Dependence of Earth’s Thermal Radiation on Five Most Abundant Greenhouse Gases

Excellent Physics Written by W. A. van Wijngaarden and W. Happer Published on June 8, 2020

The atmospheric temperatures and concentrations of Earth’s ve most important, greenhouse gases, H2O, CO2, O3, N2O and CH4 control the cloud-free, thermal radiative flux from the Earth to outer space. Over 1/3 million lines having strengths as low as 10􀀀27 cm of the HITRAN database were used to evaluate the dependence of the forcing on the gas concentrations. For a hypothetical, optically thin atmosphere, where there is negligible saturation of the absorption bands, or interference of one type of greenhouse gas with others, the per-molecule forcings are of order 10􀀀22 W for H2O, CO2, O3, N2O and CH4. For current atmospheric concentrations, the per-molecule forcings of the abundant greenhouse gases H2O and CO2 are suppressed by four orders of magnitude. The forcings of the less abundant greenhouse gases, O3, N2O and CH4, are also suppressed, but much less so. For current concentrations, the per-molecule forcings are two to three orders of magnitude greater for O3, N2O and CH4, than those of H2O or CO2. Doubling the current concentrations of CO2, N2O or CH4 increases the forcings by a few per cent. These forcing results are close to previously published values even though the calculations did not utilize either a CO2 or H2O continuum. The change in surface temperature due to CO2 doubling is estimated taking into account radiative-convective equilibrium of the atmosphere as well as water feedback for the cases of xed absolute and relative humidities as well as the eect of using a pseudoadiabatic lapse rate to model the troposphere temperature. Satellite spectral measurements at various latitudes are in excellent quantitative agreement with modelled intensities.

The Deep State Chorus


I often watch CNN and MSNBC to become better aware of the propaganda that the corporate, globalist, lying media are feeding the ignorant. The Democrats are liars, but they don’t care. They know most of their base aren’t really paying attention. Passively accepting lies from media ‘authorities’ is easier than examining the facts.

One of their thoroughly discredited canards has been the expensive “Trump/Russia collusion scandal.” It never existed. If there had been any evidence to trumpet, Robert Mueller certainly would have blown it loud and hard, but he reported nothing because there was nothing.

Yet here I was listening to Obama’s CIA director, John Brennan telling an MSNBC host that Trump’s collusion did occur and he suggested it could happen again. Brennan was one of the prime instigators of the Russia collusion lie, but instead of being tossed in Guantanamo for treason, he’s all over mass media and repeating the lie. He even said Trump was ‘dangerous to our nation.’

Nancy Pelosi, who harbors unprecedented hatred of our lawfully-elected president, also mentioned he could be colluding with Putin to sway the election in his favor. I heard her say it on MSNBC, but unfortunately I don’t have the transcript.

And of course, there’s Hillary. She instigated the Russia collusion Hoax by funding the Steele Dossier. She sticks to her lies that Putin and Trump stole the previous election and presumably the next one. She’s as crazy as an outhouse rat, but she also maintains a big influence on the Democratic Party. Hillary and her operatives—including Mueller—were involved in the Uranium One scandal. She’s the one who colluded with Russia, not Trump.

The Democrats are out of ammo. Once again we heard Biden repeat the discredited lie that Trump thinks white supremacists were ‘fine people’ when he said no such thing. Their strategy appears to be this: They will loudly repeat a chorus of lies as to potential voters, assuming those voters are not paying attention. One of those lies is Trump colluded with Russia to win an election.

Study of the Blackbody Temperature of Earth, Written first in 2017 update monthly

The purpose for this paper

This paper is not meant to be a peer-reviewed work; but it is meant to give a foundation for a more serious study of the subject matter presented here which is of determining the basis of developing a global temperature. The key is the base which what is the base temperature of the planet and, of course, it is  the solar radiation received from the sun. Therefore, the energy absorbed by the planet must equal the energy emitted by the planet and we can calculate this using the Stefan-Boltzmann Law the the result is called the blackbody temperature. The energy flux emitted by a blackbody is related to the fourth power of the body’s absolute temperature. In the case of the earth use means and averages that temperature is -18.8 degrees Celsius but wait the current temperature around 14.6 degrees Celsius today that is a difference of 33.4 degrees Celsius; where did that come from. The answer is that is the greenhouse effect. and at least 85% of that is form the water in the atmosphere making water the primary green house gas by far.

This paper has been written to show the read the basics of the science of determining the key variables that make up earth the temperature. What you will find is that the planet has been very stable over time and that its currently much cooler than it ever has been.  The following chart is developed from ice core and is onlyu one of many that show the same thing.

There are three areas of interest.

1) The amount of thermal energy that reaches the planet from the sun.
2) The amount of thermal energy that is initially absorbed by the planet.
3) The process on the planet that ‘temporarily’ holds thermal energy on the planet.

In this paper I will give a frame work for determining all three aspects.

