1)  The Discovery

     The crystal clear solar system wide climate discovery by Dr. Karl Zeller and Dr. Ned Nikolov is based on official NASA data derived from space probes.  They used advanced mathematical analysis techniques to study the climates of rocky surfaced planets and moons in our solar system.  They found they could accurately predict their long term average surface temperatures by knowing just two strategic facts: their distance from the Sun and their atmospheric pressure.  This formula has worked correctly for Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, and Pluto, and for Earth’s moon, Europa, Callisto, Titan, and Triton.  Their predictions have been proven accurate to within one degree Celsius.  Like the value of Pi, this natural mathematical relationship will never go away because it was created by Nature, not by man.

     Zeller and Nikolov found that the specific gaseous composition of the atmospheres of planets and moons are irrelevant to determining their long-term average surface temperatures.  For example, the atmosphere of Venus is composed of 96.5% carbon dioxide, while Earth’s atmosphere contains only .04% carbon dioxide, yet that information was not even needed to predict temperature.  The logical conclusion is that atmospheric gases only contribute to warming by their physical mass, which increases atmospheric pressure.  Atmospheric compression due to gravity keeps the Earth warm, not the infrared radiative properties of the so-called "greenhouse gases."  Therefore, carbon dioxide has no special role in controlling Earth temperatures.  Zeller and Nikolov suggest that "the greenhouse effect" be replaced by the term "atmospheric thermal enhancement." 

     Gas compression heating in a diesel engine eliminates the need for a spark plug.  Obvious atmospheric heating due to air compression occurs regularly in Brookings, Oregon, which is famous for the "Brookings effect" weather phenomena, also known as a katabatic wind.  Winds sweep down from the coastal mountains at high speed which causes atmospheric compression at sea level.  This causes the air to heat up, which often makes Brookings warmer than lower latitude towns on the California coast.  Gravity driven atmospheric compression heating happens everywhere on Earth at all times.  We do not notice it because it is a continuous phenomenon.  Without it, our oceans would freeze to the Equator.

     Schools teach that the carbon dioxide rich atmosphere of Venus creates a powerful greenhouse effect that keeps surface temperatures hot enough to melt lead: about 462 degrees Celsius.  The new evidence suggests that heat is actually produced by Venus’s proximity to the Sun and the weight of its atmosphere, which is over 90 times heavier than Earth’s.  Venus’s tremendous atmospheric mass produces crushing atmospheric pressure, which generates intense heat.

2)  The Secret 

     Dr. Nikolov points out that the greenhouse gas theory violates the Energy-Conservation Law in trying to explain the atmospheric thermal effect exclusively through radiation.  Specifically, the total amount of short wave solar radiation absorbed by the Earth is about 240 watts per square meter.  The measured long wave radiation coming down from our atmosphere is about 343 watts per square meter.  This downward long wave radiation has been falsely assumed to be due to greenhouse gases absorbing long wave radiation emitted by the Earth’s surface as it heats up through short wave radiation bombardment from the Sun.  We thus have 43% more energy coming down from the atmosphere than all the energy received from the Sun in total.  The most likely cause of this excess energy is gas compression heating, not the greenhouse effect, which by definition can only help contain energy created by the Sun.

3)  The Fallacy

     An actual greenhouse has glass walls that blocks convective heat exchange with the surrounding environment, thus insulating the air inside.  Earth's atmosphere has no walls, so convective cooling acts as an escalator transferring heat from the surface of the Earth all the way up to the stratosphere.  The commonly used greenhouse gas theory analogy to a parked car’s windshield is therefore false.  A free flowing gas cannot trap heat, and thus cannot act as insulation to keep the Earth warm.  The insulating effect of the atmosphere was first proposed in the 19th Century as a conjecture without observational evidence.  It later became "settled science" through repetition by many generations of scientists quoting their mentors and peers. 

4)  The Evidence

     Earth’s climate history does not reveal any evidence of carbon dioxide increasing Earth’s temperatures as a “greenhouse gas.”  The temperature increase Earth experienced after the end of the Little Ice Age (1300 to 1870) up to about 1940 was not caused by man-made greenhouse gas emissions because industrial output during those years was too low to make any significant difference.  Therefore, the heat waves and drought that caused the Dust Bowl of the 1930s had nothing to do with fossil fuels. 

     Industrial output and CO2 emissions increased dramatically during World War II and during the post-war economic boom, but the Earth's temperature dropped after 1940 until about 1975.  By the early 1970s the weather had become so cold that there was fear of a coming ice age.  If CO2 was the driving force behind temperature increases, the Earth would have experienced vigorous heating during the 50s, 60s, and 70s, not the remarkable cooling that actually occurred.

