> "Somebody's crunched numbers. Small globally, noticeable regionally:
Nearly all energy used for human purposes is dissipated as heat within
Earth's land–atmosphere system. Thermal energy released from non-
renewable sources is therefore a climate forcing term. Averaged
globally, this forcing is only +0.028 W m−2, but over the continental
United States and western Europe, it is +0.39 and +0.68 W m−2,
respectively... significant increases in annual-mean temperature and
planetary boundary layer (PBL) height occur over gridcells where
present-day AHF exceeds 3.0 W m−2. PBL expansion leads to a slight,
but significant increase in atmospheric residence time of aerosols
emitted from large-AHF regions. Hence, AHF may influence regional
climate projections and contemporary chemistry-climate studies."
The contradiction is so crying--if waste heat is a significant factor
raising global temperatures why then is the greatest warming taking
place precisely in the region--the arctic--where waste heat plays
virtually no role?
This cosmos did none of gods or men make, but it
always was and is and shall be: an everlasting fire,
kindling in measures and going out in measures."
