Basically, global warming theories assume that every part of the planet receives the same amount of solar radiation at the same angle, and that the Sun is always shining onto the planet’s surface (no allocation for night).
In other words, they assume that the Earth is flat with the Sun hanging directly overhead all the time. Flat Earth.
This makes it easier (e.g. no longer impossible) to apply their calculations and estimate the impact that so-and-so amount of greenhouse gas will have on global temperatures (which, again, are not uniform in reality).
Without assuming a flat Earth, with their current capabilities scientists simply cannot source and interpret all the data that is needed to make a reasonably accurate prediction.
The attached graph is in all of the Reports of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate change, and it is fundamental to all their activities. It assumes that the earth can be considered to be flat, that the sun shines all day and all night with equal intensity, and that the temperature of the earth’s surface is constant.
The total energy entering is made equal to the energy leaving. In this way it is now possible to calculate the effect of additional greenhouse gases. If it was not “balanced” and the balance varied it would be impossible to calculate.what are the effects of additional greenhouse gases.
It ought to be obvious. The earth does actually rotate. The sun does not shine at night. The temperature is not constant. Every part of the earth has a different energy input from its output.
There is a correct mathematical treatment. It would involve the division of the earth’s surface into a large number of tiny increments, and the energy input and output calculated for each one, using the changes in all the factors involved. There would then have to be a gigantic integration of all these results to give a complete energy budget for the earth. Only when this is done and repeated over a long period will it be possible to find the influence of increases in greenhouse gases.
