Will Happer should include Raman measurements

Image
I think Professor  Happer has it absolutely wrong , sadly.  This curve was made redundant by quantum mechanics. In the 1920s more spectral modes of molecules were discovered/ identified by Raman scattering experiments by Rasetti and others. The two CO2 modes at 1288 and 1338 cm-1 shown here are both Raman only, as are the H2O and the N2O near to them. Raman Lidars can measure the temperature from these modes, of all of the gases. The last CO2 mode on the right at 2349cm-1 is right by N2's single 2338cm-1 mode. From this mode, the temperature of the atmosphere is measured by Lidars, and by the N2-CO2 laser, it is radiated by infrared photons (or electron discharge). I have written to Happer and he dismisses the/my Raman measurements, sadly. I put this diagram together to show the Raman Lidar reading. Raman can measure the temperature of N2 CO2 H2O and others from surface to high altitudes. In my diagram, I show what Raman spectrometers measure in reference to the blackbody radiation

The Dunn Raman Spectroscopy Climate Debate Fallacy

Image
 I have claimed that we should be using the measurements Raman spectrometer and Lidars to update and augment greenhouse theory as they measure the emission spectral lines the classical IR spectrometer does not.  The Raman spectrometer can measure some of the modes the IR instruments measure; for instance all of H2O's modes and the mode of N2O.  Raman Spectra in the Infrared The discovery of the non-greenhouse gases emission spectral lines of N2, O2, CO2, N2O and CH4 (1929). These lines were discovered long after the greenhouse gases were first discovered by Tyndall (1859). They come after the advent of the bolometer blackbody radiation curve that defines the greenhouse gas spectral modes of the greenhouse gases. These lines were discovered in the quantum age and are known to have furthered the quantum revolution as a proof. They are explained by Bohr's (and others) quantum atomic model. These modes are ignored in greenhouse theory. Raman Spectra of Polyatomic Gases R. G. Dickin

DESI Challenging My Fractal Cosmology Theory

Image
When I saw this in my feeds on Thursday it stopped me in my tracks (stop the train!!) and has since had me thinking - wow! This is epic. A detailed picture looking halfway across the observable universe. It is not looking good for (my) fractal theory, but it is still early days and they are pulling in the (old) quasars out there. We'll see how looks when they are finished. The survey before this one took us out to around 100 (on the x-axis) and was the scale we/I fractal-ists based our work on. I/we have been predicting larger and larger galaxy structures the further out we look. They don't seem to be there. emm ....or? https://newscenter.lbl.gov/2022/01/13/dark-energy-spectroscopic-instrument-desi-creates-largest-3d-map-of-the-cosmos/

Does infrared radiate under water?

Image
 I was just watching the following video clip on the La Pama volcano eruption and was wondering, something I often think about, does infrared heat radiation radiate through the water as it does the air? Would a diver feel the heat as they would if they were on land?  This question stems from my experiment on radiation where I discovered water blocks the infrared whereas glass and the greenhouse gas do not.

ePublic Good (Public Good) Prediction comes true in New Zealand

Image
More than ten years ago I wrote the article  Is the internet making new public goods? ePublic Goods.  In the article, I reasoned the internet is producing, based on the decline and failure in the entrainment and news media industries, a new type of Public Goods, ePublic Goods. e for electronic, or internet-based. Public Goods are, along with Private, Club, and Commons (Common Pool) Goods, a key  phenomenon  in economics,  Public goods are supported by the Governments, and I predicted that this, at the risk of democracy, may happen with the media too someday. If this is true this is not a good thing at all.  Firms in these industries are not profiting and are failing due to the loss of sales from the internet and have been downsizing. This is akin to the examples o market failure with the streetlights, fireworks displays, lighthouses and others. To me, the media and entertainment firms are failing due to the same problems as with these normal Public Good.  The non-rivalry is no one is

2021 Nobel Physics Prize Should be revoked

Image
This year's Prize is 'not even wrong'! (Pauli) and should be revoked. Henrik's work has now been published and explains climate on all time scales. I think this is the greatest discovery humans have made in recent years; the connection between the cosmos and the weather and climate. The CO2 record is a proxy (another measure) for the short and long term Galactic Cosmic Ray cycle. That's all. Now it is up to me to finish it.

Emergent Fractal Attractor Corresponds with Foundational Quantum Problems

Image
I have for over ten years now been writing a theory of quantum mechanics through the fractal. I have found the fractal demonstrates all aspects of the quantum. My problem has been how to get this down on paper and publish it. Over a 6 month period, late 2020 and early 2021 I worked on the following paper with my supervisor, but in the end, I throw it down not at all happy with what I had achieved. I need to approach it in a different way; rather than being an experiment, describe the fractal from a deductive point of view. This I intend to do when things have settled and I have had a break from it all, but this is what I have achieved so far.  Keep in touch, I will let you know when I get started again.  Abstract The field of foundational quantum mechanics originated nearly one hundred years ago yet remains one of the greatest mysteries to physicists today. The experiment in this study tests whether the geometry of fractals, according to a simple isolated iterating fractal (the Koch Sn
