Timeless home truths about carbon dioxide  

CO2 Absorption Spectrum

There is no Valid Mechanism for CO2 Creating Global Warming

Proof: Laboratory measurements show that carbon dioxide absorbs to extinction at its main peak in 10 meters under atmospheric conditions.* This means there is no radiation left at those frequencies after 10 meters. If then humans double their 3% input of CO2 into the atmosphere, the distance of absorption reduces to 9.7m.
A reduction in distance is not an increase in temperature.
Convectional currents stir the heat around removing any relevance for distance.
Scientists who promote the global warming hype try to work around this fact by claiming something different happens higher in the atmosphere, which they claim
involves unsaturation. The difference due to height is that the absorption peaks get
smaller and sharper, so they separate from each other. Near the earth's surface, the absorption peaks for water vapor partially overlap the absorption peaks for CO2.
Supposedly, in some obfuscated way, separating the peaks creates global warming. There is no real logic to that claim. It is nothing but an attempt to salvage global warming propaganda through obfuscation of complexities.
What it means is that climatologists admit there is no mechanism at lower levels of the atmosphere, and their rationalization for higher up is phony.
It's important to realize that radiation from the sun does not greatly heat the atmosphere, because the sun must give off high frequency radiation in the area of visible light, which goes through the atmosphere. Something as hot as the sun cannot give off low frequency radiation, called infrared. This means that the sun's radiation heats the surface of the earth, and then the heat moves from the earth's surface into the atmosphere through conduction, convection, evaporation and infrared radiation. The infrared radiation can be absorbed by so-called greenhouse gasses.

The Absorption Peaks

Carbon dioxide absorbs infrared radiation (IR) in three narrow bands of frequencies, which are 2.7, 4.3 and 15 micrometers (µM). This means that most of the heat producing radiation escapes it. About 8% of the available black body radiation is picked up by these "fingerprint" frequencies of CO2.

Heinz Hug* showed that carbon dioxide in the air absorbs to extinction at its 15µM peak in about ten meters. This means that CO2 does whatever it's going to do in that amount of space. Twice as much CO2 would do the same thing in about 5m. There's no significant difference between 5m and 10m for global warming, because convectional currents mix the air in such short distances.
But humans could not double the CO2, because they only put 3% of the CO2 in the air. If they put twice as much in, it would do whatever it does in 9.7m instead of 10m. If humans stopped putting any CO2 in the air, it would do whatever it does in 10.3m instead of 10m. In other words, nothing humans do with CO2 could be of the slightest relevance to global warming, even if oceans were not regulating it. (The weaker peaks and shoulders of the peaks absorb in longer distances. While strongest absorption occurs in 10m, weaker absorption for CO2 occurs in about 300 meters. But a 3% increase in CO2 is still only a 3% reduction in the 300m distance for the weak absorption areas.)

The Attempted Fix
This is nothing new. Climate scientists know that more CO2 does not result in more heat under usual conditions. So the mythologists among them try to salvage the global warming propaganda by pretending that something esoteric occurs higher in the atmosphere. The difference is that the absorption peaks for CO2 separate from the peaks for water vapor. Then supposedly, radiation which misses CO2 does not get picked up by water vapor and travels into outer space; and more CO2 causes less radiation to get missed on the shoulders of the peaks.
Everything about that rationalization stretches reality to a point of misrepresentation. The increase in CO2 levels could only be relevant for the last cycle of absorption near the outer edges of the atmosphere, where there is not enough influence of the lower atmosphere to be significant. But the rationalizers claim it is significant in the mid levels of atmosphere. Not so. A 3% increase in CO2 would only shorten the distance of radiation travel by 3% before total absorption occurs.

In other words, at mid levels of the at mosphere, the center of the peaks would absorb at about 30m instead of 10m, while the shoulders would absorb at about 1,000m instead of 300m. Reducing those distance by 3% is not relevant. But just like relativity, if it takes more than a mouthful of arguing to prove them wrong, frauds decree the obfuscation to be fact.
As shown on the page titled "Crunching the Numbers," the quantities involved are so miniscule as to be totally incapable of causing global warming.
There's another major reason why the fix is unreal. Supposedly, it is the outer shoulders on the CO2 peaks which are responsible for global warming. Not only is a small percent of the CO2 influenced by the shoulder radiation, but the distance increases for absorption. There is more nitrogen and oxygen per CO2 molecule in this area. Dilution reduces the temperature increase per unit of energy. If there is 5% as much CO2 on the shoulders, it is spread over 20 times as much space in the atmosphere. This means the temperature effect on the shoulders should be multiplied times 5% twice—once for the decrease in amount of CO2 and once for the dilution of the energy in the atmosphere. So much dilution of so few molecules could
not be responsible for a significant amount of temperature increase.
The miniscule area of concern on the shoulders of the absorption peak for CO2 is shown on one of Heinz Hug's graphs, linked below.