Part One, the blackbody temperature of the planet
Part Two, the planetary greenhouse effect
Part Three, the probable range of temperatures on the planet

Veterans Day Ceremony and Unveiling of World War 1 Monument November 11, 2018

This was filmed on Veterans Day November 11, 2018 that was the 100th anniversary of the end of the World War (later to be World War I)  but at that time was thought to be the war to end all wars. This event was to celebrate both the 100th anniversary of the end of that war and the unveiling of the monument that was placed in the Nordonia Hills Veterans Memorial Park.  This park was was started by American Legion Post 801 where I am the Commander and the master of ceremony for the event.  The Veterans of Foreign Wars post 6768 provided the 21 gun salute.

This park in an ongoing project which is only about 50% done as of March 2019. If you might like to help us finish this project visit our website at We have just created a foundation to handle the completion of the park and expect the paper work will be finish by mid year (things are delayed because of the recent government shut down).

Product Review on PC Matic

While watching Fox News a while back I started seeing ads for PC Matic now and then and since I was not happy with the existing system I had and the subscription was over in December 2018 I decided to check out PC Matic in November.  I found a lot of good reviews and the price was right so I decided to make the switch.  Just for reference I have been on PC’s since  the introduction of the IBM PC AT back in the early 80’s way before windows when everything was command line.  So I have used over the years just about every protection package that there was.  PC Matic was the easiest to install by far, there was no system I have ever used that was as easy to install as PC Matic’s product lines, and the service they provide is top of the line!

Thoughts from the book Scorpion Down

This post is based on information found in the book Scorpion Down written by Ed Offley and published in 2007. The book is based on Ed’s work conducted over almost a quarter century digging into government records and interviewing former navy NCO’s and Officers at all levels. He also intervened may others including former soviet military. Almost the entire book is fact and the parts that are not are hard to dispute because they are based on the over welling number of facts presented.

This paper is not about the Russian’s sinking the Scorpion with a torpedo on May 27, 1968 but of the revelations that came out of all that work of Offley that relate to finding that is what happened. Although he refers to Vietnam in the book his focus is the cover up of what happened to the Scorpion and why it was covered up so tightly. However I think it goes much deeper and this story relates indirectly to the conflict in Vietnam and why it took so long to get out.

Key facts:

  • Sometime likely as early as 1965 but for sure no later than early 1967 navy Chief Warrant Officer John Walker begins selling classified information to the Soviets, including radio cipher cards.
  • January 23 1968 The Seizure of the USS Pueblo by North Korean Forces including the INTACT KW-7, KLB-47, KWR-37 AND a KLB-47 encryption devices.
  • March 8, 1968 Soviet diesel-electric submarine K-129 a Project 629 strategic ballistic missile submarine is lost in the pacific.
  • May 27 1968 the sinking of the SSN Scorpion by Russian torpedo
  • May 20 1985 John Walker arrested and his activities of his spy ring uncovered over the next several years
  • December 26, 1991 after the collapse of the USSR some but not all of information related to all of the above become available from Russian and US sources.

Obviously the story starts with Walker who in his position in the navy’s Atlantic Submarine Force Headquarters message center who had access to radio cipher card which were used with the devices used to communicate with ships at sea including submarines. During this period the US Navy submarines and the Soviet Navy submarines were playing cat and mouse games with each other which included underwater maneuvering which in many cases caused collisions between the two subs. This is described in detail in the book.

It is very likely that the Soviets had the Koreans capture the Pueblo to get the encryption devices that were on board and we do know that within a few weeks of being captured those devices were in Russia.  The US military was not that worried about the loos since without the radio cipher cards they would be of only marginal use to the Russians. Had the navy know about Walker they would have realized how wrong they were since Walker had been supplying the Russians with the cards for years. But since they didn’t know the rest followed.

The sinking of the K-129 was probably the result of an encounter with a US submarine since the US knew where it went down and the Russians didn’t. The US CIA attempted to recover the K-129 from 16,000 feet down and did get part of it. The effort to recover the sub was named Project Azorian and it was partially successful. The Russians probably knew of the reason for the sinking because they had the radio cipher cards and the matching devices.

Two months later the Scorpion is torpedoed and sunk probably in retaliation for the Russian loss of the K-129. The US knew it was a torpedo since they had hydrophone readings that proved it. Offley interviewed an Ocean Systems Technician (analyst) that saw the actual Top Secret Sound Surveillance System (Sosus) tape in training and it clearly showed an underwater dog fight between the Scorpion and a soviet Echo-II nuclear submarine including the torpedo trace as it tracked the Scorpion and the hit on her that sank her. There is some evidence that the Scorpion also fired a torpedo and the Soviet sub was hit but didn’t sink. There are pictures and discerptions of an Echo-II sub being repaired and towed back to Russia in the area of the dog fight.

Now if you are interested in the story read the book it is worth reading. But my point to writing this is that since the Soviets had the encryption devices and the radio cipher cards during the period from just after TET in Vietnam through the end of that conflict and the Russians were the primary supports of the North Vietnamese — did the Russians keep the North Vietnamese informed of US activities such that the Vietnamese knew how badly we wanted out and that they had nothing to lose by stalling as long as they could? For the Soviets could intercept and decode all messages sent on the devices that they had captured on the Pueblo.

