Heinlein Explains Global Warming:   “It is a truism that almost any sect, cult, or religion will legislate its creed into law if it acquires the political power to do so.”


    It is obvious to any physicist that the greenhouse conjecture is false, because the direct solar radiation reaching the surface is less than a third of what would be required to explain observed surface temperatures.

    James Hansen noted this apparent discrepancy and, not realizing that the rest of the required thermal energy is in fact supplied during the day by non-radiative processes, he wrongly assumed that radiation from the cold atmosphere could be added to solar radiation and the total used in Stefan-Boltzmann calculations. But even the net of 390W/m^2 which included the back radiation would not be enough because it is variable flux and can thus only achieve a mean temperature much closer to freezing point. He really needed over 450W/m^2 but glossed over that fact and “taught” the world of climatology the totally incorrect physics based on compounding the radiation from two effectively sub-zero sources and assuming that the sum “explained” observations.

    Now, most of the atmospheric radiation comes from the most prolific “greenhouse” gas, water vapor which is claimed to cause warming, though evidence suggests the opposite. So where did it all go so wrong? Hansen incorrectly assumed that, without IR-active greenhouse gases, the temperatures in the troposphere would be isothermal. That is not what the Second Law of Thermodynamics tells us, because it says entropy will be a maximum, not temperatures equal. Every vortex cooling tube in the world demonstrates how a force field (like gravity or centrifugal force) sets up a radial temperature gradient as that force acts on molecules in flight between collisions. The “lapse rate” (climatology speak for temperature gradient) is not due to imaginary “parcels” of air rising, expanding and cooling, because there is nothing to hold any such parcels together as the molecules move randomly between collisions at speeds of about 1,800 Km/hour.

    This temperature gradient evolves at the molecular level in accord with the process of maximum entropy production, and that state of maximum entropy is reached when there are no remaining unbalanced energy potentials. That means that the sum of mean molecular gravitational potential energy and kinetic energy is homogeneous, and so there is a temperature gradient.

    Once we understand that the temperature gradient is what physicists call the state of thermodynamic equilibrium, then everything falls into place. We can deduce quite simply that new solar energy absorbed in the stratosphere and upper atmosphere each morning will disturb the equilibrium and it can only be restored by downward non-radiative heat transfers, these being the real source of the missing energy Hansen tried to explain with back radiation.

    So, in fact, temperatures in a planetary system build up from anchoring layers in the upper troposphere and above, all the way to the core, because the temperature gradient, forming at the molecular level, can be calculated and shown to occur in solids, liquids and gases. It forms by a slow process which can be over-ridden, and is, in the oceans and the stratosphere, but, in general, it dominates. It is observed in all planetary tropospheres, and so the probability of this “heat creep” hypothesis being wrong is millions to one against.

Zero CO2?

The scary part is not having enough CO2..!! Currently we have near 400 ppm & “if” planet Earth fell to 200 ppm, we would undoubtedly face starvation ; don’t need a hypothesis, it’s a fact.!
It is not simply Crops taking longer to reach harvest… most would not ripen at all and many would fail to mature seasonally ; those that did, would produce insufficient yields…
With less CO2, means less Tree & plant life overall.! This means less conversion to Oxygen through photosynthesis & less cleansing of the natural environment.
Most scary part ; many AGW Alarmists actually “think” we should aim for zero CO2 because in their blind faith ; CO2 causes Global Warming? Yet they can’t see the “real” path to extinction.!

Why Refugees? By Michael D Funk

Have you ever stopped to consider why there are refugees? Why don’t they just stand together and fight back against an overly aggressive government such as ISIS? I believe the answer is fundamental to the freedom we enjoy here in the USA—a freedom we are dangerously close to losing if we make hasty emotional decisions based on recent human tragedies.

One of the safeguards we have been constitutionally guaranteed is the right to bear arms. Countries such as Syria and Iraq do not have this right. That means when a group such as ISIS forces its government on a people who do not have the means to protect themselves there are only two choices—be slaughtered or flee and seek asylum in another country.

The Second Amendment gives us a third choice—fight back. And, in fact, this is the primary reason it is part of our constitution. Some think that the reason we have it is only for recreational shooting and hunting. But those who think this way have not studied our history and do not understand why we became a nation to begin with. Nor how important it is to guard and protect the freedom we now have.

These freedoms are seriously under attack and it is entirely up to us whether we keep them in place or not. That means every American citizen must do his/her part in maintaining these freedoms for future generations to enjoy. Otherwise when our ‘well meaning’ government and liberal philosophies restrict these rights and even seek to eliminate the right through gun confiscation we are only one step away from having an out of control government take us over just like ISIS is doing in the Middle East.

That is why it is so important not to exploit these terrible tragedies for a political purpose that in the end will not serve the American people well. I urge you to think this thing through, change your mind about the issue if you need to and vote for those who will unequivocally support the US Constitution. And, in the meantime, let your elected officials know exactly where you stand on this issue. And if you haven’t yet taken a stand, now would be a great time to do so.

Thanks to Tony Heller

“Atmospheric CO2 has risen by 100 parts per million (one part per ten thousand) over the past century. Experts claim that this one molecule has heated the other 10,000 molecules up by more than one degree centigrade.

In order for one molecule to heat up 10,000 other molecules by 1°C, the effective temperature of that one molecule would have to be 10,000°C – about twice the temperature of the surface of the Sun.”
