    The bigger "problem" remains, untested in labs or properly explained; how does one part of the atmosphere transfer equal(or greater) heat it temporarily retains to the other proportional 2,499 parts of the atmosphere ???

      No "large deal" ...
      ... when one considers that CO2 is only about 0.04% of the 1% of atmosphere not being 21% oxygen or 78% nitrogen.

      Would be great if the "gorebot" pro-ACC/AGW advocates could learn some science and math and be honest in what they present.
      Out of curiosity, did you ever read any of the dozen or so scientific sites on CaRBON DIOXIDE MOLECULAR RESONANCE that I referred youto?

              According to your un-cited source(s), how much of the "CO2 emissions" are generated by fauna respiration?

                Enough to see that there was no address of how one molecule can transfer an equal and excess heat to another 2,499 molecules.
                However, if there is a specific passage in any of those "dozen or so" that you think specifically answers, than please present the detail.

                FWIW, I haven't time to waste read through numerous links to find ambiguous implications some think might be there. If one can't find and present a relevant and precise and specific excerpt, I'm not doing their homework for them.

                  You can always send in complaints..
                  I'm sure the Smithsonian, Scientific American, and your NOAA would love to read them.

                      It’s like claiming NASA is hiding evidence of aliens on the moon and Mars... while using images taken by NASA.

                      The deniers seem to ignore the recent data yet cling onto the past data. You can’t have one without the other.

                        One also has to realize that the "Effects" might not always be the result of "Causes" they presume.

                        Often it seems that "Coincidence" is confused with "Cause". Which we see in case of claims that increased CO2 results in increased "global warmth" when records "way back" just as often show increase in warmth precedes increase in CO2 levels.

                        Any honesty and serious examination of "charts and graphs" presented earlier will see as many cases of "Climate Change~Global Warming" that "might have been" caused by CO2 increase as Cases where increase in 'Global Warming' resulted in increases of global CO2!

                              Out of curiosity (and shaky memory) are referring to this basic chemistry/science version of molecular resonance;
                              ...
                              In chemistry, resonance is a way of describing bonding in certain molecules or ions by the combination of several contributing structures (or forms,[1] also variously known as resonance structures or canonical structures) into a resonance hybrid (or hybrid structure) in valence bond theory. It has particular value for describing delocalized electrons within certain molecules or polyatomic ions where the bonding cannot be expressed by one single Lewis structure.

                              ............................
                              OR ... some form of mubble-jubble pseudo-science version of molecule resonance involving two or more types of different molecules with two or more different elements such as say carbon dioxide=CO2 versus water=H2O ????

                              Until your share/remind me of what obscure and deviant concept you were trying to present, I'm not sure how your imagination finds a way for one molecule to "resonant" equally onto 2,499 other molecules ...

                                Reg S. - appreciate the attempt at humor (which is what I think you may be after); but wondering if perhaps this is just another expression of scientific ignorance ... ???

                                Fauna is all of the animal life present in a particular region or time. The corresponding term for plants is flora. Flora, fauna and other forms of life such as fungi are collectively referred to as biota. Zoologists and paleontologists use fauna to refer to a typical collection of animals found in a specific time or place, e.g. the "Sonoran Desert fauna" or the "Burgess Shale fauna". Paleontologists sometimes refer to a sequence of faunal stages, which is a series of rocks all containing similar fossils. The study of animals of a particular region is called faunistics.
