Why Global Warming/Climate Change Is a Hoax By David Roemer, Ph.D. (http://www.newevangelization.info) 1) Carbon dioxide is a trace gas in the atmosphere. 1% of the atmosphere is Argon and there is 25 times more Argon than carbon dioxide. If the sun is shining, a field of corn will use up all the carbon dioxide in 5 minutes. The corn will stop growing unless wind blows new air into the field. 2) 97% of the carbon dioxide in the atmosphere comes from human and animal respiration, outgassing from oceans in tropical areas, the decay of ground bacteria, volcanoes, and forest fires. Only 3% comes from humans burning coal, oil, and natural gas. 3) We are in the fifth ice age because the north and south poles are covered with ice sheets. This ice age started 2.58 million years ago. For 260 million years before this, the Earth was warmer. The first ice age began 2.4 billion years ago. 4) In the current ice age, there have been six periods of warmth (called interglacials) and cold (called glacials). The latest cycle was the Medieval Warm Period followed by the Little Ice Age. Humans began burning a lot of fossil fuels at the end of the Little Ice Age. The Roman Warm Period occurred 2,000 years ago. The Younger Dryas was a return to glacial conditions about 12,000 years ago. 5) At night a desert is much colder than the tropics. In the tropics, 4% of the atmosphere is water v***r, but humidity is much less in a desert. Water v***r is called a “greenhouse gas” because it absorbs the infrared radiation. 6) An example of radiation having a warming effect because of its interaction with a gas occurs in the stratosphere, which is an atmospheric layer 12 miles above the Earth’s surface. Ultraviolet radiation and solar wind interact with gas molecules causing the molecules to break up. The molecular components separate with high kinetic energies. It is the kinetic energy of molecules that determines temperature. Temperature does not increase when a molecule absorbs infrared radiation. 7) Water v***r absorbs and emits infrared radiation. Some of the emitted radiation goes into outer space and some is re-absorbed by the Earth’s surface. However, if an excited water v***r molecule collides with another molecule, there can be a conversion to kinetic energy. The energy of an infrared photon is 60 times less than the energy of an ultraviolet photon, so the warming effect of absorbing infrared photons is much less than the warming effect produced by ultraviolet photons in the stratosphere. There are many possible reasons temperatures in the tropics are lower than in a desert at night. Soil moisture accounts for 0.001 % of all the water on Earth. When water ev***rates from the soil, the soil cools and the air warms. Wind also is a factor. I don’t think scientists know how much of the warming in the tropics at night is due to water v***r’s absorption of infrared radiation. 8) Carbon dioxide also absorbs infrared radiation, as does methane. There is about 25 times more water v***r in the atmosphere at the Earth’s surface than carbon dioxide. There is 200 times more carbon dioxide than methane, but methane absorbs more wavelengths of infrared radiation than carbon dioxide. Carbon dioxide only adsorbs 16% of the infrared wavelengths produced by the Earth. Methane adsorbs much more wavelengths. 9) The conversion to heat when “greenhouse gases” absorb infrared radiation is not a linear process. If all the infrared radiation is being adsorbed by these gases, there is no warming effect caused by increasing the amount of carbon dioxide. 10) Governments in the United States have spent about 40 billion dollars subsidizing solar and wind energy to produce electricity even though solar energy is four times as expensive as fossil fuels and wind energy is twice as expensive. In Germany, because of the investment in solar and wind energy, electricity costs three times what it costs in the U.S. India and China have increased their use of fossil fuels because of all the benefits derived from inexpensive electricity. In the United States, as a result of the $40 billion expenditure, 2% of electricity is now produced by solar and wind energy. 11) Conclusion: It is obvious that the 40 billion dollars spent was a waste of money and that citizens in the U.S. were tricked into allowing governments to do this.

