Quantum Mechanics and Raman Spectroscopy Refute Greenhouse Theory

Authors: Blair D. Macdonald

Greenhouse theory’s premise – nitrogen and oxygen are not greenhouse gases as they do not emit and absorb infrared radiation – presents a paradox; it contradicts both quantum mechanics and thermodynamics – where all matter above absolute 00 Kelvin radiates IR photons. It was hypothesised these gases do radiate IR photons at quantum mechanics predicted spectra, and these spectra are observed by IR spectroscopy’s complement instrument, Raman Spectroscopy; and N2 spectra can be demonstrated to absorb IR radiation by experiment, and application of the N2-CO2 laser. It was found the gases do possess quantum predicted emission spectra at 2338cm-1 and 1556cm-1 respectively, both well within the IR range of the EMS, and are only observed – and their temperatures accurately measured – by Raman Spectrometers. Raman spectrometers make IR spectroscopy redundant: they measure, more accurately, the Keeling curve, and have application with meteorological Lidars and planetary atmospheric analysis. The N2-CO2 Laser showed – contrary to current greenhouse theory – N2 absorbs electrons or (IR) photons at its – metastable ‘long lasting’ – said spectra mode. It was argued atmospheric CO2, as a law, is heated by the same mechanism as the N2-CO2 laser: nitrogen (first) and the entire atmosphere absorbs IR radiation directly from the Sun, just as is heats H2O on the ocean surface. With these findings, greenhouse theory as it stands is wrong – all gases are GHGs – and is in need of review.
