By applying generally accepted algorithms on radiative heat transfer, verified through experimentation by Hottel, Leckner(1) and other contemporary scientists and engineers(2)(3)(4), I demonstrate that carbon dioxide molecules do not possess the thermal properties to be able to cause global warming or climate change here on Earth.
The formula applied by several authors on anthropogenic climate change for calculating the atmospheric temperature anomaly caused by carbon dioxide is as follows:
ΔT = α (ln ([ga] ∞ / [ga]st) / 4 (σ) (T)3
Where ΔT is the change of temperature, α is the climate sensitivity of the absorbent gas (5.35 W/m2 for CO2 at 1000 K of temperature, 1 atm of total pressure and 0 of distance), [[ga] ∞ is for the instantaneous concentration of the absorbent gas, [ga]st is the standard concentration of the absorbent gas, σ is the Stefan-Boltzmann constant (5.6697 x 10-8 W/m2 K4), and T is the standard temperature (290 K).
Although this formula has been widely used, several factors are missing that have a definitive influence on the results. Exempli gratia, it fails to account for the sphericity of the system, the partial pressure of the absorbent gas and its buoyancy.
Another problem with the formula is that it represents homogeneous values for the total emissivity and total absorptivity of the absorbent gas, which is absolutely at odds with what has been observed and verified through experimentation because the total emissivity and total absorptivity of any substance changes in proportion to its partial pressure in any given environment.
