Falsification Of The Atmospheric CO2 Greenhouse Effects Within The Frame Of Physics
The atmospheric greenhouse effect, an idea that authors trace back to the
traditional works of Fourier 1824, Tyndall 1861, and Arrhenius 1896, and which
is still supported in global climatology, essentially describes a fictitious
mechanism, in which a planetary atmosphere acts as a heat pump driven by an
environment that is radiatively interacting with but radiatively equilibrated
to the atmospheric system. According to the second law of thermodynamics such a
planetary machine can never exist.
Nevertheless, in almost all texts of global
climatology and in a widespread secondary literature it is taken for granted
that such mechanism is real and stands on a firm scientific foundation. In this
paper the popular conjecture is analyzed and the underlying physical principles
are clarified. By showing that (a) there are no common physical laws between
the warming phenomenon in glass houses and the fictitious atmospheric
greenhouse effects, (b) there are no calculations to determine an average
surface temperature of a planet, (c) the frequently mentioned difference of 33
degrees Celsius is a meaningless number calculated wrongly, (d) the formulas of
cavity radiation are used inappropriately, (e) the assumption of a radiative
balance is unphysical, (f) thermal conductivity and friction must not be set to
zero, the atmospheric greenhouse conjecture is falsified.
