Applying Kirchoff's Law to a uniformly illuminated atmosphere layer gives the erroneous impression that greenhouse gases may be treated as transparent. That is not the case. In effect, the random optical path lengths resulting from the presence of the greenhouse gas destroys the order associated with a transparent medium and hence increases the system entropy, but does not affect the energy flow.

The arguments used to support the flat Earth are compared with those used to support CO2 based climate catastrophe. The reasoning is identical. It is the alarmists, not the skeptics who are the flat-Earthers

We consider the similarity of the reasoning behind anthropogenic global warming and flat earth theory

We examine the popular belief that clouds 'trap' heat from the surface, and propose a more credible explanation.

Just a bit of fun to the Settlers 1 tune, based on the correct theory of equilibrium atmospheric temperature distribution.

This video explains how common mis-conceptions are exploited to justify the climate catastrophe narrative

A tentative electrical theory is proposed to account for the positive temperature gradient in the stratosphere.

We consider harmonic excitation of a linear oscillator to demonstrate that the amplitude of a cyclic disturbance which has been sustained for billions of years is all but irrelevant. Dismissing the effect of Solar cycles on the Earth's temperature is based on the erroneous premise that we are dealing with a one-off event, and not a cyclic phenomenon, and proves nothing.

Apparently the trisection of the angle and squaring of the circle are impossibilities. Actually, it is more a matter of imprecise problem definition.

We revisit the mis-application of correct theory to produce junk science

Looking at the current climate science literature it appears we are dealing with the Z List of physicists.

This video addresses a minor error in the sixth presentation on atmospheric physics, which doubtless will be milked for all its worth by the alarmist fanatics, so in anticipation of this I present the correction

The alarmist claim this work has been 'debunked'. Make up your own mind. The 'debunk' is correct regarding the Second Law, as the heat source is the Sun. However, the remaining 96 pages of this paper remain valid.

The modern day equivalent of the geocentric universe is the greenhouse effect. This is aggressively defended by fair means and foul by an establishment using techniques reminiscent of the Catholic Church at the time of Galileo, thus proving that there is very little science in 'climate science'.

The derivation of the equations presented and the code used in their solution are presented in https://gvigurs.wordpress.com/2019/04/28/the-emperors-new-climate/

We now consider convection in the troposphere of an arid planet

We explain what we mean by 'average temperature' and calculate the temperature of the region of atmospheres in radiative equilibrium

Erratum: This is part 3 not part 2, as declared in the title slide. I couldn't be bothered to redo the whole video for such a minor error

In this video we consider the pressure and density variation with height

The first in the series presenting the Emperor's New Greenhouse

Erratum: The term 'q' in the equations must be preceded by the absorptivity, which according to Kirchoff's Law must equal the emissivity (epsilon in the equations). As written the equilibrium temperature appears to depend on emissivity. That is nonsense.

Idiots apparently cannot tell the difference between emissivity and reflectivity, and imagine that demonstrating the opacity of greenhouse gases somehow 'proves' the greenhouse effect. This video shows why that is garbage.

For a more complete critique of the bogus science underpinning the greenhouse effect, take a look at https://gvigurs.wordpress.com/2019/04/28/the-emperors-new-climate/

The greenhouse effect is based on the false premise that the temperature distribution in the troposphere is caused by radiative heating of the layers of atmosphere. This video shows why it contravenes the Law of Conservation of Energy

My videos are also posted on Youtube, but I suspect Google has investments in 'renewables', which may explain their reluctance to promote videos which do not support the doomsday narrative.

We account for the temperature distribution in the atmospheres of both Earth and Venus by applying the fundamental laws of thermodynamics. There is no such thing as a 'greenhouse effect'.

The ignorance of the public is exploited to promote the climate catastrophe narrative, by using analogies which are irrelevant to the physics of the atmosphere. The commentary contains two errors: The reason IR images of car windows are black is because glass is a poorer conductor of heat than steel, so the temperature drop from the inside is greater so the external surface is colder than the surrounding metal. The reason why explosions appear to block the IR is the simple fact that they do not represent equilibrium conditions.
