• Global warming deniers claim that the effect of carbon dioxide is saturated. Is such saturation even allowed in the laws of physics.?

    Best answer: I don't believe saturation is allowed in this context. The relationship between concentration and heat trapping ability of CO2 is logarithmic, meaning that it traps heat in equal increments for every doubling of concentration, somewhere around 1.8 C. So doubling the CO2 concentration from 20 to 40 ppm has the... show more
    Best answer: I don't believe saturation is allowed in this context. The relationship between concentration and heat trapping ability of CO2 is logarithmic, meaning that it traps heat in equal increments for every doubling of concentration, somewhere around 1.8 C. So doubling the CO2 concentration from 20 to 40 ppm has the same effect as an increase from 200 to 400 ppm or 400 to 800 ppm. So the effect of extra CO2 diminishes with concentration, but there will always be an effect.

    Best answer: Yes.

    Deniers and the generally scientifically illiterate can be readily identified by their ignorance of the scienitific meanings of "law", "theory", and "consensus."

    In science, consensus is driven by the evidence.

    Everything in science is about consensus. Without consensus, the scientific method does not work and scientific knowledge would stay the same without ever advancing. Gravity became part of science by scientific consensus; evolution became part of science by scientific consensus; atomic theory became part of science by scientific consensus; and quantum mechanics and general relativity became part of science by scientific consensus.

    It took 50 years from the time Alfred Wegener proposed plate tectonic theory in 1915 before it was accepted by scientific consensus - a consensus that only formed when sufficient evidence became available. That is how it works for everything in science - and that is the process that led to AGW theory.

    Forty years ago, the scientific consensus was sketical of global warming - because there was insufficient evidence. That changed as the quantity and quality of the scientific evidemce changed. The fact that Deneris are ignorant of the history of the science of AGW theory does not mean it did not happen and is not real.

  • Is the law of gravity consensus science?

    Best answer: In science, any theory that is supported is considered consensus, and any hypothesis that involves an equation is a 'law' when it is accepted. To be technical though, most people don't know this, but the official definition is 'the theory of gravity' because nothing can ever really be known, and... show more

To be technical though, most people don't know this, but the official definition is 'the theory of gravity' because nothing can ever really be known, and most people just say 'gravity' and forget that it is a theory that can one day be disputed if new evidence were to exist

    With presently available solar panel technology, energy storage technology, transmission technology, et cetera, about what fraction of US energy needs could be met just by putting solar panels on every roof that was not being used for some other significant purpose, solar shade over every large parking lot, and otherwise putting solar panels on already-disturbed areas such that we were not significantly impeding any other use of the area? Obviously, ballpark figures are fine. Not trying to say this is the absolute best way to handle the nation's energy needs, just trying to counter the usual "skeptic" specter of using up large sections of land with solar power farms or not having enough energy or whatever.

    Best answer: Really? You asked that? As a cycle the days get longer and shorter as the Earth revolves around the sun. The Earth is tilted at a 23.5° and stays that way in its never ending revolution around the sun. It's because of that angle is why the length of a day changes daily.

  • Is the shift from 'global warming' to 'climate change' caused by George W Bush?

    His pollster and messaging manager Frank Luntz in a memo said that skeptics were losing the scientific argument on global warming, and if the public perceived this they would lock in the global warmist position. So he proposed talking about 'climate change' to muddy the waters and raise confusion.
