“Just 2 minutes of sunlight on earth is greater than all the energy we produce in one year. Whatever pittance of energy humans add to the heat balance equation is insignificant and not even measurable.”
– Yukon Jack
Blowing the man-made global warming argument out of the water
A question never discussed in the mainstream media is where did all the heat go from all that coal, oil, and natural gas burned? We burned quite a lot, like a trillion barrels of oil so far. One barrel of oil burned turns into 5,700,000 BTU’s and when you add it up it’s a really big number.
The amount of sunlight reaching the earth in just one day is so gigantic it dwarfs all energy use thus far. The actual numbers are quite incredible and never discussed because it blows the whole anthropocentric warming argument right out of the water.
What you are never told is that the sun’s energy input far outweighs anything man is doing. Just 2 minutes of sunlight on earth is greater than all the energy we produce in one year.
If the sun hiccuped we would freeze to death. Life on earth is sustained by sunlight and if we block the sun with nuclear winter or chemtrails we are dooming ourselves. Maniacs like Bill Gates who want to blot the sun out could wipe out our specie.
There are 525,600 minutes in one year. One MINUTE of sunlight is half of that what we consume in energy per year, so that means it would take 262,800 years of current fossil energy use to equal one year of sunlight. That daunting figure is the reason our energy use is insignificant to warming the earth. Whatever pittance of energy humans add to the heat balance equation is insignificant and not even measurable.
If you want a good way to understand how small earth is to the sun compare it to a 24″ beach ball, the earth is the size of a .22″BB. The sun is absolutely huge compared to the earth, and it is the energy from this raging ball of fusion that controls earths temperatures, not some trace gas in the atmosphere. CO2 concentrations are not changing the overall heat equation of earth. Sun inputs energy and earth loses heat to space. What we are doing makes no difference whatsoever to temp.
Whatever caused the earth to cool over the last 50 million years has not changed. Humans are not changing sun output, nor are they changing earth Milankovitch orbital cycles and tilt, thus the energy equation of earth temperature balance has not been changed.
