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 vapor, but humidity is much less in a desert. Water vapor 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 vapor 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 vapor 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 evaporates 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 vapor’s absorption of infrared radiation. 8) Carbon dioxide also absorbs infrared radiation, as does methane. There is about 25 times more water vapor 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.

I thought you guys should be aware of this. I am posting a direct quote from the debate. No Christian (or any other faith that prays) would tolerate this. O'Rourke is either agnostic or a good old fashion atheist.
The article on Baylor's website about the history of the Baylor bear mascot contains a grievous error of fact. The error is unfortunately repeated on a plaque at the bear enclosure. Anyone at Baylor before the 1990s can tell you that the first bear named Judge was named in honor of Abner McCall, president of Baylor 1961-1981 and subsequently Chancellor and President Emeritus until his death in 1995. McCall had served as a justice on the Texas Supreme Court and was universally known as "Judge" McCall. Any research at all will confirm this. I'll ask the Baylor Line Foundation to find you a copy of the article about the first "Judge" in its magazine archives. Your own archives would also confirm this, and the records of the Baylor Chamber of Commerce may confirm it as well. This is sloppy journalism. Please let me know that you are going to correct the information accordingly. Bette McCall Miller BU 1967 [email protected]
