A Warming World: Back to Normal? Heresy from the Grand Old Man of Climatology

The modern Earth is warming--recovering from the Little Ice Age of the mid-2nd millenium, CE.
“All this argument is the temperature going up or not, it’s absurd,” Bryson continues. “Of course it’s going up. It has gone up since the early 1800s, before the Industrial Revolution, because we’re coming out of the Little Ice Age, not because we’re putting more carbon dioxide into the air.”

... Q: Could you rank the things that have the most significant impact and where would you put carbon dioxide on the list?

A: Well let me give you one fact first. In the first 30 feet of the atmosphere, on the average, outward radiation from the Earth, which is what CO2 is supposed to affect, how much [of the reflected energy] is absorbed by water vapor? In the first 30 feet, 80 percent, okay?

Q: Eighty percent of the heat radiated back from the surface is absorbed in the first 30 feet by water vapor…

A: And how much is absorbed by carbon dioxide? Eight hundredths of one percent. One one-thousandth as important as water vapor. You can go outside and spit and have the same effect as doubling carbon dioxide.

Reid Bryson received the 30th degree in meteorology granted in the US. At 86 years old he is not worried about his reputation or career. He can speak the plain and obvious truth without concern for the climate police who roam the media of the world, looking for heretics to stone and burn.

For an interesting look into rampant scientific bias that is likely distorting climatology research, see here.
