|Umm CO2 doesn't trap heat.|
Shit, Joe's not even flunking 20th century chemistry here, he's flunking Late-19th century chemistry.
Wow, devastating. CO2 does not trap the heat. IR makes it vibrate and unless all of the CO2 is pointing the right way such that the vibration sends the re-radiated heat back to earth there isn't any trapping. There isn't even enough in the atmosphere to trap the heat.
Christ but you're a dumbfuck.
|Scientists witness carbon dioxide trapping heat in air for first time|
Scientists have witnessed carbon dioxide trapping heat in the atmosphere above the United States, showing human-made climate change 'in the wild' for the first time.
A new study in the journal Nature demonstrates in real-time field measurements what scientists already knew from basic physics, lab tests, numerous simulations, temperature records and dozens of other climatic indicators.
They say it confirms the science of climate change and the amount of heat-trapping previously blamed on carbon dioxide
|This graph show carbon dioxide’s increasing greenhouse effect at a research facility in Oklahoma. As the atmospheric concentration of CO2 (blue) increased from 2000 to the end of 2010, so did surface radiative forcing due to CO2 (orange), and both quantities have upward trends. This means the Earth absorbed more energy from solar radiation than it emitted as heat back to space. The seasonal fluctuations are caused by plant-based photosynthetic activity|
