CO2 as greenhouse gas: atmospheric scattering or thermal radiation impossibility

Latter-day atmospheric science has proposed that atmospheric carbon dioxide acts as a greenhouse gas by scattering thermal radiation in the same way that the atmosphere scatters visible light to make our blue sky. However, the actual physics of thermal radiation dynamics make this unproved argument questionable. Both atmospheric data and solid thermal radiation knowledge indicates that atmospheric CO2 cannot be a greenhouse gas, either as an absorber or as a scatterer.

Does it really matter how CO2 creates the greenhouse effect? The fact is that it does and only by restricting the release of CO2 (and other commercial greenhouse gases) can the their effects be avoided.

Excess CO2 comes mainly from burning fossil fuels — coal, oil and natural gas. Those fuels are used for everything from powering vehicles and generating electricity to manufacturing industrial chemicals. In 2016, CO2 accounted for 81 percent of the greenhouse gases emitted in the United States. Other chemicals are more effective at trapping heat in the atmosphere. But CO2 is the most abundant of the ones released by human activities. It also sticks around longest.


p.s. Hemp is a fantastic CO2 scrubber. Much more effective than trees. It may well be the most eco-friendly plant on earth.

Atmospheric Propagation and Effect
The Atmospheric Propagation and Effect department focuses on laser applications in the open atmosphere. Main topics are the use of laser radiation over long distances, such as optical energy transmission (laser power beaming, laser-based air defence) and the remote detection of pollutants and hazardous substances.

Some would deride that as a data dump - other would recognize it as decades worth of solid science.

All it takes is some Good Faith Curiosity and an interest in learning.

It also helps not to think FOX is god.
