What is really warming the Earth?

Comment: 411 days ago

What I meant to say with the pot of water and the candle is that the heat of the flame has to go somewhere. If as you say the surrounding air cools the pot before the water heats up then the warmth has gone into the surrounding air and has created a rise of temperature there.

Same goes for your heatsink. I know they work great, but all they do is transport the heat from where you don't want it (cpu ?) to somewhere else. the heatsink gives off the heat taken from the source (cpu ?) and dissipates it to , again, the surrounding air, which in the end will make the room warmer.

You say people use water to cool car engines (and computers) . Have you ever noticed the radiator on a car ? It is a device through which hot/warm water runs in order to be cooled by passing air. So again you warm up the air surrounding the machine/engine in which you burn your fossil fuel.

You ask me if I'm trying to say that once heat is created is never goes anywhere. Part may escape in the form of radiation, provided it is not trapped by greenhouse gases.

I said I would like to know what could be the influence of the burniong of fossil fuels on the rise of global temperature.

Try to imagine how much gasoline/diesel is burned every day in internal combustion engines. Set it off in one go and it would even scare Red Adair.

A 747 (or similar plane) needs well over 100 tonnes of fuel for an 8 hour flight. On major airports one takes off every 3 minutes or so.

Think of sea transport and the vast quantities of fuel that is burned there.

These last two you rarely see in the charts and graphs. probably because we depend too much on them and it is easier to blame and tax carowners, but add that to sea of fuel used by cars and you must surely agree with me that a lot of heat is created that was not created roughly 150 years ago, when it was only the sun and the odd vulcano-eruption that warmed our planet

Earth is warming and we blame the greenhouse gases (a.o.) that are produced by burning fossil fuels but never did I see or hear anything about the heat that is thus produced.

A burning candle put underneath a pot of water, however insignificant the small flame may seem compared to the mass of water,  will eventually make the temperature of the water rise.

All the heat we produce by burning coal for electricity, oil for transportation and oil and gas for heating, to name a few of the fossil fuel burning processes, must surely play a role in this process of warming . Big electricity plants need cooling towers, (car)engines get hot and need to be cooled by surrounding air  and the heat produced to warm your house leaks outside so you need to heat some more.   The quantities of fuel burned are huge, and therefor the heat that is produced must be considerable as well.

It is not quite my field so I don’t think I’m the person to try to quantify this,but maybe someone else could ?

When a chain breaks the two parts will just fall down, unlike when a cable, be it steel or, worse,  nylon breaks. These two stretch before they break and therefore will whip around after breaking.

Tree harvesting machine makes light work of trees

It's quick, and looks neat, but where in the old days the guys would make a tidy job, the drivers of these machines couldn't care less and leave everything they don't want just where it drops. Besides that, their machines leave deep marks in the terrain where they work, as well as anywhere else where they go.

Cutting down trees is business, that much I understand, but working in this way takes away jobs for decent lumberjacks/bucherons(in France) and in my opinion does more harm to the environment than the way in which it was done only a couple of years ago.