October 26, 2018 OP - ED VOTE BLUE IN NOVEMBER: DEFEAT THE TRUMPITE REPUBLICANS Americans should vote in the midterms to defeat Republicans in Congress because they are in effect serving as an arm of the White House and not serving the people of this country. These are some of the main things wrong about Trump and his cohorts in Congress: 1. Trump’s actions and policies are treasonous. He has acted in the interest of Russia, a hostile foreign power, as a puppet of Putin. He has failed to effectively enforce sanctions, continued to ignore Russian hacking into our midterm elections and worked against our NATO allies. He has consorted with Putin and other Russian officials in secrecy. What do the Russians have over Trump? The answer is under our nose. A forensic audit of his business and personal tax returns would prove that Russian-based investment and lending sources revived his once bankrupt business empire. There may well be crimes involved as well, such as money laundering. This isn’t conjecture, because enough information is already public. The Republican controlled Congress has stonewalled and avoids using its’ powers to investigate his finances The Russians could pull the rug on Trump’s empire, and that is why he is under their thumb. 2. The Republican regime has been making healthcare less available or affordable for people, especially as regards pre-existing conditions, which is putting sick people at risk and costing lives. We cannot let this continue. 3. Trump and the Republican majority in Congress disrespect women and women’s rights, treating women as an underclass, half of the population as they are, and holding back on issues such as equal pay, healthcare and childcare, and equal justice. Judge Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court nomination reveals how the Republican Party has crossed a “red line”, and ought to be driven to obscurity, like the Communist party, because they are anathema to the American way. The Republican Party is not the party of Lincoln or even Eisenhower; it has morphed into a cancer on The Body Politic. The comment a few talking heads have made, that the “Me Too” movement may scare boys or young men from thinking of someday seeking office or coaching or whatever, is “Poppycock”, as Ike would say. The real point is that no mother or father wants their daughters r***d or assaulted; it’s not acceptable, and the Republican tolerance of this will be their downfall. 4. Congressional Republicans, more than anyone else, are the “Enablers of illegal immigration” That is, they have for many years accepted illegal immigration as one of several ways to keep wages down on the backs of the American working class. Illegal immigration can only be curbed by enforcing laws violated by employers who hire and harbor illegals. Their policy is consistent with efforts to also suppress labor unions and fight increases in the minimum wage. Trump now rails against illegals only as a tactic to divide the electorate on racial grounds. 5. Republicans boast of their tax legislation, which does not noticeably lower income taxes for most working and middle class Americans, while Trump and his wealthy cronies will pay about one trillion dollars less in taxes at the expense of things like social security, education, healthcare, increased national debt. inflation and future tax increases including tariffs as a new form of taxation. Most of the tax benefits to wealthy people have gone to corporate buyouts, not capital improvements. 6. Now as to the economy, there is a lot of unjustified hype. Firstly, the unemployment rate does not take into account the millions of people who hold menial jobs rather than none, or who have given up looking for work, or perhaps even a little slanting by an administration which lies by the truckload. In any case worker wages are stagnant, leaving average people with a lower standard of living after taking into account inflation and rising healthcare, housing and other costs. 7. Trump calls the media “the enemy of the people” and “fake news”, threatening news media and even inciting violence against reporters, this coming from a master of deceit himself. His conduct is reminiscent of dictators LIKE STALIN, dangerous to democracy. Freedom of speech and the press is guaranteed by the First Amendment. The cowardice of the Republican-controlled Congress, afraid to rein in a would-be despot like Trump, is alarming. 8. To reference some, but not all of the other issues briefly: Trump has been increasingly running the country as a dictator, setting a bad precedent for American democracy. The Republican controlled congress has not used its’ “checks and balances” powers. Trump demands loyalty to himself rather than the Constitution, like a mobster or dictator. He is divisive and incites his base to violence; he is immoral in character; he violates the Constitution in both governing and in promoting his business interests while in office. The Republican Congress has caved in fear of offending him, like the parliaments of countries such as Russia. He is incompetent in foreign affairs and his “loose-cannon” temperament poses the danger of self-declaring war while a paralyzed Republican controlled Congress sits by and tolerates his conduct. He has alienated our allies and diminished our standing in the world community. Trump and his Republican allies pose a threat to the environment. In light of all that is at stake for our country, it is urgent for all people to vote, for not voting is to accept whatever happens, which we can already see is of severe negative consequence. VOTE BLUE FOR YOU and your future and what you will leave behind for your loved ones. Arnold Tranes
