SORRY, thanks, for your help!
SORRY, thanks, for your help! But I am not there yet! I am trailing years behind. I must first be convinced that CO2 is a green house gas, for which I have not yet seen any physical evidence. My current opinion is that CO2 absorbs in the infra red region, meaning it blocks IR, keeping it out, rather then in. (Similar to ozone blocking UV). So I say that CO2 is not a green house gas. My current theory is that global warming is (mostly) caused by just heat (caused by human activity).
sorry, but I have still not yet seen any evidence from anyone that proves to me that carbon dioxide is a green house gas.
This could make some sense to me. But I still want to see the proof. How can you be 100% sure that initially the CO2 does not cause a cooling effect (by keeing some IR out) and then subsequently a warming effect (by keeping some IR in), making the net result more or less zero? I really would like to see the experimental proof of what you say, i.e. proof that CO2 is a greenhouse gas (i.e. warming effect CO2> cooling effect caused by CO2).
It is I who said that CO2 causes some cooling. Because it absorbs IR in the IR region. Meaning it (also) blocks IR. And of course it traps it when it tries to return to space. So, the net effect is zero?
If you people think the questions are answered, fine. I don't. I am not even convinced CO2 is a contributary factor to the problem. I actually hoped to see some facts and figures. I thought someone would be able to convince me with data from actual experiments. I could not find such.
I am too old now. That is true. So I am trailing behind, with technology getting faster ahead of me. But you can do it for me? I will kiss you if you find some test results from actual experiments and tests/
Dear BC. As I said before, unless and until I am myself convinced that the problem really is CO2, I have to go with the theory that I can believe in. You don't know how much energy has gone into earth by all the fires and wars and burning and transport caused by human activity. So you cannot prove that my theory is wrong. If it is your belief that the problem is CO2, then why not tell me what experimental proof you have for that belief, other than saying: see it is there, so it must be true?
You keep approaching this problem from the same angle, I can see1) you have not done that calculation2) actual energy reaching earth by the sun is much lower then you were claiming3) what about all the atomic bombs that were exploded mostly for 'testing"how much energy was that? 3)what about all the nuclear plants, how much energy was that?etc/etc/etcYou see what the problem is? You cannot prove my theory wrong because I know that I am right, the only thing I don't know (yet)is the percentage that energies from human activities are contributing to the warming up. The thing that I am looking for is to find some data from experimental tests that would tell me how much the influence of various amounts of CO2 is on the warming up of the earth.If somehow you don't understand or you don't want to understand the importance of that information for the future of mankind, then maybe it is you who should take a hike.
