Those who would deny that carbon dioxide has a blanketing effect on infrared radiation are just as likely to deny Cosmic Law by which God rules all His Creation.

Thus, for example, it becomes apparent that some who deny the ‘greenhouse effect’ fail to understand that the term itself is an analogy used to help describe the fact that carbon dioxide has a blanketing effect upon infrared radiation. Additionally, others confuse the term ‘infrared radiation’ (emission of energy as electro-magnetic waves) with the ‘heat transfer’ of conduction.
Furthermore, some people state that even though carbon dioxide is a ‘greenhouse gas’, its percentage is so small that it can only have a negligible effect. Hmm, okay; but, consider the co-measurement of water vapor and carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.
If you could bring all the clouds and water vapor in the atmosphere to the surface, it would form a ‘liquid’ layer less than an inch deep, and clouds alone would create a layer no deeper than a coat of paint. If just this past year’s carbon dioxide emissions alone could be confined to an undiluted layer of pure CO2 at the surface of the Earth, the layer would be about 1.5 inches thick. Now, multiply that times the number of years.....