Book Review, Confronting the Deception

Confronting the Deception is a book written by By Tabitha Korol. I have known Tabitha for many years now and she has been a prolific writer on subjects of national importance, the US Constitution, Judeo-Christian ethics and the dangers of radical Islam. Her work is detailed and accurate and is mostly short and to the point essays and I will add for full disclosure that I post many of her essays on my blog under her By Line.

I have just finished reading her book, Confronting the Deception and found it a very thorough and detailed analysis of the march of Islam into Western Civilization and how we appear to be incapable of seeing the dangers of trying to assimilate a culture that does not want to assimilate into the belief structures that have been developed and debugged over the past 5,000 years in Europe and the Americas. Although many today are spoiled because of the great political system we have, they have lost the historical perception of how hard it was to get to where we are now. The Social Justice Warriors (SJW) today only see past wrongs and conclude the present is therefore unjust; this is a very dangerous view and civilizations have fallen because of this view in the past.

Tabitha has 90 of her essays broken down into three sections: Part One Islam, Part Two: Academia, Part Three: Media, and Part Four: Conclusion, generally running from the fall of 2011 to early 2018. In these 90 essays she develops the argument that there is a distortion of the subject within in each of the three categories, showing how the truth is distorted by the JSW movement and political correctness. Her work is well documented and sources appropriately footnoted with 822 listed in her book.

This is a serious academic study and I highly recommend it for anyone with an open mind that wants to study the subject of merging the Islamic belief system into the Judeo-Christian ethics that were used to develop our present political systems, in particular, that which we have in The United States.

I have not studied Islam to the degree that Tabitha has, but I have read extensively on the subject of Moral Philosophy and it is my opinion that Judeo-Christian ethics and Islamic ethics are not compatible. If you read her book Confronting the Deception you will be given ample evidence that that statement is, in fact, true.

Confronting the Deception, Inflamed by 9/11, Fired Up By Eight Bad Years, was written and published by Tabitha Korol in May 2018, Lexington, KY with the ISBN 978-1-986925-50-1

Move Review 12 Strong

In the wake of Sept. 11, Capt. Mitch Nelson (really was Captain Mark Nutsch) leads a U.S. Special Forces team ODA 595 into Afghanistan for an extremely dangerous mission. Once there, the soldiers develop an uneasy partnership with the Northern Alliance to take down the Taliban and its al-Qaida allies. Outgunned and outnumbered, Nelson and his team do what needs to be done there were, after all American Green Berets so how could they lose.
As a former Green Beret from way back in the day and who served in Vietnam as a A team XO I can tell you that a movie is a movie: But this team didn’t need much glamor added. What they actually did no one else but a Green Beret could have done.  When you are in hostile territory supporting local militias and can barely speak the language and then have to lead them in battle on a horse you have to be crazy! But then we were Green Berets.
Captain Mitch Nelson actually did what the move showed and there is now a statue in NYC of a Green Beret with an M4 with the M203 grenade launder on horse back.  The Statue was written up in our Special Forces Association magazine  the winter 2011 issue of the The Drop a couple of years after the book,  Horse Soldiers, the movie was taken from came out. I was in combat and from my experiences the move came a good feel for the way it really is. I recommend this movie if you want to feel what it is like to be on your own in a hard place.
OH I must add that the Air Force B-52’s helped some!

Book Review Sovereign Duty

Sovereign duty is a book on the U.S. Constitution written and published by by KrisAnne Hall, J.D. in 2014 and edited by Steve Andrews. The book can be found on KrisAnne’s website Liberty First. From the Introduction of this book we have …

The gift of Liberty was purchased for us with great sacrifice. The men and women at our founding understood that Liberty is a gift from Goad and that all Gods’ gifts are worth our every effort.  John Adams, in a letter to his wife Abigail in 1777, reminds us of the charge we have to ensure that the gift of Liberty is not squandered.

“Posterity! you will never know how much it cost the present generation to preserve your freedom! I hope you will make a good use of it. If you do not, i shall repent in Heaven that I ever took half the pains to preserve it.”

The book is written in three parts; Part One – More Lenient Measure, Part Two – Ultimate Solutions and Part Three – Hope for the Future. In this book KirsAnne relates to us the meaning of freedom and what it means to us and how we, in out present ignorance, do not understand how our freedom is being taken away from us.  A key part of this work which we are not taught today is that the American States are Sovereign and that they created the federal government by compact — in short the States made the to protect them from outside threats and when they did that they put limits on their power. What this means is that the Federal Government that we knows is not or does not hold the Sovereign which means they have no legal authority to make laws outside the limits imposed on them.

Think of it this way if you make a contract with someone to do a task for you — what would you think of that party then started doing things that were not in that contract like removing all you funds from your bank account.  Absurd, of course, but since the Federal Government is nothing more than an an entity created by the States how can it then dictate to those that created it what they can or can not do?

I highly recommend that anyone that is interested in the Constitution and Freedom read the book.
