  • Introduction

    What is global warming?
    Some specialists said:
    Humans are putting greenhouse gases into the atmosphere that they caused the earth’s average temperature to rise. This is called global warming, or greenhouse effect.
    Really, so called “global warming” , or atmospheric “greenhouse effect”, is a pseudo proposition, because the global warming is not clearly relative to so called “greenhouse effect” and “greenhouse gases” emitted by human activities. In fact, the rise of temperature of the atmospheric layers depends the increase of heat radiation of the sun and the earth to the atmosphere. The “global warming” theory had great influence all over the the world, and in the China, also many people believed which is true, and right and scientific. In Chinese academic circle, there were some scientists who infatuated “global warming” theory, and they placed “ global warming” theory on the god altar, and accept some people to prostrate oneself in worship.
    According to basic principles of thermodynamics, we know that to raise the temperature of an object, it is necessary either to add heat to it from some sources at a higher temperature or do work. So on the earth, the change of the temperature of the atmosphere layers is relative closely to heat radiation of the sun and the earth. Function of increasing and keeping the temperature of the atmospheric layers mainly depends absorption of both short wave radiation of the sun and long wave radiation of the surface of the earth. This function of increasing and keeping temperature of the atmospheric layer, is called the “heat effect “ of the atmospheric layer.
    The concept of “heat effect “ of the atmospheric layer was put forward first by Jean-Baptiste- Joseph Fourier (1768-1830), an French mathematician, who announced the role of increasing and keeping temperature of the atmospheric layer, and set up the theoretical foundation of the atmospheric heat effect.
    Later, the role of increasing and keeping temperature of the atmospheric layer was called “greenhouse effect” by some specialists. Really, the mechanism of increasing and keeping temperature of the atmospheric layer is completely different from that of artificial greenhouse, and so that the atmospheric heat effect is called “greenhouse effect”, is completely not proper, not true, or not scientific.
    The some specialists who believe greenhouse effect theory intend to decrease emission of greenhouse gases from human activities and to prevent the increasing of atmospheric temperature and to stop global warming.
    Really, to decrease emission of greenhouse gasses and to control greenhouse effect could not stop global warming, and also could not prevent happening of climate disasters. Largely to decrease greenhouse gases would tire the people and drain the treasury, and make a futile effort. It is suggested that the governments all over the world should not easily believe the theory of the atmospheric greenhouse effect, and do not make policy to decrease emission of greenhouse gases.