The Ill-Informed Assumptions
The assumption of some persons is that shorter distances mean the heat stays in the atmosphere longer before escaping into space. Supposedly, the radiation will be re-emitted and re-absorbed more often, when distances are shorter.
But they err in two ways. One is in not taking into account the convection which removes the relevance of short distances. The other is in assuming the direction is toward space.
When radiation is re-emitted in the atmosphere, it moves in all directions. The energy does not move closer to space, because it is not directional. The only way heat can move toward the outer atmosphere is through convectional currents.
Here's how the dynamic works. The IR is emitted from the surface of the earth as black body radiation, which has a wide bandwidth. Then CO2 absorbs a fingerprint set of frequencies, which is 8% of the available black body radiation. As it is absorbed, it is instantly converted into heat (in less than a pico second). The heat is distributed over all molecules in the atmosphere, which means 78% nitrogen and 21% oxygen. After some time, an equivalent amount of black body radiation is emitted from everything in the atmosphere, and 8% of it is absorbed by CO2 as fingerprint radiation.
Proponents do not have clear explanations for their assumptions. They use computer models and juggle the numbers until they get the results they want.

The fingerprint type of IR absorption is due to stretching and bending of internal bonds. Nitrogen does not do that. But all matter absorbs and emits IR in proportion to its temperature. This is called "black body" radiation. Physicists say all matter has the same characteristics in absorbing and emitting black body radiation, except that the quantitative proportions vary, mostly due to reflection. For nonreflective substances, such as wood and concrete, the percent IR absorbed or emitted (called emissivity or absorptivity) is around 90% of a perfect black body. Metals are good reflectors of IR, so they have an emissivity of around 50%. This means they emit or absorb about 50% of the infrared radiation which contacts them. Kirchhoff's law says emissivity equals absorptivity, which means everything absorbs and emits black body radiation in the same way.
There is a curve for black body radiation, and it applies to all matter. The curve slides toward higher frequencies for higher temperatures. At earth temperatures (around 300 degrees Kelvin) the black body curve (or Planks curve) peaks at a wavelength of about 10um. The sides of the curve taper off at
about 1um and 30um.
Visible light is 0.4 to 0.8um, which is just above the curve for cold black body radiation, but hot objects will radiate into the visible range, which is of course how an incandescent light bulb works. Carbon dioxide has fingerprint peaks at 2.7, 4.3 and 15um, which are all within the black body radiation curve.
In some quantity, everything in the air including nitrogen and oxygen absorbs and emits black body radiation at frequencies which overlap the frequencies absorbed by CO2. In fact, the only reason why there is IR in the air is because the surface of the earth emits black body radiation in proportion to its temperature. The air then does the same thing at some level.
The question then is, in what quantity is the atmosphere absorbing and emitting black body radiation. The emissivity of nitrogen and oxygen gasses should be close to 100%, since they do not reflect IR significantly. But the larger question is how does the quantity of black body absorption compare to the fingerprint absorption of CO2. Actual measurements and numbers do not seem to exist. So promoters use computer models to divide up the heat of the atmosphere between pollutants such as CO2 and everything else.
They then pull such numbers out of the hat which say increases in CO2 levels will create a global temperature increase of about 6 deg. This is about 20% of the 33 deg. which the atmosphere is said to contribute to the temperature of the globe.
There are about 30 times as many water vapor molecules in the air as CO2 molecules, and water vapor has a more effective fingerprint spectrum. It is also much more variable. This means water vapor will swamp whatever CO2 does. It is obviously not being honest to say CO2 does twenty percent of the heating, when there is a hundred times as much water vapor doing the same thing.

Ocean Temperatures over 800,000 Years Each cycle is an ice age. Now is above the dotted line on the right side. The oceans have been heating continuously since the last ice age. The smaller blips are caused by solar energy, and the larger cycles are caused by heat from within the earth, perhaps related to electromagnetic energy.

Global warming is not published the way science is. It's knowledge out of fakery.

I wonder how many Brit Met and UEA self-titled climate 'specialists' are freemason and or zionist?

