Fact: US in Longest 'Hurricane Drought' in Recorded History In a stroke of luck, no major hurricanes rated Category 3 or higher have struck U.S. soil during the past nine years, a new study finds. This is the country's longest "hurricane drought" in recorded history, or since 1851, the researchers said. The previous record lull lasted eight years, from 1861 to 1868, they said. http://www.livesci ence.com/50704-hur ricane-drought.htm l (7 hrs ago | post #58525)

An easy way of saying you're unable to answer the questions, probably due to lack of information. Understood. (19 hrs ago | post #149)
Nothing desperate about it, old green troll, just interested in how global land and ocean surface temperature was measured to any degree of accuracy 136 years ago? By whom? How often were readings taken? How many data collection stations existed globally? Which countries took part in the data collection? How was the data transmitted? Where and how was the data collated? I'd be specifically interested in how often readings were taken in mid oceans? (Thursday | post #143)
The response, should it come, could be very interesting, or not. (Thursday | post #7081)
How was global land and ocean surface temperature measured to any degree of accuracy 136 years ago, or even 80 years ago? (Thursday | post #141)
Stop asking tedious questions and state the science you believe explains why things are as they are? (Thursday | post #58508)
Perhaps the asker of questions without question marks could make relevant comments on the subject he claims to have knowledge of instead? No? Thought not. (Thursday | post #7076)
I'm not sure why anyone would believe energy can be added to the system by greenhouse gases, but some do. By the same token, I don't understand why some people can't or won't accept that GHG and GE are the given names for natural phenomena. < Greenhouse Effect Trapping and build-up of heat in the atmosphere (troposphere) near the Earths[sic] surface. Some of the heat flowing back toward space from the Earth's[sic] surface is absorbed by water vapor, carbon dioxide, ozone, and several other gases in the atmosphere and then reradiated back toward the Earths[sic] surface. If the atmospheric concentrations of these greenhouse gases rise, the average temperature of the lower atmosphere will gradually increase. See greenhouse gas, anthropogenic, climate, global warming.  Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Any gas that absorbs infrared radiation in the atmosphere. Greenhouse gases include, carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide, ozone, chlorofluorocarbon s, hydrochlorofluoroc arbons, hydrofluorocarbons , perfluorocarbons, sulfur hexafluoride.  http://www.epa.gov /climatechange/glo ssary.html NB: The EPA could possibly employ a better proof reader.

GREENHOUSE EFFECT is a name given to a natural process. greenhouse effect the trapping of the sun's warmth in a planet's lower atmosphere, due to the greater transparency of the atmosphere to visible radiation from the sun than to infrared radiation emitted from the planet's surfaceQUOTE]The Greenhouse Effect. If it were not for greenhouse gases trapping heat in the atmosphere, the Earth would be a very cold place.[/QUOTE]Gree nhouse Effect The greenhouse effect refers to circumstances where the short wavelengths of visible light from the sun pass through a transparent medium and are absorbed, but the longer wavelengths of the infrared re-radiation from the heated objects are unable to pass through that medium. The trapping of the long wavelength radiation leads to more heating and a higher resultant temperature. Besides the heating of an automobile by sunlight through the windshield and the namesake example of heating the greenhouse by sunlight passing through sealed, transparent windows, the greenhouse effect has been widely used to describe the trapping of excess heat by the rising concentration of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. The carbon dioxide strongly absorbs infrared and does not allow as much of it to escape into space. A major part of the efficiency of the heating of an actual greenhouse is the trapping of the air so that the energy is not lost by convection. Keeping the hot air from escaping out the top is part of the practical "greenhouse effect", but it is common usage to refer to the infrared trapping as the "greenhouse effect" in atmospheric applications where the air trapping is not applicable. http://hyperphysic s.phy-astr.gsu.edu /hbase/thermo/grnh se.html (Wednesday Aug 26 | post #7066)
