Climate “scientists” look at Earth’s geothermal heat flux, see that it’s small (~0.1 W/m²), and then conclude geothermal can’t possibly predominantly explain Earth’s surface temperature. This is plain wrong. I came up with an illustration to demonstrate my point a while ago: This is a fictional planet. I did this on purpose to accentuate myContinue reading “Geothermal Denial”

Ozone Hole Watch
NASA provides extensive ozone data. I wanted to see what it looks like over time. The following charts describe the following: The ozone hole area is determined from total ozone satellite measurements. It is defined to be that region of ozone values below 220 Dobson Units (DU) located south of 40°S. — Link Note: 1995Continue reading “Ozone Hole Watch”
There’s some articles claiming that US deaths from all causes is lower this year than previous years. Is it true? No, it is not true. Here’s my result: Code… uscovid.sh: Run it: Note 1: As of writing this, the current year has 340 days of data. What I did was multiply the death count byContinue reading “US Deaths”
I wrote some code to generate a solar spectrum chart from official data. Thought I’d share it with you … ssi.sh: Run it: Data and image contained in ssi.csv and solar.png Enjoy 🙂 and Happy Holidays! -Zoe Update I also made a version for nanometer wavelenths rather than microns … ssi-nm.sh: Run:
Climate Scientists vs Air Force
MODTRAN is a tool developed by US Air Force and Spectral Science, Inc to model absorption in the atmosphere. A free version is available from University of Chicago here. Let’s start playing with this tool. We set all atmospheric gases and other parameters to zero. The ground temperature doesn’t change – contra the opinion ofContinue reading “Climate Scientists vs Air Force”
Scraping 2020 US Election Data
I thought this code could be useful for researchers. I wrote it a while ago, then never used it. Too busy 😦 elec.sh: Run it: Result: elec.png Enjoy 🙂 -Zoe Update 2020/12/06 County level data can be obtained with this code snippet: Run it: Contents of counties.txt is archived here.
Geothermal to the Moon!
The Earth and the Moon have been neighbors for a very long time. We should expect long term steady state heat transfer from Earth’s internal energy (without Sun) to the Moon to be equal to Earth’s geothermal heat flux. To my knowledge, no one has ever made this claim. Sound outrageous? Let’s see… According toContinue reading “Geothermal to the Moon!”
The Steel Greenhouse Ruse
Amateur scientist Willis Eschenbach developed a thought experiment to demonstrate how the greenhouse effect “works”: It’s been refuted many times before, but I’ll make it even simpler. The main claim is that the outer shell’s presence will force the inner core to warm up and radiate twice as much compared to no shell at all.Continue reading “The Steel Greenhouse Ruse”
Fourier’s Accidental Confession
Fourier is considered a direct predecessor to mainstream climatology. Mainstream climatology follows him and purposefully neglects geothermal energy in Earth’s energy budget due to the belief that it is too small. This then allows them to make the outrageous claim that it is IR-absorbing gases in the atmosphere that boosts surface temperatures to what weContinue reading “Fourier’s Accidental Confession”
COVID19 in Georgia
Today I analyze COVID19 data for my home state of Georgia. I thought it would be interesting because there is an anomaly. Let’s see the anamoly: You see it? The largest density of cases does not match the largest density of population. We would expect most cases per 100K to be in the 9th largestContinue reading “COVID19 in Georgia”
CO2 Versus Global COVID19 Response
With the global economic response to the COVID19 epidemic, we would expect global CO2 to be rising much less than other years, if the theory of man-made global warming is indeed true. I use data from NOAA to see what’s going on. The estimated daily global seasonal cycle and trend value for CO2 are determinedContinue reading “CO2 Versus Global COVID19 Response”
The Irrelevance of Geothermal Heat Flux
You’ve probably heard it before: the geothermal heat flux is so small (91.6 mW/m²) that it can be effectively ignored in Earth’s energy budget. The first part is true, the heat flux is small, but this fact is completely irrelevant. And what is relevant is popularly denied and masked as something else. I’ve already explainedContinue reading “The Irrelevance of Geothermal Heat Flux”
The Strange Case of Mimas
Mimas is a small moon of Saturn. It is most famous for being the inspiration for the Death Star in the popular movie Star Wars. But from this day it will be famous for refuting mainstream climate science. How you ask? Well … let’s examine its external energy sources: 1) Insolation. The insolaton at MimasContinue reading “The Strange Case of Mimas”
In a previous article, I examined the average moon temperature (AMT). You may have noticed that there’s been about ~3 degree K warming in the last decade. According to [Vasavada 2012], the mean equatorial temperature between 2009 and 2011 was about 213K, whereas the 2017-2018 data from UCLA and WUSTL shows that to be aboutContinue reading “Lunar Warming”
Do blankets warm you?
