Sixty Years Of 0.0003 Mole Fraction CO2 Blocking Convection In The Atmosphere

Wednesday 6 May 1953

“The carbon dioxide in the air acts in the same manner   as the glass in a greenhouse,” Dr. Plass said.

    The IPCC has released the pilot for their latest Sit Com

    Fantastic use of evil looking clouds, scary music and the coup de grace, a fine English accent in the voice over.

    The only problem is it was produced by an obviously racist film production company.

    Not a brown or black face in the lot. Using the Al Sharpton/MSNBC racism scale, Snoball is about a 12 out of 10.

    What a ridiculous statement and ignorant idea. Glass is not a gas. Gases are not solids. Our atmosphere has virtually no resemblance to a greenhouse, unless that greenhouse has no roof.

    1 in 20,000 parts of air, changes from “something” to CO2, and that is our new greenhouse that is screwing up our weather????

    Oh I get it now, the glass lets the sunlight in and traps all the cold air from leaving the planet! /src

    Actually, It was known 100 years ago that all the frequencies of IR rays that could be absorbed by CO2 were being absorbed, thus, it was thought that adding CO2 would make no difference.
    However, that was before quantum mechanics and back radiation was understood.
    The end result should be, but as been shown not to be, is more H20 vapor. (higher humidity) in the atmosphere. (A feedback from the CO2) On a cloudy night it will stay warmer due to the greenhouse effect of the H20–which is by far the largest greenhouse gas.
    That is why in the dessert where the amount of H20 in the air is so low, it cools off a great deal at night. In Colorado summers, as Steve knows, air conditioning is rarely needed because the humidity is low, where as here in MN, it can be unbearable in the summer.
    However, I do not have pot smoke drifting into my house.
