NASA states the current density of CO2 is 435 parts per million and that mankind accounts for about 2% of total emissions. Thus, humans account for about 1 particle in 115,000. Is the whole premise of climate change without foundation in physics?

    Sorry, but atmospheric CO2 concentration has no effect on surface temperatures, and is not a magic control knob for climate. Whether the current number is 400, 800, even 1200, the climate will not change because of it. But it’s what plants breathe, and they will flourish as they get more. Already the Sahara Desert is greening, and the sick attempts to “blame” this “misfortune” on global warming are ridiculous, cart before horse.

    As to physics, all along co-called climate science (a field for physics flunk-outs) ignores the basic laws of thermodynamics, which state that a cooler body like the atmosphere can never warm a warmer body like the Earth’s surface, and no body like the Earth as a whole can warm itself with its own heat. CO2 is part of the atmosphere, which cools the surface, taking away heat energy deposited by the Sun mainly via convection, and venting it into the infinite cold sink of outer space. Once it leaves the surface, it will never return, try lying on your back outdoors and smoking a cigarette. If any more heat from the surface is radiated as IR, and CO2 absorbs it on the way up, that just cools the surface more. Like when smoke from a chimney takes heat from the cooking pot to space, the heat can never come back to cook the meal a second time. That’s why the entire edifice of greenhouse warming theory is a house of cards, and the attempts to strain at gnats and erect a global avg. temp via computers and pretend to detect a tiny warming trend over decades are of no interest to anybody but climate alarmists, who jump to predict Armageddon in the far future to scare people and extort money from them. I don’t believe any fortune teller, do you?
