Look to the Morning Star O Skeptic and Be Wise
Because its lovely sulfuric acid clouds reflect a lot of light the planet Venus would be colder than our Earth if carbon dioxide wasn’t in both our skies. Both planets have nitrogen in the air but it is carbon dioxide that determines the surface temperatures.
Without carbon dioxide both planets would be below freezing and all earths oceans would be like the Arctic Ocean.
Fortunately for Earthlings we have a little carbon dioxide in our air and it causes our average surface temperature to be a (relatively) toasty 60 degrees F.
The Venusians are not as well off as we on Earth and their air is mostly a lot of carbon dioxide (as in a whole lot of carbon dioxide) and the average surface temperature on Venus might indelicately be described as a “Hellish” 860 degrees F. On Venus our zinc pennies would melt.
People all over the Earth are burning enough coal, oil and natural gas to steadily increase the carbon dioxide percentage in our air and it is not an insignificant amount and it will increase the average temperature of the Earth.
I, Bob Scott, candidate for US Representative, MS chemical engineer, retired Pellissippi professor, who taught heat transfer, agree that it is legitimate to debate the rate of the effects of increasing the carbon dioxide content of the air. It is irresponsible of my opponent, John Duncan, attorney, career politician, to characterize people who understand the problem as “environmental extremists”.
Venus is the brightest morning “star” . Look up to the morning star and then get down to work on Earth to solve the carbon dioxide problem we people have brought upon ourselves- and the first thing to do is elect Bob Scott !!
