An extensive study by Professor Nasif Nahle on the issue of atmospheric back-radiation allegedly making the earth warmer than it should be. Some randomly selected text:
Through comparing the databases on solar particles which develop cracks in the Earth’s magnetic field with my databases on thermal radiation emitted downwards by the atmosphere, it is highly possible that the thermal radiation which apparently is emitted downwards by the atmosphere be actually thermal radiation from solar plasma which would be entering through breakdowns in the magnetic field of Earth.
Solar emissions of longwave thermal radiation have an effect on the content of thermal energy of the atmosphere, which clearly is acting more like a coolant than like a warmer of the surface.
Clouds have an effect of warming on the atmosphere, and an effect of cooling on the surface and low troposphere, as it is shown by green (T of soil of control) and red (T of shielded soil) lines and by a dotted blue line (T of low atmosphere) on Graph 3.
A correlation between I. R.sky and temperatures of low troposphere and soil demonstrating an effect of warming by I. R.sky emissions on surface temperatures is not shown during this phase of the experiment. Unmistakably, the atmosphere is warmed up by emissions of thermal radiation from the surface and not the opposite.