Believers of the Greenhouse Effect all use the same analogy to get you to believe in their junk science. The site Skeptical Science sets the standard in this article: So have climate scientists made an elementary mistake? Of course not! The skeptic is ignoring the fact that the Earth is being warmed by the sun,Continue reading “Do blankets warm you?”
This was derived from NCEP Reanalysis data, in the tradition of Measuring Geothermal … Enjoy 🙂 -Zoe Addendum geochg.sh: Run it: Windows users need imagemagick package from Cygwin.
What caused 40 years of global warming?
I’m going to ignore the typical nonsense mainstream narrative, and do this analysis in the tradition of: Measuring Geothermal – A Revolutionary Hypothesis. I will use 41 years of NCEP Reanalysis Data. Create a new file fluxchange.sh, and paste: Run it: The results are changes for years 1979 to 2019 (inclusive). The upwelling radiation fluxContinue reading “What caused 40 years of global warming?”
Dumbest Math Theory Ever
Mainstream climate scientists believe in the dumbest math theory ever devised to try and explain physical reality. It is called the Greenhouse Effect. It’s so silly and unbelievable that I don’t even want to give it the honor of calling it a scientific theory, because it is nothing but ideological mathematics that has never beenContinue reading “Dumbest Math Theory Ever”
Instructions for Windows Users
You can run all the code at this blog on Windows, rather than Linux. I will show you how. Preferred Windows is version 10. That’s the only one I’ve set up. Any Windows >7.0 should work in theory. Run Windows Command Line (<Win>+R; type “cmd” then <enter>) Zoe is your variable. Make it whatever youContinue reading “Instructions for Windows Users”
I used to be a fan of Joseph Postma before I realized he’s very stubborn and on the wrong track headed for a dead end. I hope he turns around. I highly recommend that everyone read his great series … The Fraud of the Greenhouse Effect (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9,Continue reading “Deducing Geothermal”
Two theories, one ideological, other verified
About a dozen people who have read my article, the case of two different fluxes, have dismissed my central argument by invoking a silly theory. The most famous critic, Willis Eschenbach (of WUWT fame), thus writes: Zoe, I just took a look at your page. I fear that you’ve made a mathematical mistake. The problemContinue reading “Two theories, one ideological, other verified”
Measuring Geothermal – A Revolutionary Hypothesis
I’m proposing a brand new hypothesis. Here it is: The so called greenhouse effect is nothing but an artifact of geothermal, flipped upside down. We can measure geothermal quite easily: Geothermal Emission = Upwelling Longwave Radiation – (Downwelling Shortwave Radiation – Upwelling Shortwave) + Latent Heat Flux + Sensible Heat Flux In the language ofContinue reading “Measuring Geothermal – A Revolutionary Hypothesis”
Average Moon Temperature
Answer = 200.2 K The Diviner Lunar Radiometer Experiment onboard the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) has been acquiring moon data since July 2009. A very detailed paper [Williams 2017] was written, yet nowhere does it answer the simple question: what is the average temperature of the moon? [Nikolov & Zeller 2014] intelligently guessed that theContinue reading “Average Moon Temperature”
Pressure Change and Real Standard Pressure
The standard mean sea level pressure is defined as 101.325 kPa. This is the standard used in US and International Standard Atmosphere. This value is all over the place. In reality this value was agreed upon by committee and at no time represented the true mean sea level pressure. Most certainly it does not representContinue reading “Pressure Change and Real Standard Pressure”
North and South Hemisphere
Today I will analyze some differences between the north and south hemisphere. I’ll be using NCEP‘s Long Term Mean Air Surface Temperature for 1979-2017, and NASA’s ISCCP Project Insolation data from 1983-2009. Sure the years don’t overlap, but we are using long term averages anyway and don’t care about the time trend. First we needContinue reading “North and South Hemisphere”
