Spectral signatures of climate change in the Earth ’ s infrared spectrum between 1970 and 2006

Previously published work using satellite observations of the clear sky infrared emitted radiation by the Earth in 1970, 1997 and in 2003 showed the appearance of changes in the outgoing spectrum, which agreed with those expected from known changes in the concentrations of well-mixed greenhouse gases over this period. Thus, the greenhouse forcing of the Earth has been observed to change in response to these concentration changes. In the present work, this analysis is being extended to 2006…

Rebuttal of Miskolczi’s alternative greenhouse theory
In 2010 Miskolczi wrote a scientific paper suggesting that carbon dioxide increases in the Earth’s atmosphere do not lead to more heat being trapped within the Earth system and therefore cannot be a


Increases in greenhouse forcing inferred from the outgoing longwave radiation spectra of the Earth in 1970 and 1997
This work analyses the difference between the spectra of the outgoing longwave radiation of the Earth as measured by orbiting spacecraft in 1970 and 1997 to provide direct experimental evidence for a significant increase in the Earth's greenhouse effect that is consistent with concerns over radiative forcing of climate.
