Fox News Science: Joe Bastardi Gets Carbon Dioxide Completely Wrong Edition

There are 4 comments on the Media Matters for America story from Mar 9, 2012, titled Fox News Science: Joe Bastardi Gets Carbon Dioxide Completely Wrong Edition. In it, Media Matters for America reports that:

"Completely wrong." "Simply ignorant." "Scientifically incorrect." "Utter Nonsense." "Very odd." These are words scientists have used in the past to describe the nationally televised ramblings of weather forecaster Joe Bastardi, who Fox News hosts from time to time in an apparent effort to dismantle whatever its viewers might know about physics.

"When we last saw Joe, he was breaking the news that the world's climate scientists had overlooked the first law of thermodynamics.(He was wrong.) After a thorough round of mockery in the blogosphere, we thought surely Fox would throw away Bastardi's phone number. But here he is on Fox Business this morning, declaring that carbon dioxide "literally cannot cause global warming"

The first law of thermodynamics is The Law of Conservation of Energy says that Energy CANNOT be created or destroyed and that means:

Energy In = Energy Out.....ALWAYS.

(I really liked Hansen wearing his Indiana Jones hat, but where was the Whip???)

Summary of Jimmey "lets fudge the Data" Hansen "Global Warming" science is that there is an "Energy Imbalance".

Energy In IS GREATER THAN Energy Out, for the Earth.

Hmmm, The Law of Conservation of Energy says that Energy CANNOT be created or destroyed and that means:

Energy In = Energy Out.....ALWAYS.

Funny how REAL SCIENCE always proves the AGW QUACKS wrong and Joe Bastardi ABSOLUTELY CORRECT.

The thing that annoys me about the so called energy imbalance between sunlight in and infrared out is that they claim to measure that imbalance down to a tenth or even a hundreth of a watt per square meter. In order to make that claim they have to be able to accurately measure all of the components that go into the total of outgoing radiation to that accuracy and prcision. From Trenberth's iconic Heat Budget Diagram
http://www.nar.ucar.edu/2008/ESSL/catalog/cgd...
we see the following categories:

Reflected by clouds
Reflected by aerosols
Reflected by atmospheric gases
Reflected by surface
Absorbed by the surface
Absorbed by the atmosphere
Thermals
Evaporation
Transpiration
Latent heat
Emitted by clouds
Emitted by atmosphere
Atmospheric Window
AND
Back radiation

All of them have to be assessed at an accuracy of 0.1 or 0.01 Watts per Square Meter or better to have to total be a true and accurate representation of the truth and of course it's not and it's bullshit.

Greenhouse gases, on the other hand, are expected to raise global temperatures by 1.5-4.5C by 2100.

OMG! Is that going to happen before or after the EARTH EXPLODES?

Can Earth explode as a result of Global Warming?

KABOOM!....HAHAHA....HAHAHA

Oh well, AGW "science" has been one of the major reasons that the Public no longer pays attention to the silly Alarmist Rants.

They view the silly AGW "science" right up there with the junk magazine stories of Aliens Invading Earth.

Oh wait, that was NASA affiliated scientist that released that story:

"Aliens may destroy humanity to protect other civilisations, say scientists
Rising greenhouse emissions could tip off aliens that we are a rapidly expanding threat, warns a report"
http://www.guardian.co.uk/science/2011/aug/18...

The AGW Comedy continues and but Taxpayers are still paying BILLIONS OF DOLLARS for this Cartoon AGW "science".

What a HOOT!
