2+2=4, not 5. global warming made easy.

The internal furnace

Exact numbers are impossible because of the sheer size we have to deal with. But, if you multiply the 10,000 btu's the human body produces each day by 6 billion bodies,you get 60 trillion btu's, every 24 hours. The bomb dropped on Hiroshima produced 60 billion btu's, 60 trillion divided by 60 billion leaves you with 1000. Our bodies produce the same amount of heat, every 24 hours, as would detonating 1000 nuclear bombs.

Now add the heat from all the internal combustion devices,large power plants etc. Let's be conservative and add another 1000 nukes. 2000 nuclear bombs, every 24 hours. How could anyone doubt that this would melt glaciers,warm oceans and melt ice caps?

Al Gore's graphs make more sense if one shows the planet warming compared to the human population explosion. It seems to me that heat = heat may have been overlooked or actually hidden, as I have tried to contact many organizations and individuals and cannot even get a reply. Would love to hear some comments, negative or positive.

Watch this video about human population:

Barry's Response - We've always had animal-based contributions to global warming; one species of animal has had its population increase exponentially while others have disappeared completely, leaving a partial balance. Industrial-based contributions offset that balance significantly, of course.

Do your BTU figures include direct heat output only or will GHG-induced heat entrapment be included in those figures? The global warming crowd seems to believe that GHG's are IT, as far as GW is concerned. Funny, eh?

See an example of the animal voted most likely to contributed to global warming right here.

Well, I couldn’t exactly figure out what we are dealing here with. It was very hard for me to digest these facts as more of these things have been discussed in a more technical manner, which the Lehman cannot easily follow.

I didn't know it. What a astonishing fact it is. I'm surprised. Before reading this reality, I always believed that global warming came about because of technology, but now this reality has changed my thinking. I now know that I, WE ,US ARE THE MAIN CAUSE OF THE THIS DISASTER.

Buffalo and glass.

Hey Barry, yeah I thought about the animal thing and what popped into my head was Buffalo. Not the place, the animal.

In the early 1800's there were "seas" of buffalo in the Americas. Maybe 60 million. A Buffalo is about 5 times the size of a human. 60 million times 5 = 300 million. Less than the population of the sparsely populated U.S.A.

The buffalo is described as the most populous, large animal to ever lived on earth. I have to wonder if there has ever, in the history of Earth, been 6 billion warm blooded animals alive at the same time? That's a lot of good sex.

So GHG? In my opinion, a green house has a solid barrier, glass, that the radiant heat from the sun passes through, but the heat is trapped by a solid, the glass. I don't know a lot about heat transfer through different gases at altitude, but I'm thinking it's nothing like the heat transfer through a solid. That gets me thinking about why it's -70 where the GHG are? Hmmm.

An young, mon ami. Sabai dee?Stop. I hope none of you good people think I'm suggesting that we continue to pollute our planet.

But let's stay focused here please, this is about heat and why we have to much of it. I don't like breathing GHG, but do they actually trap heat?

A greenhouse traps heat because there is a solid barrier that the heat does not transfer through as easily as our atmosphere. Heat transfer to space is not slowed by any type of gas. In my opinion.

Aloha Luke:

One thing that I know, is that the more cement, asphalt and plastic bags that cover our earth. There are trillions of plastic bags that are covering much of our land, sea, lake and river floors plus more in our landfills, making it impossible for earth to breathe. And they, along with all of the cement and asphalt that we are covering our Earth with, take out our trees, rainforests and natural water.

One would think, (CAN'T BREATHE = DIE) I realize there are many other things that man, is doing, while not caring about the future of the earth, only thinking about their "now." I for one, am ashamed to be what is killing, all life on Earth, a man.
