ABOUT GRAPHS AND DATA
The climate models are only a pale and inconsistent reflects of reality, that is to say, merely speculation and guess made with a computer. As a biologist I only handle observable and verifiable natural phenomena, considering only those facts that anybody can confirm observationally or empirically. Nobody can predict a natural phenomenon without considering all the variables that determine the phenomenon. There are always variables in natural processes that we have not identified; consequently, nobody is able to model nature as if the model was the real world. It does not mean that the phenomenon does not have subjacent causes, but that we do not know the microstates that are giving rise to the phenomenon.
Modelers can change any variable or variables at will (I’ve seen they even changing physics laws). For that reason, they usually compare the CO2 with a black body, when the CO2 is not more than a gray body, not very efficient to retain heat.
It has been empirically demonstrated that water is much more efficient to retain heat because it absorbs heat slowly and emits it slowly. The CO2 and the methane are gases that quickly absorb heat and quickly emit it. You can consult any book on Heat Transfer or Classic Physics to verify it.
That is the reason by which I do not handle the CO2 and other “greenhouse” gases like the starting point of “global warming”. Semantically, the concept “global warming” is pseudoscientific because it is not a “warming”, but a fluctuation in the temperature of the Earth’s atmosphere. As it goes up, it goes down also. It’s not a flat linear function.
Fluctuations of Earth’s temperature have always occurred since the planet was formed. In not very ancient times (300,000 to 50,000 years ago) the fluctuations of the temperature of the planet oscillated by10 °C; however, nowadays the fluctuations have not rose beyond 0.62 °C. It is valid if we include the fluctuation given through the Medieval Period because in the last 200 years the fluctuations have not been higher than 0.52 °C (averaged change of temperature in1998). When a scientist talk about the enormous fluctuations of the atmospheric temperatures given in ancient ages, those who wish to maintain the terror in the world get enraged because the records that contradict their truculent plots have been accepted and demonstrated through several reliable methodologies. I’ve shown here four models of the possible changes in the atmospheric temperature that are more congruent with reality than those from the IPCC. The creators of the program to obtain hypothetical models are Dr. David Archer and Jeremy Archer, of the University of Chicago. The two professionals are serious and honest scientists, and I think that they have not been influenced by politics or economical torques. You can verify their work and confirm that they fit their program as well as they could, so you could only obtain approximate results to reality. There are many exaggerations in some data introduced to the program derived from the unknown variables that have an effect on real phenomena, but we must to consider that these are merely hypothetical models that can be confronted with the results obtained through observation-experimentation and applying the Laws of Thermodynamics.