     When the world dramatically increased biofuel farming during the Bush and Obama administrations, CO2, methane, and nitrous oxide emissions rose as a result of deforestation, land use change, and increased fertilizer production, yet Earth's global temperature remained flat instead of rising. That fact goes counter to the basic premises of the man-made global warming hypothesis.

5)  The Past

     This new evidence helps explain our planet’s history.  During the Jurassic Period, about 200 million years ago, Earth was significantly warmer with tropical plants growing in polar regions.  Dinosaurs ruled the land while pterodactyls roamed the skies.  Pterodactyls were large winged reptiles that flew like birds despite their heavy bone structure.  Flight would be impossible in today’s relatively thin atmosphere, but when pterodactyls existed our atmosphere must have been much denser; perhaps up to three times as dense.  The greater the air density, the greater the aerodynamic lift, and the greater the atmospheric heat.

6)  Correcting Misconceptions

     The net effect of having water in all three phases (solid, liquid, gas) on Earth is cooling, because clouds reflect sunlight back into Space.  Water dramatically affects weather and the distribution of heat, but it does not cause total global planetary warming. 

     Politicians unscientifically brand carbon dioxide as a “pollutant,” forgetting the obvious proven fact that carbon dioxide created and feeds all life on Earth — and most likely — all life that exists anywhere in the universe.  Adding more CO2 to our atmosphere makes plants grow faster, bigger, and more resistant to drought, which produces more food and lumber.  NASA satellite observations have shown this is already happening around the world.  If we want to make Earth warmer, we will have to either significantly increase total atmospheric pressure or permanently reduce global cloud cover, both daunting tasks beyond our capabilities.

7)  Renewable Energy

     Windmills and solar schemes have been financial and ecological disasters all over the world, causing far more harm than good, and without any benefit to our climate.  Needlessly increasing the cost of electricity hurts the poor the most.  Global biofuel farming has raised the cost of fertilizer, farmland, and food all over the world while increasing topsoil erosion, deforestation, water pollution, and deaths due to malnutrition and related illness.  By even the most conservative estimates, global biofuel farming has killed far more people over the last twenty years than all wars and acts of terrorism combined.  Malnutrition is the primary worldwide cause of avoidable mental retardation in children, but environmentalists and "green" politicians do not seem to care.  Pesticides used on biofuel crops are a major cause of the worldwide kill-off of bees and other beneficial insects.

8)  Hysteria

     The obvious political, financial, and religious motives for spreading climate fear are the real drivers of anti-carbon climate hysteria, not science.  Doomsday religions have been popular since the dawn of man.  Scientists — devout true believers — at NASA, NOAA, and the IPCC have been caught distorting data to increase our level of anxiety.  You can argue with science, but you cannot argue with religious fervor.  Thus, we see the Orwellian spectacle of Americans protesting “global warming” during record cold and snow, and after Niagara Falls froze two winters in a row.  Humans are 18.5% carbon by weight, eat carbon based food, and live in homes made with carbon.  A war against carbon is a war against humanity and life itself.

9)  The Bottom Line 

     The Nikolov-Zeller formulas have been examined by scientists around the world, and no one has been able to find flaw in their mathematics, only displeasure in what their discovery means.  It means this whole charade of dangerous man-made global warming has been much ado about nothing.  It makes famous politicians and scientists look like charlatans and fools, and puts in jeopardy a trillion dollar renewable energy business, which has become a vampiric drain on humanity rather than a savior.  Nikolov and Zeller have not been rewarded for making the greatest discovery in climatology of the twenty-first century.  Instead, they have faced censorship, mud throwing, and deafening-silence from world leaders who should use this new information to develop productive energy polices that will dramatically elevate the human standard of living worldwide.   

To fully understand the Zeller-Nikolov climate discovery, please follow these easy steps.

1)  Watch New Solar System Climate Discovery on YouTube (26 minutes).

Listen to a radio interview, Challenging the Greenhouse Theory, and concentrate on what Zeller and Nikolov actually say.  Understand that in a world dominated by the Orwellian climate change religion, Zeller and Nikolov do not have many options to speak publicly about their finding.  They would be happy to go on 60 Minutes and explain everything, but the daring duo face a wall of news censorship.

THE BIG QUESTION  If this new theory is false, why do the numbers line up like a winning Powerball ticket?  The odds of it being a coincidence have to be
millions to one.  Science progresses through an open-minded peer review process, not through censorship of new ideas.  No theory should be rejected just because it goes against currently popular scientific beliefs, is embarrassing to your political party, and hurts your personal pride and potential for financial gain.
