Specialists indicate that 95% of greenhouse gases represent water vapor. Moroever, since both evaporation and condensation are low energy processes, no thermal drama will take place as a result of condensation. You’ve misinterpreted the law. Alan Siddons: Just to pin a few things down, specific heat is the amount of heat required to increase the temperature of a substance’s mass by one degree. Yes! So, your experiment, you freekin moron, did not demonstrate anything but the depth of your delusion. And because of thunderstorms much water (gas, liquid, solid) is ‘levitated’ (lifted by the principle of bouyancy) quickly from the surface to the top of the troposphere. JN: This occurs even for frozen water in a “no frost” refrigerator, unless I cover my ice cubes with a plastic bag or something, (which I often forget to do!! An oxygen molecule inside a water molecule ? And I expect you know that during hot temperatures one is urged to drink a lot of water. Nevertheless, climate change does not seize to control our planet, triggering an increase in temperatures. | #, September 5, 2019 at 7:43 pm Hi James, Being under a cloud in the daytime of course is cooler even though again the cloud is reflecting infra red back to earth. 3 for 3. What about H2Te, H2Se, H2S and H2O. You just quoted Alan Siddon: “I suspect that far too many “experts” cannot discard the GHG Theory because of ego problems.” And immediately you wrote: “I read it ten years ago also. That’s why it’s getting hot in the room. My mistake. September 5, 2019 at 8:31 pm Actually the energy of hurricanes and all storms comes from jet streams and is delivered through vortices in the form of low pressure.  The amount of water vapor in the air determines how frequently molecules will return to the surface. | #. There, the water condenses, forming the droplets that make up clouds. I ask you: Do you know the difference between the ‘Newcomen engine’ and the ‘atmosphere’? AS: For your records, here’s a synopsis of the thread that inspired my outburst. September 6, 2019 at 5:18 pm And it is viscous since it’s in a water state at room temperature. | #, Hi Jerry, Jerry: This is largely because air temperatures over land drop more in the winter than temperatures over the ocean. Oh, I know, the angels came secretly at night and let go of big hot farts in my basement ! Furthermore, another important thing needs to be taken into consideration when discussing the contribution of water vapor. Water vapor is a by-product of respiration in plants and animals. [which a interested reader can study by buying Sutcliffe’s book] These values do not follow the theory for falling spheres because the larger drops are distorted by the air flow. Alan Siddons doesn’t understand the atmosphere. On the other hand, CO2 is removed from the air by natural geological-scale processes and these take a long time to work. It is pertinent to what is being discussed here. And amazingly when heating with the warm forced air at one local location on the first floor, the temperatures of the whole house during the winter season is within a degree or two F. Warm air rises but when it does it forces the colder air of the upstairs down the staircase where is mixed with the warmer air of the first floor. Explore chemistry education resources by topic that support distance learning. | #, First, last night I sent John O’Sullivan, editor of PSI, an email suggesting he deny James McGinn access to PSI. Water vapor is about 98% of all “greenhouse” gases that are supposedly causing about twice as much heat from the cold atmosphere to the already-warmer surface as the Sun is doing with its direct radiation that reaches the surface. | #. Last time I checked, when I drop water on the floor and let it be, it will evaporate. Yes. What they don't mention is that the water vapor feedback loop actually makes temperature changes caused by CO2 even bigger. The image loop on the right shows monthly average of water vapor content with the units are given in centimeters, which is the precipitable water or equivalent amount of water that could be produced if all the water vapor in the column were to condense. And the simplest explanation is that there are water (a gas) molecules in the air. But, I suppose, the “latent heat” superstition is so pervasive that it provides you all the morale support you need to continue pretending you understand what you plainly do not understand. However, some greenhouse gases can naturally occur, entering the atmosphere as a result of human activity and natural processes, like decomposition of organic matter. So, in short, although there is no such thing as “latent heat” H2O is a significant mechanism for absorbing and redristributing simple heat. The actual balance between them is an active area of climate science research. Water vapor COOLS us by several degrees. https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/0/08/Phase_diagram_of_water.svg/700px-Phase_diagram_of_water.svg.png, September 5, 2019 at 12:55 pm Are there other materials you can research to corroborate this bold new hypothesis of water’s role in atmospheric flow and storms? So, like a moron you assumed that it turned gaseous. If CO2 isn't as powerful as water vapor, which there's already a lot of, adding a little more CO2 couldn't be that bad, right? Controlling water vapor in air is a key concern in the heating, ventilating, and air-conditioning (HVAC) industry. Don’t step on the black tiles ! However, Snyder wrote: “Based on the definition, a simple method to measure the dew point temperature involves cooling a surface until water vapor begins to condense on the surface. Sublimation is important in the preparation of certain classes of biological specimens for scanning electron microscopy. The blatant misinformation you are providing here opens the door to global warming hysteria, which doesn’t seem unreasonable in comparison to the fairy tale of latent heat. The difference is 1.5 % which is not significant over a thirty mile distance. What a miracle ! t= V/n. Understanding the the thermal elasticity of H2O involves three realizations.
