributions of anthropogenic CO2. A similar example could be done using the time it takes CO2 to replace the energy lost from just one cloudy day.

Here is the best evidence I’ve found that the sun is warming the oceans, not CO2. The warming trend has occurred along with a decrease in cloud cover over the oceans. Note how both charts of Low-Level Clouds and Temperatures “kink” or “dog-leg” around 1999. CO2 shows no relationship with temperature at all, but water vapor does.

With that background, we can now design the Einstein Thought Experiment. Assuming Mother Nature isn’t an imbecile, we would have to assume that she built safety valves in her system to ensure no catastrophic events ever happen. She did that is various ways 1) the El Niños act as pressure valves and 2) CO2 shows a logarithmic decay in its absorption of 13 to 18µ Long Wave Infrared Radiation (LWIR). The Water Park Giant Tipping Bucket is a great demonstration of how the climate system works, and why CO2 is truly irrelevant. The Bucket is filled by an enormous pipe that can fill a 1,000-gallon bucket in about 10 minutes, so the flow rate is about 100 gallons/minute. The major fill pipe is the solar radiation of 1,000 W/m^2 in the climate system. CO2’s contribution to the climate system would be like hanging a garden hose over the side of the bucket with a flow rate of about 0.1 Gallons/minute. By the time CO2 has poured 1 gallon into the giant bucket, the bucket pours all CO2’s water out and things start all over again. Because the bucket is continually dumping out all the accumulated water/energy, CO2’s contribution can never actually “accumulate” in the atmosphere. There simply isn’t enough time between cycles for CO2 to have a material impact.

There is also one additional twist to the above thought experiment. CO2 shows a logarithmic decay of its absorption between 13 to 18µ LWIR. To understand this, imagine that the garden hose isn’t drooped across the top, but is piped in at the bottom of the bucket. At first, when the bucket is empty, CO2’s water easily flows into the system, but as more and more water gets into the bucket, the back pressure grows, and less and less CO2 water is piped into the bucket. Eventually, no additional CO2 water will make it into the bucket, no matter how much CO2 water is in the filling tank. 0 to 410 ppm CO2 added 7.85 W/m^2 to the system, doubling CO2 from 410 to 820 will only add an additional 1.88 W/m^2.

If you think of the bucket filling and overflowing without tipping as a catastrophic event, there is no way for CO2 water to ever prevent the bucket from tipping, so it can never cause a catastrophic event. As long as El Niños exist, CO2 will never be able to cause a catastrophic event.

There appears to be another safety valve Mother Nature created that I don’t fully understand, but it highlights how many aspects of the climate are counter-intuitive. When the incoming solar radiation is REDUCEDthe amount of radiation that actually reaches the earth’s surface actually INCREASES.

The solar radiation coming to the Earth (and individual hemispheres) is reduced (Fig. 2). The anomaly value of the solar radiation coming to the Earth surface (in respect to the mean for 1961 – 1990) from 1850 to 2013 is 3.49Е+07 J/m2. The difference of solar radiation coming to the equatorial zone and polar regions of the Earth (and hemispheres) is increased for this period by 5.83Е+07 J/m2 (relative to the mean for 1961 – 1990). The SST temperature on the Earth and individual hemispheres is increased.

(Source)

Additionally, in reality, CO2 is more likely to cause surface evaporation. The latent heat of evaporation is 2.26 j/g, so CO2 is more likely to pull heat away from the ocean surface than to add to be because H2O readily absorbs 13 to 18µ LWIR likely triggering evaporation. The following chart demonstrates that 13 to 18µ LWIR doesn’t penetrate the oceans to any depth, so those factors combined with a blowing wind aiding evaporation further makes the case that CO2 cools the oceans, it doesn’t warm them. Visible radiation clearly penetrates and warms the oceans, especially very high energy blue light.

Lastly, climate alarmists make it sound as if all W/m^2 are created equal, they aren’t. A W/m^2 of blue light is likely to warm the deeper oceans, a W/m^2 of 13 to 18µ LWIR will never reach that depth. A W/m^2 from an LED Flashlight will travel to outer space without warming anything. Only when a W/m^2 is absorbed and converted to thermal energy does a W/m^2 result in an increase in temperature, and different wavelengths have different absorptive properties.

The above article would make a great High School Science Fair Demonstration.

Post Publish Edit: This seems to validate the theory detailed above…and we’re not climate scientists or experts.

An ocean of inconvenient truth
The estimated increase in ocean heat content during 1990-2015 is the same as that between 1921–1946, according to a study in the PNAS. Change in atmospheric CO2 was ~70 ppm (1990-2015) vs. ~10 ppm (1921-1946). (Source)

More evidence CO2 does not warm the oceans. Ocean temperatures have not increased with an increase in CO2. (Source)
