I think I touched on something profound today in class: is our skin colour evidence of Einstein's Nobel Prize work, the photoelectric effect and the (energy of the) photon? What Einstein established was 'light photons' increase in energy, in punch, as the frequency increases, and particularly after the ultra-violet in the electromagnetic spectrum. (pardon the pun 'particularly' - he is one of the fathers of quantum mechanics and particle photons). Before the UV frequency, the energy of visible, IR (heat), microwave, and radio light is diminishing and very weak. Our skin colour, from this work by Dr Nina Jablonski ( Nina Jablonski breaks the illusion of skin color ), is determined by our ancestral exposure, or not, to UV - it's UV that kills us. We adapted/evolved skin colour to protect ourselves from the UV. Light energy after the visible, in the UV, is dangerous to us; and our understanding of this was revealed to us by Albert Einstein and his quantum photo

I've gone back to the drawing board, noticing and frustrated I was not getting the attention I demand from what I have uncovered. I have split my paper into two, and it works; the first I share here, and the second - on how the GHGs are really only the thermoelectric gases and is flawed - I will work on now. N2 and O2 (the '99%' non-GHGs) have QM predicted spectra, and 2338 and 1556 cm-1 respectively and these are observed by Raman Spectroscopy, IR specroscopy's complement instrument. Do not mess with quantum mechanics! Raman laser spectroscopy (not to be confused with the Raman effect!) makes IR spectroscopy redundant: it measures very accurately the QM predicted positions and temperatures!! of N2 O2 CO2 CH4 H2O spectra and more. What is more, the N2- CO2 laser operates on the QM absorption of its one spectra mode. N2 absorbs IR and responds, else no facial surgery. And can you believe it, with this CO2 laser it is N2 that is the gases that 'heats' the CO2.
