Fake news, fake data

The lefties are hanging tough.  Pushing that AGW nonsense, I see.

Here's another idea to debunk the bunk, which I observed while doing my water experiments.  You no doubt have heard the expression "heat trapping gases".  Well, I noticed that metals will hold heat pretty darned well themselves.

Indeed, it would be interesting to see which would hold heat the longest--- a chunk of metal, or an equal mass of gas.

Trouble is, you cannot run the experiment.  I mean:  how do you measure how well a gas will hold on to heat?  You would introduce other variables into the observations, I would think.

Anyway, here's what you may try:  heat up a container of gas, which is in enclosed in another container.  Measure the amount of heat that is released into the the outer container.

You could do the same for the chunk of metal.

See which one cools off the fastest.  I would bet it would be the gas.

Why would solids hold heat better than a gas?  It is the forces that bind together the atoms and molecules that trap heat.   In a gas, it is presumed to be the makeup of the molecule of carbon dioxide.  However, there is no binding agent between molecules of gas.  For if there were, it would no longer be a gas.  The binding agents between molecules is stronger than any gas, and therefore, will trap more gas.

There is no such thing as a "heat trapping gas", in other words.  Fake news, fake data.  All fake.


What is heat, anyway?  Here's a link that discusses what heat actually is ( to wit) :  kinetic energy within a system.
