1. Due to convection, does heat
c. hide & play go seek
2. Does the atmosphere act like panes of glass or a real greenhouse?
c. I don't know, but it sounds good
3. Venus is hot because
a. Greenhouse gases
c. Carl Sagan said it is
4. If you shine an infrared heat lamp on a bucket of water [or blow hot air from a hair dryer on the top of the water], will the water temperature
c. Stay about the same
5. Does heat flow from cold to hot?
c. Only in a computer model
6. Can entropy decrease without work input?
c. Only in the fabled AGW "hot spot"
7. What is the maximum additional that a body 0.09C warmer can heat a colder body?
c. whatever an IPCC model says
9. If temperature increases, outgoing radiation from a body
a. increases proportionally
b. increases exponentially to the 4th power of temperature
10. Is a real greenhouse warmer because of
a. limiting convection
b. "trapping" radiation
11. Does AGW theory require an increase or decrease of entropy?
12. The Stefan-Boltzmann Law applies to adiabatic greenhouse gases
b. No, only solid blackbodies
13. If the atmosphere was the same mass, but without greenhouse gases, the Earth would be an iceball
14. The temperature of all the planets can be calculated using the basic physics of AGW theory
15. If you put a larger heat sink on your microprocessor, will the temperature of the microprocessor
c. Stay the same
16. Which is steeper, the wet or dry adiabatic lapse rate, and what does that imply?
a. Wet lapse rate with the presence of the greenhouse gas water vapor is steeper, therefore presence of the primary greenhouse gas water vapor causes warming
b. Dry lapse rate without presence of greenhouse gas water vapor is steeper, therefore presence of water vapor causes cooling
c. What's the adiabatic lapse rate?
17. According to AGW theory, CO2 is responsible for 20% of the 33C "greenhouse effect." Assuming this is true, it would imply CO2 was responsible for 6.44°C warming in 1850 [32.2*.2] and 6.6°C now [33*.2], a warming effect of 0.16°C after all feedbacks despite a 40% increase in CO2 levels. Therefore, climate sensitivity to a doubling of CO2 levels after all feedbacks may be calculated as:
a. 0.33C = ln(2)*[.16/ln(1.4)], 9 times less than claimed by the IPCC.
b. 3C as claimed by IPCC computer models
18. According to climate scientists, greenhouse gases are emitting 333 W/m2 of "back-radiation" to the Earth. If a solar cooker is pointed at the night sky, does the concentrated 333 W/m2 of back-radiation cause the temperature of the focal point of the solar cooker to
c. Stay the same
19. The base of the troposphere on the planet Uranus is 320K, considerably hotter than on Earth [288K], despite being nearly 30 times further from the Sun. This is due to
a. Greenhouse gases
20. If the Earth's atmosphere was 100% nitrogen [instead of 78% presently], what would the base of the troposphere be compared to the equilibrium temperature with the Sun [255K]?
c. The same temperature as the equilibrium temperature with the Sun [255K]
21. The base of the troposphere on Uranus is 320K at 100 bars pressure, despite the planet only receiving 3.71 W/m2 energy from the Sun. By the Stefan-Boltzmann Law, a 320K blackbody radiates 584.6 W/m2. Greenhouse gases amplify the energy from the Sun 157.5 times by:
a. Violating the 1st Law of Thermodynamics
b. The temperature at the base of the troposphere is due to the ideal gas law PV=nRT, where pressure from gravity and atmospheric mass raise the temperature at the base of the troposphere from the equilibrium temperature with the Sun of 89.94K to 320K, regardless of the atmospheric mixture of greenhouse gases
c. What's the Stefan-Boltzmann Law?
22. Can the net heat flux be +150W/m2 from a cold body at -15C [atmosphere mean temperature] to a +15C warm body [Earth]?
b. Yes, by violating the 2nd Law of Thermodynamics
c. Yes, in a computer model
