Will Emission Reduction Change the Rate of Warming?
- The essential theory of climate change that serves as the rationale for the overhaul of the energy infrastructure to renewable and non-fossil fuel sources is that the artificial production of carbon dioxide by humans from previously sequestered carbon deep under the ground causes a perturbation of nature’s delicately balanced carbon cycle and climate system with possibly catastrophic consequences in terms of artificial global warming caused by rising atmospheric CO2 concentration and its GHG forcing of surface temperature (Callendar 1938, Hansen 1981, Lacis 2010).
- Increasing GHG forcing of surface temperature by atmospheric CO2 is described in terms of its absorption of long wave radiation from the earth’s surface. This mechanism…
