Study finds black carbon implicated in global warming

Jul 29, 2010 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: R & D

Increasing the ratio of black carbon to sulfate in the atmosphere increases climate warming, suggests a study conducted by a University of Iowa professor and his colleagues and published in the July 25 issue of the journal Nature Geoscience .

Nonsense, University of Iowa IDIOT! If there was enough Carbon black, I assume you mean from Coal operating power plants you damn fool, or any other source to be reflected back by Solar I.R. radiation, before it colloidially agglomorated, because of the 0.1% to 2.8 % by volume atmospheric absolute humidity water vapor {H2O}, sticking electrostatic charged soot, carbon black particles, falling to Earth far quicker than the immense amounts of fine normal dust atmospheric particles[why sunsets look red], CHURCH going ladies in their white Sumer dresses, and surrounded by coal-fired Plants New York $2500 Chanel white suited ladies would be covered in black soot!
Back to the drawing board Iowan professor!!
What the heck is the ratio of carbon black to sulfate have to do with AGW? Most if not 100% all acid-rain SOx {H2SO3/H2SO4}} Power plant coal, and low sulfur bunker-oil emissions furnaces fueled steam turbines are neutralized in those tall stacks you see!

Feeble attempts of the self-described 93% "liberal" news media to recover from the 'disaster' of their global warming myths being discredited are taking many forms. The "carbon black" studies ignore irrefutable evidence in ice cores and related paleoclimate evidence that our globe has rewarmed after each ice age to higher temperatures than at present without "carbon black" to accelerate it, with atmospheric CO2 levels rising long after the warming began. These are a result of of natural rewarming, not its cause.

Capable, conscientious journalists would turn their attention to pointing out ways in which our economy could be accelerated so that funds are available to do the basic research needed for our global population to deal with the constant climate change that a whimsical Mother Nature dictates.

Thoughtful readers would ask editors to cease aiding and abetting the army of profiteers enriched by 'green' planning. We have more important things to discuss and the 6% approval rating of the major TV news programs indicates that these are on a track most of the public finds offensive.

If the worlds poor and downtrodden are to gain equality with the rich and privileged this will have to come through journalism that fully and fairly informs the public so that it can choose wise and honest leaders.

90,000,000 tons of CO2 emitted each day. Do you know how many Hiroshima's are equivalent to that?

The problem with the above statement is its scientific science fiction.

Only 8 percent of Americans are "dismissive" about global warming.
