Climate Alarmism is based on a flat earth model
The Marxists from the Club of Rome and the associated WEF managed to push their ridiculous "CO2 warming" propaganda into the mainstream, although it is based on a flat earth model. I kid you not - they really calculated their "warming" predictions based on a flat earth model, as I saw in the source code of the Cray-1 XMP at EPFL around 1990. That 400MFlop machine was obviously unable to calculate anything that could have been considered a mathematical model of the earth's climate system - which, to this day, is not well understood. The Cray could not even work with a proper 3D model of earrth. Hence they used a flat earth map heated by a weak, constant sun. The output was based on 50 fudge factors that the operators set arbitrarily to get whatever results they wanted. And they wanted to show that the earth was warming catastrophically. Naturally, not a single one of their "predictions" ever got even close to reality, as admitted, among others, by Stevens & Palmer, 2019: https://www.pnas.org/content/116/49/24390 They tried to downplay the fact that the models diverge among each other by more than the entire estimated warming. In typical Orwellian newspeak, they call lying about the dysmal state of the climate modeling experiment "deemphasizing". At least they have the intellectual honesty to admit that there is no such thing as a "consensus" about climate science. It's hilarious to see how alarmists constantly shifted the timeline. Based on their 1980s-1990s claims, NYC should have been under 15 feet of water since 2015. Extreme weather events did not increase, they declined. Snowfall did not end at lower altitutes, as the IPCC predicted - we just had several years with record snowfall all over the planet, from early fall to the end of spring. Switzerland just experienced record snow cover at the end of May. The rate of sea level change is still the same for at least 150 years. No acceleration whatsoever. Islands are not being swallowed by the ocean - on the contrary, almost all Pacific islands increased their land surface. US relative sea level changes are entire due to erosion. So yes, unfortunately, flat earthers have immense political power and they manage to scare people into accepting their political agenda, which will never have the slightest effect on the climate. Maybe someone could explain to the average person why it is impossible for CO2 "backradiation" to heat anything, as that would violate basic thermodynamics. It's by necessity cooler than the surface that emitted the radiation and hence cannot heat a warmer object. Greenhouses don't work based on radiosity, they work by preventing convection of the heated air trapped inside the greenhouse. Nothing prevents the convection of heated air in the earth's atmosphere. Hence no heat trapping effect and the term "greenhouse gas" is an insult to every educated person. The only - minuscule - heating effect that results from releasing more CO2 is due to the increased air pressure. That's not caused by CO2's chamical properties - adding any type of gas will have the same effect, including a noble gas such as Argon, as demonstrated by this Tuft University experiment: https://rtobin.phy.tufts.edu/Wagoner%20AJP%202010.pdf This is the world we live in - flat earthers now drive global economic and political agendas.
