Climate Science Fiction; Ice Melts in Sub-Zero Temperatures.

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:

  1. CO2 can freeze fire and boil ice, CO2 won’t be held back by your “temperature science “. CO2 can still forgive your lack of faith if you fall to your knees right now , wherever you are, and cry out from your soul “Dear CO2 come into my heart right now and forgive an unbeliever”.

  2. CO2 can do things these days that even CO2 was neither aware nor able to do 40 years ago.
    And even the best scientist did not knew about the superamazing apocalyptic skills CO2 is capable of.

    All these fantastic,apocalyptic abilities CO2 has nowadays
    did not exist before the 80ies
    and they still do not exist outside of planet earths atmosphere
    as the the almost pure CO2-atmosphere on mars does not give a crap
    about what scientists on earth say.
    On Mars it is just a very weak climate gas.

    The reason is very simple by the way:
    When the global cooling scam collapsed in the 80ies,
    they needed a new thing to start and establish a new scam=climate change,formerly known as global warming.

    The only chance to succeed was to create a new satan,a super villain
    so that they can pretend to be the new super heroes to save us:
    Et voila- that’s how they made a new Rambo Schwarzenegger out of the Woody Allen molecule co2.
    Well it’s still a Woody Allen molecule and far away from being a super strong silverback king kong-
    but the MSN says it is,and these guys are always right.

    And noone these days cares about thousands of articles from the 70ies about global cooling((these articles have been declared non existent by big brother))

    or that co2 is an insignificant climate gas and man made co2 in our atmosphere is less than a drop in a bucket.

  3. Ice cannot melt below 0 deg. C, but it will sublime if the partial pressure of the water in the atmosphere is less than the vapour pressure of the ice.

      1. Something I’ve never thought about before, if the ice sublimes into water vapour without passing through the liquid phase, presumably it has to acquire the requisite amount of latent heat of vapourisation, but as it does so without apparently passing through the liquid phase, what about the latent heat of fusion which would normally be required to melt it?
        Does it have to acquire enough energy to *virtually* melt even though it never appears to go through the liquid phase?
        I can find no reference to that anywhere, but one imagines it would be necessary…
        Hmmm…
