See the Tabbed Pages for links to video tutorials, and a linked list of post titles grouped by topic.

This blog is expressly directed to readers who do not have strong training or backgrounds in science, with the intent of helping them grasp the underpinnings of this important issue. I'm going to present an ongoing series of posts that will develop various aspects of the science of global warming, its causes and possible methods for minimizing its advance and overcoming at least partially its detrimental effects.

Each post will begin with a capsule summary. It will then proceed with captioned sections to amplify and justify the statements and conclusions of the summary. I'll present images and tables where helpful to develop a point, since "a picture is worth a thousand words".

Light and Heat - The Greenhouse Effect: Video

I've created a video entitled Light and Heat - The Greenhouse Effect
It’s a pictorial explanation of the greenhouse effect. Gases in the atmosphere, such as carbon dioxide, that absorb heat radiation, then re-emit it, serve as greenhouse gases. The notion of a one-way Carbon Arrow of carbon from fossil fuels in the earth to extra carbon dioxide in the atmosphere is set out. Additionally a Carbon Dioxide Bathtub is a good model for the accumulation of extra carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.

Please have a look!

This video expands on material I’ve previously posted here:

This is the second in a series of videos that also includes:
            Our Invisible Energy and
            Fossil Fuels and Global Warming.
