The Carbon Dioxide Greenhouse Effect

Spencer Weart's free book offer more than enough information for the anxious reader. Here's a sample of The Discovery of Global Warming's nuggets.

Heat goes where? Oceans, mostly - -

The oceans store much more heat energy created by carbon dioxide (CO2) than "the entire atmosphere." Most of the heat remains within a few meters of the surface (9 feet). About 5/6ths of our CO2 production goes into the oceans; the ocean's ingredients then cause the water to become more acidic. Are we creating giant lemonaid-like oceans?

Arctic's Melting Permafrost and Big Water Mercury Poisoning

There would be no environmental problem if the Earth did not get warmer. The Melting Of Arctic Permafrost Could Release A ‘Mercury Apocalypse’

Methane remains in the atmosphere for up to 17 years and has over 20 times CO2's power to warm Earth; now, we'er about to add mercury to Earth's oceans as the Arctic's permafrost releases mercury into the oceans. Up to 25 million tons of this deadly poison may reach the Arctic Ocean and beyond. By 2100 the deed should be well on its way, according to some reports, which will find reference here soon.

I'm using Spencer Weart's Discovery of Global Warming as a cornerstone for this new project.

Climate Change: Is the Science "Settled"? - - Stephen Schneider explains warming and cooling trends with comments about satillite sensitivity, requirements for assessments of climate science findings, and more. This is deadly boring, but answers questions for folks with questions they must have answered. Satillites slow down because they are not in a real vacuum; there's plenty of going on in space causing them to slow and lose altitude, which changes their findings.