CO2 drives the climate and Blair is a saint
Humans contribute ~3-4% to the atmosphere's reservoir of CO2. The CO2 reservoir in the atm. is around 0.04% or 400 parts per million in Hawaii. 3% of 400 is 12 parts per million.
Water vapour is up to 40,000 ppm, 4% with 2.6%, 2,600ppm used as an average. 12 parts per million CO2 is used to bludgeon public perception that CO2 is a harmful pollutant rather than a beneficial plant food that is also essential for humans.
Remember, temperature variation drives atm CO2 volume variation, i.e. T increases, ~800 years later CO2 increases. Global warming profit and agenda driven alarmists would have you believe the cart pushes the horse.

CO2 Nears 400 ppm – Relax! It’s Not Global Warming ‘End Times’
— But Only A ‘Big Yawn’ — Climate Depot Special Report

Renowned Climatologist: ‘You can go outside and spit and have the same effect as doubling carbon dioxide’
'Scientists note that geologically speaking, the Earth is currently in a 'CO2 famine' and that the geologic record reveals that ice ages have occurred when CO2 was at 2000 ppm to as high as 8000 ppm. In addition, peer-reviewed studies have documented that there have been temperatures similar to the present day on Earth when carbon dioxide was up to twenty times higher than today’s levels'

Climate Depot Special Report

The level of carbon dioxide, a trace essential gas in the atmosphere that humans exhale from our mouths, has come very close to reaching the “symbolic” 400 parts per million (ppm) threshold in the atmosphere. Former Vice President Al Gore declared the 400 ppm level “A sad milestone. A call to action.” New York times reporter Justin Gillis compared trace amounts of CO2 to “a tiny bit of arsenic or cobra venom” and warned that rising CO2 means “the fate of the earth hangs in the balance.” The New Yorker Magazine declared “Everything we use that emits carbon dioxide needs to be replaced with something that doesn’t.” And a UK Guardian editorial declared “Swift political action can avert a carbon dioxide crisis.”

AGW by CO2 alarmists are equivalent to Galileo's flat earthers

The consensus was that the world was flat. Galileo committed blasphemy and said it wasn't. Religious zealots condemned him to lifelong house arrest. The same thing is happening today with CO2. Alarmist zealots have called for the jailing of those that disagree with the ludicrous idea that human produced CO2 emissions drive the climate. The toxic religiosity of the green movement is driven by globalist NGO funding and faith. There is as much evidence to justify their faith as there is to support the equally batty idea that the moon is made of cheese. But controlled media suppress information that disproves the 'evidence', consistently wrong PC climate models that form the only 'proof' that the moonbats, that includes IPCC activist scientists, desperately cling to.

Why, when the concept that a flea can move a mountain is as outrageous is the broken hypothesis maintained?
The globalists need a reason to impose a global tax to fund their private global government of corporation heads, the criminally wealthy, inbred black nobility and other psychopaths. They don't have a plan B hence vast sums are spent propagandising to embed the falsity that more essential and free plant food is bad.
When the CO2 demonisation scam collapses there will be a lot of mediocre scientists that will put their name to anything if the price is right looking for Soros types. Perhaps Monsanto could take them in, or the pharms industry.

In effect, science has been deeply politicised and like our traitor politicians, many scientists sell their souls.

Geoengineering. Believe your eyes or believe the media and Cameron lies
Geoengineering Watch Global Alert News, September 3, 2016
By Dane Wigington

With each passing day, with each passing week and month, the overturning of our former reality is unfolding. As countless individuals in our society try desperately to cling to the fading paradigm they have known, their propensity toward total denial is reaching ever more astounding levels. Others, in agencies and the media, are displaying unimaginable levels of tyranny and public betrayal as they grasp for what they falsely perceive as security by conforming to the herd mentality. In addition to the 24/7 climate engineering toxic aerosol assault, citizens in the US and elsewhere are now being sprayed with incredibly toxic organophosphates under the guise of mosquito abatement. The economic implosion continues to move in lockstep with the unfolding biosphere collapse, even Walmart is letting 7000 employees go. The US has become a war state that is simply a tool of the military industrial complex, but is this really anything new? How close is global conflict? How much longer can the biosphere function under the all out assault from countless directions? When will the apathy and denial of first world societies finally shatter? The latest addition of Global Alert News is below.

Each of us is responsible for ourselves, for our own conduct, for what we do (or don't do) toward the greater good. We must stand together with unyielding resolve to help with the most critical effort of all, to wake the sleeping masses. Make your voice heard, make every day count.
