Question 4. Do Scientific Laws & Principles Support the Greenhouse Effect [Quorvita}
A. Does the Greenhouse Effect Violate Laws of Thermodynamics?
The greenhouse effect hypothesis violates the second law of thermodynamics, which states that something cold cannot warm something that is hotter. The net heat transfer always moves from warm to cold. Numerous scientific studies have addressed this issue and have conclude that the greenhouse effect theory violates physics and the natural laws. The fact that the IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) failed to explain, distinguish, or even mention the second law of thermodynamics in their 9000 pages of reports, knowing that the controversy existed, is self-evident.
B. Does CO2 cause the Temperature to Rise?
The IPCC admits that a rise in ocean temperature from the sun is the reason that the level of CO2 changes. This rise in heat causes CO2 to bubble out. Hence, it is the temperature that causes the CO2 to change. This observation negates the fundamental premise of the greenhouse effect, i.e., that CO2 causes global warming.
The greenhouse gas that dominates all others is water vapor, at 30,000 ppmv. CO2 is next, at a distant 400 ppmv. The only place that CO2 concentration is greater than that of water vapor is in high elevations, such as the stratosphere where temperatures are very cold.
The atmosphere on Mars is similar to the Earth’s stratosphere. If the greenhouse effect does not work on Mars, because its atmosphere is too thin, then the same problem exists in the upper atmosphere of Earth.
ANSWER TO QUESTION 4. [Quorvita]
The answer is no. Science and the second law of thermodynamics challenge the greenhouse effect hypothesis. The IPCC failed to mention this conflict in any of their many assessment reports. The net heat transfer does not travel from cold to hot and there has been no test, observation, or physical law to suggest otherwise.
