One of the many things I like to do, on occasion is argue the affirmative. That is to say, “if what you say is true, then…… ” Of course, this only works on people capable of “if/then” thought processes.
Many skeptics, including myself, demonstrate how the earth’s temps haven’t increased over the last several years. Depending upon the data set one wishes to use depends on the duration of the lack of warming.
Either way you look at it, the earth, according to the experts, say the earth hasn’t warmed. Skeptics are quick to point out this fact. Typically, alarmist lunatics counter by saying it takes energy years to work it’s way back through earth’s systems.
That may or may not be true. One easy question to ask, is how many years? One never gets an answer. But, one doesn’t need an answer.
Consider this. Many skeptics say, “It’s the sun, stupid!!!” Perhaps. Most people consider the sun as a constant source of energy. Nearly all alarmists do consider the energy from the sun as a constant. And, for today, so will I.
The sun’s energy emitted to the earth can be averaged. Sure, there are sun spots and solar activity which causes fluxuations in the amount of energy the earth receives. But, for the most part, we can say the energy from the sun to the earth is constant. It is also assumed, if the earth lacked humans, the energy re-emitted back from the earth would also be a constant. Thus, a near equilibrium exists.
So, the alarmist theory is that mankind, through his efforts, emits carbon dioxide. CO2 doesn’t alter the energy from the sun, but, rather, contains energy re-emitted from the earth. That is to say, the sun remains the same, and the earth would also, except CO2 forces the energy back down to the planet, warming the earth.
The earth, then, would be emitting more energy back out to space, except, that dastardly CO2 is intercepting the energy and sending it back down! It’s a never ending cycle of hotting!!!! We’re all going to die!!!!
Recall, the atmospheric CO2 has been significantly increasing for about 250-300 years. In other words, the earth should have been consistently increasing it’s energy output for quite some time. Remember, this energy, once it leaves the earth, travels at the speed of light.
How then, when we set yet another record for CO2 emissions, does the temperature not raise?
The earth’s emissions of energy are either constant or ever increasing under the CAGW theory. Any atmospheric CO2 increase would then result in an increase in temps. It cannot result in a decrease or maintenance of temps unless the energy emitted by the earth can fluxuate significantly lower than what it would averagely do for many years.
Please, some lunatic alarmist, please drivel about the oceans…… PLEASE!!!!!
