Infrared Radiation and Planetary Temperatures

Technical Rating: star star star
Climate scientist Raymond Pierrehumbert explains the standard infrared radiation theory and how it determined planetary temperatures. Most serious climate skeptics agree with the basic theory, but disagree with Raymond's conjecture that the amplification by water vapour feedback is well known. Falling water vapour content in the upper atmosphere and increasing clouds can offset the effects of water vapour increase in the lower atmosphere.

The Stable Global Atmospheric Greenhouse Optical Thickness

Technical Rating: star star star
Dr. Ferenc Miskolczi calculates the atmospheric radiative flux components for the true greenhouse-gas optical thickness from the radiosonde data. In the 1948-2008 time period the global average annual optical thickness is found to be time-stationary. Simulated radiative no-feedback effects of measured actual CO2 change over the 61 years were calculated and found to be of magnitude easily detectable by the empirical data and analytical methods used. The data negate increase in CO2 in the atmosphere as a hypothetical cause for the apparently observed global warming.

The Saturated Greenhouse Effect

Technical Rating: star
The Friends of Science reviews Ferenc M. Miskolczi's theory of the greenhouse effect in semi-transparent atmospheres. He shows that the current theory does not include the required boundary conditions. The new theory shows that the atmosphere maintains a "saturated" greenhouse effect, controlled by water vapor content.

Note on the Miskolczi Theory

Technical Rating: star star
The Miskolczi theory of our atmosphere is summarized by Dr. Noor van Andel. The main relations of the radiative and non-radiative heat fluxes are derived. The physical control mechanisms that keep the atmospheric fluxes bound to these relations are described. The result is that clouds and water vapour change to keep the greenhouse effect constant.

CO2 Cannot Cause Any More "Global Warming"

Technical Rating: star
Physicist Dr. Miklos Zagoni explains Dr. Ferenc Miskolczi's saturated greenhouse effect theory. The earth maintains a maximum greenhouse effect as a result to two conditions unique to the earth; a partial cloud cover and an unlimited supply of greenhouse gases in the form of water vapour from the oceans.
