I have often heard this ridiculous argument made by many in support of the man made global warming theory, that if we don’t get control of all this CO2 we’re emitting into the atmosphere by driving our cars and running power generation stations, Earth will fall victim to the “runaway greenhouse gas effect”, just like on Venus…. oh my, scary stuff indeed!
But there’s a big problem with the idea that this could actually happen here on Earth, and it’s quite simple… we don’t live on Venus!
Mr. Huffman’s article goes deep into very specific details including the physics of why this is impossible and why the comparison of Venus to Earth in sighting a runaway greenhouse gas effect is wrong on all levels.
The article is very technical, I had to go over it a few times, but well worth the time to get your facts straight on the subject.
Knowledge is power, enjoy the read:
