Density of glass

From this source, which I cannot vouch for, but presume that it is accurate.  Why wouldn't it be?

2400–2800 kg/m3

How to make this number meaningful?  Seems to be pretty heavy, huh?

There are 1000 liters in a cubic meter.

For comparison purposes, lets compare glass to a gas, like mmmm  carbon dioxide.  Any gas at standard temperature and pressure consists of its atomic weight within 22.4 liters.  I think this is called Boyle's Law.  Or the Gas Law, or what have you.  Look it up, if you want to know that badly.  Rest assured, this is correct.  In other words, the atomic weight of carbon dioxide is 44 g/ mole.  A mole is a set number of atoms or molecules, in case ya didn't know dat.  The number is not important, again look it up.

So, 1000/22.4 equals the number of molecular units of the atomic weight of 44.  So, dividing that number and multiplying by the atomic weight will give you the mass of one cubic meter of carbon dioxide.  It looks to be about 2 kilograms.  So, glass is about 2000 kg v. carbon dioxide at 2 kg.

If my previous discussion about pressure meaning more than what kind of gas there is turns out to be correct, which I think it is, then it can be seen clearly that glass works a whole lot better.  For no gas is going to be all that dense.  Makes no difference what gas it is, it cannot even begin to match glass for density.

Let's put it another way.  In terms of volume, you need 1000 times more gas to equal the greenhouse effect of glass.

No gas can even begin to match that.  Not methane, not carbon dioxide, not anything.

Why do people believe the man made global warming nonsense?  Because the leadership says so.  That's all there is to it.  There's this little proof I just did and that goes up against the authority.

Who ya gonna believe, me or your lyin' eyes?
