Unlike Payne, I won't suffer any professional damage for pointing out the experts, the mainstream, the highly paid government scientists are wrong.
Oh sure you might be thinking, but lets face it, I don't give a fuck what you are thinking at the moment
What triggered this thread was a new science error I just saw, which can be found here
Rather than speak of the multitude of errors contained in that, let's just point out the glaring stupid one. "the vast majority of sunlight is the light we can see"Because the ozone layer normally blocks ultraviolet (UV) light, an ozone hole allows more UV light than usual to reach the surface. However, the additional energy added to the Earth system from the ozone hole is so small that it couldn’t be responsible for the warming trend that’s been occurring.
How small? Well, the vast majority of sunlight is the light we can see—visible light with wavelengths of 400-700 nanometers. UV light is only about 8 percent of all sunlight to begin with, and the ozone layer and oxygen (both of which absorb UV) only permit a fraction of that to reach the surface. The additional amount of UV that the Antarctic ozone hole allows to reach the surface for a month or so each year is a small fraction of an already small amount of sunlight—too small to explain global warming.
That's wrong, and not slightly wrong, hugely wrong. Remember, the author is trying to convince you UV can't affect climate, but they use a false claim. The majority of sunlight is IR. Visible light is %37 percent of the energy coming from the sun. Even if you use bandwidth (which they are not) it's still wrong. IR is 55% of sunlight hitting the upper atmosphere.
And in the same browsing time period I cam across this one
The amount of water vapour in the air is, as a first order approximation, related to temperature - every degree of temperature rise gives us 7% more water vapour.
Now that isn't an expert opinion, but I've read it from many experts elsewhere, no doubt where the armchair expert got it from.
The thing is, it's not true. (Unlike the more obvious wrongs, that one would require qualifications and explanations, all of which is like work.)
