Precipitable Water Redux

Guest Post by Willis Eschenbach In my last post I investigated the mathematical relationship between the amount of total precipitable water vapor (TPW) in the atmosphere, and the clear-sky greenhouse effect. Here is the main figure from that post showing the relationship: Figure 1. Scatterplot, TPW (horizontal scale) versus Atmospheric Absorption (vertical scale). Dashed yellow…

Claim: CO2 can be stored underground for 10 times the length needed to avoid climatic impact

From the don’t store it in a fault zone department and the UNIVERSITY OF CAMBRIDGE Study of natural-occurring 100,000 year-old CO2 reservoirs shows no significant corroding of ‘cap rock’, suggesting the greenhouse gas hasn’t leaked back out – one of the main concerns with greenhouse gas reduction proposal of carbon capture and storage. New research shows…
