Great informative article, as you mentioned Judith Curry has some great information on her website and her book is fantastic

Indeed, she has had the courage to speak out and set the tone.

Earth is cooler with the atmosphere, water vapor, 30% albedo not warmer.

Ubiquitous GHE heat balance graphics use bad math& badder physics.

The kinetic heat transfer modes of the contiguous atmospheric molecules render the “extra” GHE LWIR energy of a BB surface impossible.

Consensus science has a well documented history of being wrong & abusing those who dared to challenge it.

GHE & CAGW are wrong so alarmists resort to fear mongering, lies, lawsuits, censorship & violence.

288 K w GHE – 255 K wo GHE = 33 C cooler, -18 C, Earth.

Just flat wrong.

YouTube: Greenhouse Effect Theory Goes Kerbluey

GHE balance calculated 396 up/333 “back”/2nd net 63 unreal perpetual “extra” energy loop.

Just flat wrong.

Earth radiating 396 W/m^2 LWIR as a 16 C BB.

Just flat wrong.

More albedo and the Earth cools.

Less albedo and the Earth warms.

No albedo and the Earth becomes much like the Moon, barren, i.e. no water, 400 K lit side, 100 K dark.

Geoengineers know this, why don’t they also admit it violates the frozen ice ball of GHE theory?



Average solar constant of 1,364 W/m^2 arrives at the top of the atmosphere.

Divide by 4 to average this discular area over a spherical area.

(Sphere of r has 4 times the area as a disc of r. This is Fourier’s model which even Pierrehumbert says is no good.)


Apply 30% albedo.

341*.7=238.7 (239)

Deduct 78 absorbed in atmosphere.

Net/net of 161 arrives at surface.

Per LoT 1 161 is ALL!! that can leave.

0.9 ground + 17 sensible + 80 latent + 1st 63 LWIR (by remaining difference) and balance is closed!!!!

(1st 63 LWIR is MIA??? Where did it go?? Did TFK palm it like a magic act??)

Where does this extra 396 upwelling come from??

It is the theoretical LWIR from a S-B BB calculation at 16 C, 289 K, that fills the denominator of the emissivity ratio, i.e. 63/396=0.16.

It is not real, it is “extra”, it violates LoT 1.

The 396 upwelling “measurement”/333 “back” cold to warm/a 2nd 63 LWIR GHE loop violates LoT 1 & 2.

Remove the 396/333/63 GHE loop from the graphic and the balance still holds.

Those who claim to measure 400 +/- W/m^2 upwelling from the surface are applying an incorrect emissivity.

This graphic and all of its clones are trash.

The kinetic heat transfer processes of the contiguous atmospheric molecules render a surface BB impossible.

Energy leaving any thermal system = Conduction + Convection + Advection (wind) + Latent (water condensation and evaporation) + Radiation = 100 %

63/(17+80+63) = 0.16

A BB only exists in a vacuum as I demonstrate by experiment.

There is no GHE and no CO2 driven CAGW.
