Continuing from Part 1, I further show why the mainstream Greenhouse Effect is a Fraud.
First we must understand that math is not physics. Physics uses math, but math is not bound by the laws of physics. In other words, you can use math to fabricate the unreal. For example: say we want to know how much electricity is needed to power a neighborhood that is being planned for development; We can easily do that. Does that mean that there is already electricity doing that? No.
But … in Eq. 7.12 and 7.13, it is already presumed that the surface output (390 W/m²) is already a given, yet in reality they completely failed to show the causality of it. What I’m trying to say is that their equations fuse the available and the needed together to produce what is observed (390 W/m²).
What is available? If the sun is considered the only input, then only 240 W/m² is available. Let’s see what that produces:
A 24-hour average input of 240 W/m² simply produces a 24-hour average output of 240 W/m²
Notice that the Earth “keeps” nothing in step 5. There is another problem with their physics. In Figure 1 of Part 1 they “kept” 390 W/m². The Stefan-Boltzmann Law is for emission and emission only. An object can’t “keep” a flux and be at a given temperature. It has to emit to be said to be at a given temperature. I should have shown a step 6 with 390 W/m² being emitted to space. Doing so would show that they emit 240+390=630 W/m² to space … from a solar input of only 240 W/m²!
It is becoming even more clear that they can’t derive the observable surface temperature directly from the sun, and so they cheat. Here is what they end up doing:
They simply treat Greenhouse Gases (GHGs) as if they are a raw source of energy providing 150 W/m² in addition to the sun’s 240 W/m² (But there is another contradiction I expose in a later article).
Now their math works! So what’s the problem? The needed became GHGs-provide-raw energy! This is a huge affirming-the-consequent fallacy.
In most popular literature on this topic it is claimed that GHGs trap solar energy, but in reality they fabricate energy from GHGs because they want to show that they are responsible for why the Earth is warmer than what the sun alone can do. In reality they can’t actually show the causation in a scientific manner, they can only describe/declare/insist on a process using a logical fallacy.
The radiation-based Greenhouse Effect is nothing but rhetoric devoid of any scientific merit.
