…Good News for Humanity, Part 2…
In a prior article, Dr. Happer established that doubling CO2 from 400 ppm to 800 ppm would have virtually no effect on the Earth’s temperatures.
He showed a second diagram at the Madrid press conference that demonstrated the same conclusion for Methane gas.
It should be noted that no mainstream media published this curve either.
As in the earlier article, the top curve is the theoretical heat loss from the Earth into the vacuum of space for the range of frequencies, assuming no atmosphere. This is Planck’s curve for heat loss from the Earth’s blackbody.
While the curve for CO2 was in the earlier article, the curve for CH4 (Methane) is shown here.
The sawtooth curve shows the actual heat loss through the Earth’s atmosphere for each frequency, where the percentages of CH4 (methane) are 0 ppm, (in green), 1.8 ppm (in black) and 3.6 ppm (in red).
(The other features of the curve, i.e., compound notations , etc., were explained in the earlier article.)
Once again, as in the earlier article, the green, red and black curves are highlighted by the circle, and, as can be seen, a doubling of methane has virtually no effect on heat loss from the Earth and on temperatures.
Once again this is great news for mankind.
Natural gas can continue to be used to generate the least expensive electricity and can be used to heat homes at low cost.
Animals, such as sheep and cattle, can be raised without fear of climate change.
Natural gas pipelines can be built to bring cheap natural gas to more people without fear of climate change.
Mankind can look forward to abundant supplies of natural gas for at least a thousand years.
This is truly good news for mankind.
Please forward to people on your email list. The media won’t report this good news.
