Meet the Experts: Weather vs. Climate


Ice and snow can be a hot topic when talking about climate. The polar regions are very fragile and can tell us a lot about how Earth’s climate is changing. Andrew Shepherd of the University of Leeds is a leading climate scientist working with ESA and NASA. In this episode he explains how we can separate the effects of weather versus climate from data records and the role of space in studying changes to our planet in real-time and in the future.

  1. He's a question, supposing the population number stays the same, and technology and other things stay the same if the Planet Warms Up like the scientists say, then does our energy load, go up or down, surely heating homes takes more energy because more homes suffer from cold than air-conditioning homes, so as houses are distributed now would a warmer planet save energy, or consume more, as we need to keep crops cool, stop forests from burning and desalinate sea water, but more of Sibera would be farmland, who has modelled the pros and cons of a warming World.

  2. The theory of the anthropogenic greenhouse effect contradicts Kirchhoff's law of radiation.
    The theory of the anthropogenic greenhouse effect states that the radiation altitude of the IR remission from the middle to upper troposphere into space increase with a higher greenhouse gas concentration.
    According to Kirchhoff's law on radiation the emissivity for each wavelength must correspond to the degree of absorption.
    If the radiation altidude would increase with a higher greenhouse gas concentration then the radiation output would decrease with a pure greenhouse gas and this contradicts the radiation law of Kirchhoff.

  3. NSAS is very jingoistic, apart from two Russians upon arrival the international space station has all been about the Americans," you have control of the battery, I have control of the battery, you have control of the battery, repeat "
