Falsiﬁcation Of The Atmospheric CO2 Greenhouse Eﬀects Within The Frame Of Physics
“The atmospheric greenhouse eﬀect, an idea that many authors trace back to the traditional works of Fourier (1824), Tyndall (1861), and Arrhenius (1896), and which is still supported in global climatology, essentially describes a ﬁctitious mechanism, in which a planetary atmosphere acts as a heat pump driven by an environment that is radiatively interacting with but radiatively equilibrated to the atmospheric system. According to the second law of thermodynamics such a planetary machine can never exist. Nevertheless, in almost all texts of global climatology and in a widespread secondary literature it is taken for granted that such mechanism is real and stands on a ﬁrm scientific foundation.
In this paper the popular conjecture is analyzed and the underlying physical principles are clariﬁed. By showing that (a) there are no common physical laws between the warming phenomenon in glass houses and the ﬁctitious atmospheric green house eﬀects, (b) there are no calculations to determine an average surface temperature of a planet, (c) the frequently mentioned diﬀerence of 33 ◦C is a meaningless number calculated wrongly, (d) the formulas of cavity radiation are used inappropriately, (e) the assumption of a radiative balance is unphysical, (f) thermal conductivity and friction must not be set to zero, the atmospheric greenhouse conjecture is falsiﬁed ..” https://roaldjlarsen.wordpress.com/2014/09/04/falsi%EF%AC%81cation-of-the-atmospheric-co2-greenhouse-e%EF%AC%80ects-within-the-frame-of-physics/
The steep temperature fall by altitude of the first 10 km. makes “back radiation” impossible. Temperature increase above 10 km. is irrelevant because of, for example, the distance between molecules (lack of mass) and pressure.
Downwelling Longwave Radiation DLR: Physical Reality or Man-Made Invention?
- The Down-welling Long-wave Radiation (DLR) flux (W.m-2) is defined as the thermal irradiance reaching the surface in the thermal infrared spectrum (4 – 100 µm). It is determined by the radiation that originates from a shallow layer close to the surface, about one third being emitted by the lowest 10 meters and 80% by the 500-meter layer.
- The DLR is derived from several sensors (METEOSAT, MSG) using various approaches, in the framework of the project
- Down-welling Longwave Radiation (DLR) Flux is one of the most important components of the surface energy balance over land and may be defined as the thermal irradiance reaching the surface in the thermal infrared spectrum (4-100μm).
- DLR is directly related to the greenhouse effect and its monitoring has an important role in climate change studies (Philipona et al., 2001). Other applications include meteorology (land applications) and oceanography (air-sea-ice interaction studies).
- DLR is a particularly difficult parameter to retrieve since satellites cannot directly measure it.
- However Radiative Transfer Models (RTM) may be used to estimate DLR from atmospheric profiles (temperature and humidity).
- the more fictional
- the more difficult to measure
- the bigger institute.
And because there’s no warming caused by CO2 ..
