Re: Energy and global warming
Thank you for taking the time for further explanation.
It still doesn't seem right for many reasons which I don't really have the time to pursue, my training is in another direction, so I would need to get up to speed to do this.
My main objections are firstly that you assume perfect retention of energy from heat generation on the earth, I find this very hard to believe and do not consider it proven. Far more energy gets to the earth during times of high sunspot activity, during low sunspot activity the earth has expereienced mini ice-ages.
The other objection is that you assume this energy is used to melt ice at the poles - why should this be so? You say twice as much heat is liberated as is needed to melt the ice, but this seems only to be for 2003. With perfect retention of heat generated since the industrial revolution began, surely all the ice would have melted by now?
To be taken seriously, you need to submit this hypothesis to a suitable journal for peer review by specialists. I have a feeling that there are basic flaws in the underlying science.
