Because of the stringent censorship policy of Anthony Watts his award-winning WUWT science blog is not a place you will find articles skeptical of the so-called greenhouse gas theory (GHE). In keeping with that ethos Willis Eschenbach’s recent guest article for Watts provides another defense of what critics say is pseudo-science. Nonetheless, adverse comments there soon began to fly, which was unusual coming from loyal WUWT readers. Below is an edited version of Joe Postma’s impassioned refutation of that Eschenbach piece. If only Mr. Eschenbach and Mr. Watts would engage Postma and other GHE critics in debate. There is no doubt WUWT readers have a growing appetite for it.

The Fraud of the AGHE Part 11: Quantum Mechanics & The Sheer Stupidity of “GHE Science” on WUWT

By Astrophysicist, Joseph E. Postma

On this fairly recent post at “Watts Up With That”, guest contributor Willis Eschenbach developed an explanation for the Atmospheric Greenhouse Effect using steel shells, with one inside the other. What Willis does is so intellectually offensive, so mentally incompetent, that it beggars the imagination. Willis takes an inner sphere radiating at a certain temperature as a blackbody, and then surrounds the sphere with a metal shell in order to trap the radiation.

Third-rate science has long been welcome in climatology. It has been deliberately modeling our Earth as flat for 50 years; all to hide the fictional effect described by the ‘greenhouse gas theory.’ In his latest stunning analysis astrophysicist, Joe Postma again demonstrates why it’s so dangerous to trust government climate science.

Looking through his astrophysicist's eyes Joe Postma made a great point when observing our beautiful blue, wet planet from space: “Energy leaves the Earth, the same amount leaving over two hemispheres, as what comes in over a single hemisphere.”

Amazingly, for over 50 years climate researchers overlooked the huge significance of this basic fact when they modeled Earth simplistically by averaging incoming solar radiation equally over both hemispheres. In the age before supercomputers it was expedient to ignore the complexity that our 70% liquid planet creates due to day/night heating and cooling of the water cycle. Averaging across the entire globe this solar radiation energy input was a fudge factor that gave rise to a rigid but flawed greenhouse gas radiation-obsessed paradigm.

Principia Scientific International Publishes Ground breaking Paper
Refuting the Greenhouse Gas Theory
(by John O'Sullivan, October 30, 2012)

Joseph E. Postma's new paper is the most coherent and complete analysis any of the 120+ members of Principia Scientific International has seen on the greenhouse gas theory (that includes one Nobel SCIENCE prize nominee!).

As a multi-disciplinary group of dedicated and trusted colleagues, we see there is so much original material here to establish a watershed. We do not make the claim lightly because we know our credibility will depend on this. Nonetheless, if these findings are widely confirmed then future climate researchers may well be discussing the science in terms of “pre-Postma” and “post-Postma” analysis.

Principia Scientific International, as a fledging science association, is pioneering a new kind of peer-review in open media (PROM). As such, we heartily welcome full and open public examination of Postma's work. It is in the interests of us all that Postma's claims are put under the spotlight and either accepted as compelling and valid or demonstrated to be flawed and inconsequential.

After the Skeptical Science blog publishes it's critique of the recent paper by scientist Joseph E. Postma debunking the so-called greenhouse gas effect, Postma posts another telling rebuttal provided below.

By Joseph E. Postma (Astrophysicist)

I have been asked to write a brief overview on the errors and misconceptions as presented on the so-called “Skeptical Science” blog. I’d first like to point out that the term “skeptical science” is an oxymoron and so it immediately calls into question what kind of person might use such a term.

It's attempted debunk of my paper states: “Joseph Postma published an article criticizing a very simple model that nonetheless produces useful results.”

John O'Sullivan: That Bogus Greenhouse Gas Whatchamacallit Effect
Monday, January 16th 2012, 1:53 PM EST
Co2sceptic (Site Admin)
Red-faced global warming policymakers are now back tracking as independent experts increasingly discredit the cornerstone of climatology: the greenhouse gas effect (GHE).

One such whistleblower is Dr. Pierre R Latour who explains adroitly below how his NASA colleague, septuagenarian Dr. James Hansen, concocted a mythical 33°C [91.4°F] atmospheric greenhouse gas global warming phenomenon.

NASA's global warming guru, Dr. James Hansen, will go down in history as climate science's Bernie Madoff for his pivotal role in touting the GHE hypothesis. This is no imprudent comparison - just “follow the money” as they say. It was Hansen’s now legendary doomsaying pronouncements to the U.S. Congress in 1981 that spawned a hundred billion dollar, thirty-year government Ponzi scheme (Madoff scammed ‘only’ $50 billion).

None who sat on that congressional committee appear to have been aware that in 1951 the American Meteorological Society (AMS) had already condemned the GHE to the trashcan of failed theories.

When Cooking the Numbers Ain’t Ok

Now retired, former DuPont and NASA Chemical Engineer, Latour is unconstrained in his opinion,” The 33°C are whatchamacallits. This greenhouse gas effect does not exist.”

