    From Just prove CO2,

    The Climate Challenge

    Excerpts:

    "On 12 November 2015, Dr. Peter L. Ward issued a Climate Challenge offering to give $10,000 from his children’s inheritance to the first person or team of people who can demonstrate through direct measurements in the laboratory and/or in the field that a 15% increase in carbon dioxide, such as that observed from 1970 to 1998, can actually cause more warming of Earth’s surface temperatures than caused by observed contemporaneous depletion of the ozone layer of up to 60%. The experiment must be reproducible.

    This challenge was sent by email to more than 2000 scientists who wrote or reviewed the 2013 IPCC Physical Basis Report and was issued to the media and on the web. No one has shown any serious interest."

    and,

    "The only direct experiments documented in the scientific literature were done by Knut Ångström in 1900, one in the Canary Islands and one in the laboratory. Both experiments showed that increasing CO2 concentrations had little effect on air temperature."

    ====================================

    It has been nearly FOUR years since challenge was posted, has anyone taken the challenge to produce Direct measurements from Laboratory or in the Field to answer Dr. Wards detailed challenge??

    The experiment I and 4 others did shows conclusively that CO2 has no effect on the atmosphere in the absence of or with low levels of water vapor. The bands of energy that are emitted from this gas posses no power to warm the atmosphere in these regions absent water vapor.

    There will be no takers as the physics is clear in this matter.

    Looks like the science really is settled

    The hole in the ozone layer is in the Southern Hemisphere. Why is the most dramatic warming occurring the Arctic?

    Ocean currents... Which just turned cold this year... Watch what happens now... Were below the freezing point of salt water now.

    AGW climate alarmist have never been able to produce any model that proves any of their theories.

    Models abound that re-enforce their failed hypothesis. Its empirical evidence and their models failing to mirror reality that is the problem..

    Does this mean you can't answer this question from post one?
