Big Scary Numbers

Jerry S Rainforth

Climate-change alarmists have fun scaring people with big numbers without context. Take this article, for instance (https://www.livescience.com/planet-earth/climate-change/energy-of-25-billion-atomic-bombs-trapped-on-earth-in-just-50-years-all-because-of-global-warming). Sounds really scary that our additions to global greenhouse gases have "trapped" 25 billion atomic bombs' worth of energy (using the bomb dropped on Hiroshima as the standard) in the last 50 years. But when compared with the energy of 4.1 million hydrogen bombs per second, well, it's not so scary. (4.1 million per second = 246 million per hour = 5.904 billion per day = 2.154960 trillion per year = 107.748 trillion per 50 years, or 4.309920 billion times as many as we've "trapped" with our greenhouse gas increases.)

1  So the reason for the hotter then ever, ever summer temps this year is not due to man, like the talking heads will have us believe, but is to be blamed on an under water volcanic eruption that sent tons of moisture into the atmosphere that is keeping us toasty. Wonder how the experts at doom missed that?

3 Mike I would even dispute this "hotter than ever" claim. Most of the world was actually below normal through the spring. It's only a short period of hot weather in places like Arizona getting extremely hot. But Arizona has done that before.

Certainly we in Missouri have had nothing unusual for this time of year. Yeah it's been hot and we've had some days over a hundred, but we ALWAYS get days over a hundred in July.

As you say there has been undersea volcanism - something woefully underappreciated and not take into account by models. They are still using Gerlach et. al., a very poor study done decades ago, as their gold standard for the amount of undersea volcanoes and Gerlach woefully underestimated the number of such.

I would add we also had an El Nino year which usually does mean a very hot summer. And solar activity shot up after a year of being in the drink.

So there are pleny of reasons for a warm summer. But like CO2 dude!

I would also add that

5 The world's climate is changing rapidly and affecting life around the world. Climate change is caused by an increase in the amount of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere such as carbon dioxide (CO2) and methane (CH4) caused by human activities such as the burning of fuels for energy. Turning forest into land for use in agriculture or land development and greater consumption. The impacts of climate change are diverse and can have many economic, social and ecological implications. Here are some opinions on climate change. - Economic Impact: Climate change affects the economy in many ways. The resulting environmental degradation can be costly in industries such as agriculture, fishing and tourism. Imports of agricultural products and products affected by climate change can also drive up prices. This may result in instability in the global market. - Social and health impacts: Climate change can have impacts on human health. Air complaints are likely to become more frequent due to increasing global temperatures. This condition can cause respiratory disease. and dengue fever in primitive areas. Climate change can also affect societies and communities living in particularly affected areas. But if you play SLOTPG games at home, you won't get any disease and definitely don't risk getting any disease. - Ecological impacts: Climate change affects ecology around the world. Breaking through the coldest air stream in the morning and the expansion of global warming This results in the penetration of currents and sea surface changes, such as the melting of ice released from the sea to the surface of the sea. This could result in rising sea levels. and has an impact on the coast - Air pollution and air quality: Climate change is making air pollution more common. Bad air conditions for breathing can exacerbate respiratory diseases and other health problems such as heart disease, vascular disease, and airborne irritants. - Loss of life and affected species: Climate change affects life around the world. The loss of living organisms in the original environment, such as the reduction of forests that are home to wildlife. It can make it harder for wildlife to find food and shelter. Climate change can also affect the contact between wildlife and humans. Both in terms of disease transmission and scarcity of natural resources. Climate change is a complex problem and requires global cooperation to find solutions. To reduce greenhouse gas emissions and mitigate the effects of climate change, it is important that people around the world play a part in addressing this issue. by using renewable energy Reducing the use of energy produced by energy sources that are the catalysts of climate change. and creating policies that promote economic and social sustainability.

6 misspuy27 in the words of Joe Pesce from "My Cousin Vinny"  "everything that guys said is bullshit. Thank you."

Sorry, but there is no proof of any of what you say here. All there are is computer models that cannot predict current climate from past data.

The whole theory is predicated on the ridiculous notion that carbon dioxide gathers in the mid-level atmosphere (the upper troposphere) and acts like a blanket, holding heat and reflecting it back to Earth as long-wave radiation.

But there is a problem; there are only four molecules of carbon dioxide for every ten thousand molecules of air. And of that we've put less than one of those in the atmosphere.

You are essentially arguing that a chicken wire roof will hold the heat from your furnace in your house.

Also, the models don't even work. They have long searched for a hot spot in the tropical troposphere - as all the models say must be there. Yet they have never really found it. They are always announcing "aha!" and then turn out to be wrong. This phenomenon should stick out like a sore thumb.

There also have been n ot one but two pauses in warming, something none of the models can account for.

The argument was always the missing heat was going into the oceans. But they've not found that. The oceans are not warming as much as the models say they should.

I would ask you, what about the plantet Mars? If carbon dioxide is such a powerful greenhouse gas Mars should be far warmer (it's atmosphere in 95% co2). Mars should have a climate similar to Canada. It doesn't; it's far colder, with temperatures dropping as low as a hundred below.

And in fact the Earth has had ten times as much atmospheric co2, and it was actuallly colder at that point.

There is no evidence for this. All we can say is as far as we know (and we don't have eyes on every square inch of the Earth) the planet has had a modes 1* of warming over the last hundred and twenty years. Much of that was in the 1930's, I might add, well before the rise in atmospheric c02.

But there is a lot of money invested in this, and a lot of power on the line as well. It's a generations-long War of the Worlds scare.

7 There's no doubt i would fully rate it after i read what is the idea about this article. You did a nice job.