Dr. Latour is one of many experts old enough to remember that in 1981 James Hansen stated the average thermal T (temperature) at Earth’s surface is 15°C (ok) and Earth radiates to space at -18°C (ok). From that he declared the difference 15° - (-18°) = 33°C (arithmetic ok) to be the famous greenhouse gas effect.

John O'Sullivan: Thermometer Manufacturer Destroys Greenhouse Gas Warming Myth

An independent climate science think tank produces evidence from a leading infrared thermometer manufacturer proving that climatologists were mistakenly taking incorrect readings of atmospheric temperatures. Latest findings are set to trigger a paradigm shift in climate science.

Researchers from Canada, USA, Mexico and Britain this week announce a startling discovery that destroys 20 years’ of thinking among government climatologists.

Climate scientists had long believed infrared thermometers measured thermal radiation from the atmosphere and assumed it was 'proof' of the greenhouse gas effect (GHE). Their assumption was that infrared thermometers (IRT’s) were measuring ‘back radiated’ heat from greenhouse gases (including water vapor and carbon dioxide). But damning new evidence proves IRT's do no such thing.

Now a world-leading manufacturer of these high-tech instruments, Mikron Instrument Company Inc., has confirmed that IRT’s are deliberately set to AVOID registering any feedback from greenhouse gases. Thus climate scientists were measuring everything but the energy emitted by carbon dioxide and water vapor.

One of the researchers involved, Alan Siddons, has analyzed the GHE for over six years. He has long condemned the practice of using IRT’s as a means of substantiating the increasingly discredited hypothesis.
Top African Scientist Backs Team Debunking Greenhouse Gas Fraud by John O'Sullivan

World leading scientist slams the greenhouse gas effect and endorses the work of a rising group of independent climate analysts. Move signals further collapse of cornerstone of man-made global warming among top tier of world scientists.

Will Alexander is Emeritus Professor of Civil and Biosystems Engineering at the University of Pretoria, South Africa. He has come out to issue an unequivocal statement endorsing a new paper published by a think tank of independent climate analysts known as the ‘Slayers.’

Alexander’s comments are intended as a wake up call to COP17 international climate delegates converging on his native South Africa in Durban at the end of November. The top hydrologist declares:

“the whole climate change issue is an exercise in futility. There is no analytically believable evidence that links greenhouse gas emissions with adverse climatic changes.”

In ‘Earth-centred climatology: Memo 10/11’ (September 17, 2011) Professor Alexander showcases ‘Copernicus meets the greenhouse effect,’ a new paper by Canadian researcher, Joseph E. Postma that exposes crucial flaws in key government climate equations that incorrectly model Earth as if it were a constantly radiating star. It is this error, says Postma that leads government climatologists in their mistaken belief there is a ‘greenhouse effect’ trapping industrial heat and causing man-made warming Earth.

Cradle of Humankind June 1947

Two million years ago the earliest humanlike creatures lived and played within 100 km of my laptop as I write these notes. One day, during a drought a young woman and a teenage boy ventured into a shallow limestone cave to reach a pool of water where they could quench their thirsts. The roof of the cave collapsed on top of them.

This region is now called the Cradle of Humankind because of the wealth of humanoid and other fossils discovered in the area.

The excavations and interpretation of the fossils by international teams are well co-ordinated and the results published in international scientific journals.

As a (very) remote descendant of these beings I can state with complete confidence that my fellow human beings who believe in current climate change theory will never in their lifetime or those of their descendants, succeed in demonstrating that their complex global climate computer models can replicate the properties of the hydro-climatological processes essential for the design of bridges across rivers and dams to store water for human needs. They are applying a scientific assumption that Copernicus demonstrated was false some 400 years ago.
Bogus Greenhouse Gas Numbers Create Waterless Earth by John O'Sullivan, guest post at Climate Realists

Bogus Greenhouse Gas Numbers Create Waterless Earth

According to the numbers fed into government equations for the greenhouse gas effect (GHE) Earth would not have any liquid water at all. This is a key revelation of astrophysicist, Joe Postma’s new paper.

“Is any model that can’t give us liquid water a model worth trusting?” So asks Postma as he goes about providing an alternative Earth climate model that uses the same starting and finishing points as does the GHE i.e. his numbers balance Earth's in = out energy budget.

Postma’s alternative model accommodates something utterly critical: it factors in a wet Earth made up of mostly liquid water. By contrast, the standard GHE model used by IPCC/NASA does not. Their version requires all water on Earth to exist only as frigid ice. "Hardly credible" and "junk science" says an emergent group of skeptics known as the Slayers.

An Earth Model with No Water is No Good

Astrophysicist Postma, one of their newer recruits, posits that any model of the Earth that doesn’t factor in liquid water is unphysical junk. Who can disagree with that statement? The first half of Postma’s paper sets out the numbers for the standard GHE model and thereafter he lays out his version and invites us to determine which is the more credible.
