When I first became serious about creating my own blog, AGW (Anthropogenic Global Warming), was the top priority topic that inspired me. It has remained high on the list but several other topics now compete for space.
This post arises because I just took the time to review my own page “Carbon Attack” and the primary information source which mainly convinced me that I was on the correct ‘side’ scientifically re-inforced my views and gave rise to the thought “this needs to be re-published”
So I present the source paper, edited by James A Peden, Middleborough Community Network, already to be found as ‘An Educational Primer’ (‘Carbon Attack’), for readers to discover or be reminded that the AGW “denialist” science remains alive and well.
Debunkers are welcome to politely comment.
We decided to publish the results of our counter-exploration on the internet – but in a somewhat uniquely different fashion. Knowing that most folks aren’t geeks, and may have little understanding of science or math, we’re going to attempt to teach some of the essential physics and such as we go along. Readers with little or no mathematical or scientific training may find it challenging, but if you have a general understanding of introductory college or even solid high school level chemistry or physics, you should have no problem in following this amazing tale. The brighter readers, even without a science background, should be able to follow, as well. Smart folks learn faster than most.
What follows is a tale gleaned from many sources over what turned out to be an unreasonably long period of time. We’ll be first examining a “worst case” scenario, using very simple math at first, in order to arrive in a ballpark that will tell us if we need to go further and pull out long strings of complicated equations, which we don’t want to have to resort to because we’re writing for the average layman who is not a rocket scientist. This is a valid scientific method despite its apparent simplicity, for if one can first determine that a person does not own a motorcycle, then you don’t have to spend a lot of time calculating how likely he is to crash while riding it. Reducing it to the simplest of terms for the average person to understand was a daunting task. Below is an example of what “real” Climate Scientists have to deal with on a daily basis. Is it any wonder that the most popular majors in college are liberal arts?
See something missing? Look at the “official” list of “greenhouse gases” below, as offered by our boy geniuses on the UN IPCC. Golly, it appears that Water Vapor isn’t among the list – the UN IPCC says its role is “not well understood”, even though it is responsible for about 95% of the “greenhouse effect. Using their logic, we could argue that our human population is all-male – because females are “not well understood” – and thus it is proper to remove any mention of them in our list of genders on the planet. Also note that only “anthropogenic” sources are listed – no mention of the minor fact that the earth itself is the major contributor of CO2. Hey, natural stuff doesn’t count ( when you’re trying to create panic.)
Don’t you sense just a tiny bit of a con job?
