As we have discussed, climate scientists artificially invent an atmospheric greenhouse effect by the simple expedient of artificially reducing the actual power of sunshine from its high temperature, into something else meaninglessly low. In a very significant way, climate scientists reverse the actual flow of energy from the Sun and through the Earth system, such that what are climatic cooling effects from weather in the proper direction, turns into an artificial self-heating mechanism from the same climate in the reverse direction.
A point on “climate science”: As we have already identified that mainstream climate science is based on fiction and making things up, we shouldn’t actually be doing the honor of calling it “science”, since it isn’t. (Of course, this is what all the alarm and the vilification of the beneficial plant food carbon dioxide is all based upon.) So from now on, I will try to always remember to write “climate-pseudoscience”, to distinguish the fabricated atmospheric greenhouse effect paradigm from whatever real science that might actually come out of studying the climate in reality by actual scientists.
In the climate-pseudoscience understanding of the energy flow from Sunshine, the sequence of heat generation on the planet Earth goes as thus:
- The Sun heats the Earth like a flat surface, uniformly and globally with no day & night, with a freezing cold and low power of energy (-18oC).
- The atmosphere gets heated by the surface via conductive contact and surface output radiation.
- The atmosphere then heats the surface some more even though it is colder or at the same temperature as the surface.
- The surface then heats the atmosphere some more.
- The atmosphere ends up heating the surface with twice the power of the input sunshine.
- Energy leaves the Earth at the same rate it comes in.
The most fundamental and primary understanding of thermodynamics and engineering, is that you can never get more work out of some energy than the first time that energy is used to do said work. What is the work the energy is doing in this case? And what is the energy? The energy is the light-waves coming from the Sun. The work it does is in raising the temperature, as it gets absorbed by the Earth on the surface and in the atmosphere. After that, the input energy isn’t capable of doing any higher degree of work – that’s the best you’ll get out of it.
However, climate pseudoscience ignores these rules, and creates a scheme they call the “greenhouse effect” inside the system, which allows them to arbitrarily self-amplify the temperature in order to get to the temperature that they want. They’re able to hide this fictional scheme of “over-unity” work production by ending the flow with point #6, so that it all looks okay from the outside. But of course, we now know that looks can be deceiving.
The actual flow of energy performing work through the system is this:
- The Sun heats the Earth non-uniformly over a hemisphere, at a very high level of power and energy (+49oC on average, +88oC for a very large fraction).
- The system & atmosphere reacts to this heating (heating is the work performed by the Sunshine), and produces and sustains the climate.
- Energy leaves the Earth, the same amount leaving over two hemispheres, what comes in over a single hemisphere.
The only model which represents this reality and is amenable to real-time characterization of heat flow with differential calculus is the diagram presented in the previous posts on this subject.
The point is: Why would we invent an atmospheric greenhouse effect self-heating mechanism from artificial freezing cold Sunshine, when it is perfectly apparent that the real power of Sunshine is already strong enough to heat the climate by itself? There must be a better reason why the atmospheric greenhouse effect was invented, rather than simply due to an obvious mistake which should have been correctable…
