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”

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”

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”

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”

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”

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”
