Do the laws of physics cease to exist in the Slimate Clience Departments of our Universities? As I’ve pointed out countless times on this Blog, I am not a Climate Scientist, never have been, never will be, but I know a whole lot about science, the scientific method, statistics, mathematics, computer modeling, quantum physics, chemistry and have a Ph.D. in common sense. The only defined mechanism by which CO2 can affect climate change is through its absorption, thermalization and/or re-emittance of Infrared Radiation between the wavelengths of 13 and 18µ. My experience has been that if you simply ask the question “how would 13 and 18µ cause that observation,” 99% of all the claims made by climate alarmists crumble under scientific scrutiny. Just yesterday I wrote an article applying this principle to the Polynya in the Weddell Sea. There simply is no mechanism by which CO2 could focus the GHG effect on a specific area of ice, and not have the same impact elsewhere. CO2 blankets the globe, there aren’t large areas with higher and lower concentrations of CO2, especially over the ice desert of Antarctica. CO2 is well mixed at 400ppm across the globe.
Recently there have been a lot of alarmist claims that CO2 is causing the polar ice sheets to melt. In order to melt ice, it takes a ginormous amount of energy, and for the atmosphere to melt ice the #1 criteria is that the atmospheric temperature must be above 0°C. 0°C represents the melting point of water, 100°C represents boiling. In order for the polar ice to be melting due to CO2 caused Global Warming ( and it has to be warming not climate change, only warmth melts ice), one would have to demonstrate that the polar regions have temperatures above 0°C during the time of the ice melt. The problem is, the polar regions haven’t shown any warming over the past 100 years.
Extensive analysis of temperature trends in the Arctic reveals that there has been no detectable long-term change since the beginning of the 20th century, and thus predictions of a sea ice-free Arctic in the coming decades due to dramatically rising temperatures are not rooted in observation.
The same lack of warming can be found in Antarctica as well. This may be news to the experts in the Slimate Clience departments of our universities, to have melting, you have to have warmth, and if the atmosphere isn’t warming, something else must be melting that ice. The only other logical explanation would be the oceans are melting the ice, and if that is the case, you would have to explain how CO2 and IR Radiation between 13 and 18µ can warm water, which it can’t. This fact hasn’t gone unnoticed by others:
