Is Western Society Doomed?

It is becoming increasingly clear that in western society the inmates are running the asylum.  The idiot elite that holds power in most western nations  have demonstrated their insanity by accepting the outright lie that the essential atmospheric gas  carbon dioxide is a undesirable pollutant that needs to be regulated.

The scam begun by the crooked Enron corporation in the 1990’s falsely claims that very slight increases in CO2 would substantially raise air temperatures.   Enron, and its successors, hoped to profit from trading  carbon  credits like it had profited from trading credits in  sulfur dioxide, a byproduct of coal combustion.

The scientific fact is air temperatures would rise substantially if atmospheric  CO2  were to decline to a point  insufficient to  support plant life.    Areas of bare ground are significantly hotter than comparably located plant  covered ground because bare ground converts the solar radiation to heat.

CO2 is essential to functioning of the biosphere.  Plants store  solar radiation  by converting atmospheric CO2 to complex carbon molecules instead of converting it to heat.  The energy is stored in the form of the electron bonds that hold the molecules together.  Plants also reflect solar radiation back into space, further reducing solar heating.

Those who talk about global warming have failed to provide any evidence of significant temperature change.  They claim (depending on the source) only about a 0.5 – 0.7 C increase in temperature which is only a 0.23% change [Note: per cent changes are calculated using the Kelvin scale because of the arbitrary zero point of the Celsius scale – the only thing you can have less than nothing of is money.]

Such a small change could easily be the result of changes in equipment or the characteristics of measuring sites.

The claim about CO2 causing warming by trapping IR ignores the fact that physicist  R. W. Wood demonstrated in a 1909 experiment that trapping IR did not heat greenhouses as many in the 19th Century had believed and thus the process could not heat the atmosphere either.

Those who talk of magical greenhouse gases have no understanding of the complexity of earth’s energy system.

Earth gets virtually all of its heat from the sun and changes in heating are most likely caused by variations in solar output than human activity.  If human activity is affecting temperature the most likely mechanism would be the heat generated by human activity or changes in the thermal characteristics of the landscape.

Except in tropical areas the human body is hotter than the air most of the time.   Human activities such as cooking and operation of mechanical devices generates additional heat.   Pavement produces more heat than plant covered areas.

Any Western leaders who think they can benefit from the adverse economic consequences  of  restrictions on CO2 emissions should be taken to the Happy Home by those nice young men in their clean white coats.

Western leaders who think an economic calamity can benefit them are living in the wrong century.  Any economic collapse in the West   would speed up the process of shifting the economic center of gravity from the West to Asia.  China is already benefiting from the West’s economic mistakes and is moving toward controlling the American economy by buying American assets and becoming the creditor for its government.

The CO2 cycle is the basis of carbon based biological life. Plants are carbon structures and CO2 provides the carbon they need.   Carbon is the second most common element in the human body.  Humans and other animals get their energy from the complex carbon compounds plants produce.  For example, each molecule of table sugar contains  12 carbon atoms as well as the equivalent of 11 water molecules.

Plants are the original  solar energy collectors. The ability of plants to grow depends upon the available sunlight and the amount of CO2 in the air.

The global warming crowd claims that the atmosphere has too much CO2, but fast growing young plants benefit from higher concentrations .  Some greenhouses use twice the concentration of CO2 to encourage faster, sturdier growth, in young plants.

Plants use CO2 to produce food for animals which return part of the CO2 to the atmosphere for plants to reuse.  Unfortunately, humans don’t return all plant carbon to the environment.  Humans use  plant carbon for building materials, clothing and long lasting paper products such as books.  Humans also put carbon containing food materials along with other carbon materials into landfills where it is unavailable for plants.

If it weren’t for the combustion of carbon containing fossil fuels we might already be facing a shortage of atmospheric CO2 that could significantly reduce food production.

Production of biofuels depends upon ample supplies of CO2.  The most productive biofuel plants would  benefit from  higher concentrations of CO2 because more carbon would be available for conversion to fuel.

CO2 provides the best way to return carbon to the environment for plants to reuse. Animals exhale CO2 as their bodies use carbon molecules  for energy.   The wind moves it from where it is produced to where plants are growing.

The CO2 molecule is one of the simplest carbon molecules and is easy for plants to take apart for construction of complex molecules.  The cell is a microscopic factory.  Its genes are programmed to process CO2 into other molecules.   Taking carbon from the air is more efficient for plants because the carbon is available where it is needed.

Contrary to the lies of Gore and others,  increasing  the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere cannot increase temperatures.  Niels Bohr disproved the claim that the atmosphere was heated by absorbing infrared radiation (IR) with research that indicated the process of absorbing specific wavelengths of light changed the energy state of the electrons in gas molecules instead of increasing their temperature.  Physicist R. W. Wood demonstrated in a 1909 experiment that trapping IR did not heat greenhouses as many in the 19th Century had believed and thus the process could not heat the atmosphere either.

It would be easier to make a case that increasing the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere would reduce temperatures.  Plants use CO2 to store solar energy in the form of chemical fonds of carbon molecules rather than converting it into heat.   Plant covered areas do not become as hot as nearby  areas that lack plant cover.  Bare ground converts solar radiation to heat.

Reducing CO2 would reduce the amount of radiation  stored as  chemical bonds allowing more of the  radiation to be converted to heat.

Increasing the availability of CO2 means that plants can store more solar energy than is possible with current levels of  CO2.  Storing  more solar energy would reduce the amount of solar energy converted to heat.
