Time to bump this.
Don't know what you're supposed to talk in this but..
I hope this isn't "unfriendly" but..
I'm reading through Climateprediction.net's website.
Currently taking a look in the about section.
Seems like a HUGE load of crap, like everyother thing with connections to IPCC
I mean like come on.
Have you looked outside?
Notice that BIG, HUGE, raging ball of fire on the sky?
Now try to imagine how big it is comparing to the size of the earth.
Now try to imagine how hot is is comparing the heat of the sun to a boiling kettle.
Now lets say that 50 000 years of history is a long time. (
Yeah right. You know how old the earth is, right?
4.54billion years (or 4.54milliard for you silly americans), 1% give or take. I make it easier for you.
That's 4 540 000 000 years, or 4 billion and 540 million years
So we, as in Homo sapien, have been on this rock for 0.0011%
of the age of the earth.
And what do we make of this?
Earth has been around for a long time, and will be for a long time.
As will the sun be.
Diameter of Earth is ~12 800km
Sun's diameter is 109 times bigger than earth's diameter.
Earths equatorial surface gravity is 0.99732 g or 9,78 m/s if you prefer
Suns equatorial surface gravity is 28 bigger than earths, or 27.94 g or 274 m/s if you prefer.
And finally we get to the heat part
Suns photosphere's temperature is between 4000-6000K=Kelvin, with a effective temperature of 5800K
Suns corona's temperature is ~5,000,000K
0K = -
273.15 degrees Celcius or -459.67 degrees Fahrenheit
0*C & 50*F= 273.15 Kelvin
5800K = 5 526.85 degrees Celsius or 9 980.33 degrees Fahrenheit
And some of you say that 30*C or 86*F is hot.
I'm not even going to try and convert the corona's temperature, too huge number.
What we get from all of this?
We, humans, our time on this rock is the size of a fly's poop. Saying that what human does causes the earths climate to change is utterly idiotic.
Infact, recently earths ocean temperatures have been verified to coincide with the amount of sun spots there is and the number of sunspots peaks every 11.1 years.
Not quite what media wants us to believe.
I encourage everyone to skip the fiction what they're serving in newspapers and head to do your own research over the internet.Edited by lagittaja - 8/5/11 at 11:08pm
