Thankfully, the anti-science propaganda campaign surrounding man-made climate change seems to have lost some of its effect.

Are you seeing storm clouds on the horizon? Two recent studies suggest that the latest anti-science campaign is following its forerunners--the propaganda campaigns attempting to refute science that tobacco causes cancer, that CFC's caused the hole in the ozone layer, and so on—into oblivion. Global warming denial seems to have climbed to a peak in 2010, and global warming acceptance is now climbing. This bodes well for rational public policy.

You have no credibility on this issue, Tiredofit. Here's why.

The two main dimensions of credibility are competence and character.

A competent person should be able to answer the simple question Kendall has asked.

A person of high character, one who we may consider honest, seeks to reveal truth, not to express the hate inside him.

And your abusive language doesn't change that fact one bit. Nor does it seem to have any effect on the self-esteem of anybody here.

It does do one thing. It shows your character.

And that's the idea behind global warming. CO2, when added to the atmosphere, retains heat. The experiment shows this to be true.

All your talk about infrared radiation is a smokescreen. CO2 is a greenhouse gas, and the experiment demonstrates it. The thermometers show it. I don't see why it matters whether the gasses were heated by their molecules jiggling, as in a microwave over, or whether they were heated by contact with the glass. The point is they were heated, and the gas with more CO2 was heated more.

Tiredofit,

Once again. You say the infrared rays won't heat the gasses inside by causing their molecules to jiggle because they won't pass through the glass. So why does bombarding the glass container cause the temperature of the gasses inside to rise? Maybe the infrared rays heat the glass, and the gasses inside are heated by convection.

Our thermometers show that the gasses inside heat up, and the gas with more CO2 heats up more and stays warm longer.

Tired said, "infared wont penetrate glass"

He was shown to be wrong by the very blog he got his info from and of course his natural response is to insult.

Tired, I never claimed that near infared could do anything except that it could go through glass. I am sorry you got confused and thought something else.

Tired, Do you agree that CO2 has greenhouse gas behavior?

Yes or No

Don't deflect, please answer the question.

Tired, does CO2 effect how atmosphere retains heat?

Yes or No

Don't deflect and show your cowardice, answer the question.

The middle band of wavelengths, generally referred to as thermal infrared, is infrared light produced by matter around room temperature.  It is this band of infrared that cause atoms in molecules to jiggle, and jiggling atoms generate heat.  This radiation is strongly absorbed by matter, and will not pass through glass. ONE MORE TIME FOR THE REALLY STUPID.

This radiation, called near infrared, does pass through glass. A better way to look at it is to say that it is not absorbed by the glass. It’s energy is too large to excite atoms in molecules to higher vibrational states**********no heating of molecules MORON. YOU DEFEATED ME? YOU DON'T EVEN UNDERSTAND WHAT YOU POSTED, THAT'S HILARIOUS, GO BACK TO HIGHSCHOOL SCIENCE CLASS.

For crying out loud he won't answer.

He's just like that lady who is the head of the federal drug task force or whatever when asked if pot is as dangerous as other harder drugs.

She refused to answer because doing so honestly would compromise her position.

"Do you care to debate this point?"

I did...I defeated you by citing from the exact blog you got your info from.

Don't be a hater Tired just because the simple art of literacy won out over your skills in ignorance.

ONE MORE TIME FOR THE COLLOSIALY STUPID.

"...near infrared, does pass through glass."

This comes from the same blog you are getting your info from Tired. You may apologize at your convenience.

I don't think the point of the infrared heat lamps was to use them specifically for their ability to emit infrared radiation.

Myth I realize math is a challenge for you but science seems to be as well, infared wont penetrate glass, moron, try and get a clue. LOL ok have a nice evening

Copy/Paste..Cut and Run.

Post a bunch..claim a victory..then waddle off.

Well boys...I think it safe to say that he is beaten.

When acting like that becomes your modus operandi then it means you've not a leg to stand on and your whole game is nothing more than flinging mud.

Again, my work here is done, wallow in your ignorance if you like. PEACE

Oh Tiredofit understands perfectly well.

He's just flat out incapable of admitting that it is he that is wrong.

In fact I go so far to say that he may indeed believe that man has a hand in climate change but since believing that is counter to his chosen political faction he takes the position that we see.

He could care less about this issue whether its right or wrong.

He's just on here to rail against the "socialists" or whatever term he is using at this point.

His position on this issue is 110% political in nature.