Precipitable Water as Temperature Proxy
Precipitable water is a measure of how high water would stack up if all the water vapor in the atmosphere would rain down, right now! It typically ranges between 22.4 and 24.2 millimeters. All the water vapor raining down would add up to about 0.9 inches. Now a little bit of logic: the amount ofContinue reading “Precipitable Water as Temperature Proxy”
Air Temperatures and Average Lapse Rate
Today we will examine 40 years (1979-2018) of air temperature data and derive the average lapse rate. First we need some tools: We will be using NCEP Reanalysis 2 data. Grab it: Create a new file air.sh with: We source the code, to allow its functions to act like command-line commands we can run inContinue reading “Air Temperatures and Average Lapse Rate”
Earth Average Surface Gravity
Happy new year, everybody 🙂 It would be interesting to know the average surface gravity of Earth. I looked over at Wikipedia: Standard Gravity and found: The standard acceleration due to gravity (or standard acceleration of free fall), sometimes abbreviated as standard gravity, usually denoted by ɡ0 or ɡn, is the nominal gravitational acceleration ofContinue reading “Earth Average Surface Gravity”
What Global Warming?
Berkeley Earth is a popular resource among climate alarmists. Today I will examine their most popular data, available here. This data is the basis of a very popular meme, the global warming color stripes. But how valid is it? Could it be a misinterpretation? First, we will need three tools: Then download & plot: LooksContinue reading “What Global Warming?”

Hot Plate, Heat Lamp, and Gases in Between
You are sitting on a hot plate (Geothermal). There is a heat lamp pointing down at you (Sun). There are gases in between the lamp and the plate. Mainstream climate scientists believe the surface temperature can only be explained by the heat lamp and the gases. Yes, it “must” be the gases that make itContinue reading “Hot Plate, Heat Lamp, and Gases in Between”

What water vapor feedback?
There’s a [stupid] idea popular among climate scientists that there is an extra warming effect from water vapor due to the fact that CO2 and water vapor have overlapping spectral bands. Is this true?
Why we should move the prime meridian!
The prime meridian is at an unsatisfactory location. Moving it should be the #1 priority in geosciences and politics.
Measuring Geothermal (1)
I downloaded a big collection of borehole data from U of Michigan for us to analyze.
The case of two different fluxes!
Today I will be investigating the difference between two different types of fluxes that elude almost every climate scientist.
I created a program to calculate the temperature, pressure, density, gravity, and molecular velocity profile for the troposphere.
How much does CO2 absorb?
I figure out what percentage of Earth’s outgoing longwave radiation is absorbed by carbon dioxide.
Why Up is not Down
Mainstream climate scientists believe there’s such a thing as Downwelling Longwave Radiation (DLWR) originating primarily from Greenhouse Gases. Does it actually exist? We’ll see…
Graphical T.O.A Insolation
In a previous post, I presented a program for generating global insolation data. In this post I kick it up a notch and do the same thing using higher resolution graphics.
NASA’s subtle diagram Fraud
NASA’s official energy budget has a subtle fraud in it. I show you where.
What is Earth’s surface emissivity?
What is Earth’s surface emissivity? Most climate scientists don’t know. I do, and so will you 🙂
Why the radiation-based Greenhouse Effect is a Fraud, Part 2
Continuing from Part 1, I further show why the mainstream Greenhouse Effect is a Fraud.
Why the radiation-based Greenhouse Effect is a Fraud, Part 1
The greenhouse effect is a fraud, and I will show you why. Let’s take a typical example of a model greenhouse effect used by climate “scientists” as found in a free online book from Harvard.
Calculating T.O.A. Insolation
I wrote a little program to help people figure out top-of-the-atmosphere insolation year-round all over the globe. You can modify it for more specific purposes. It is written mostly in awk – the best programming language for processing columnated data tables.
