Answers to frequently asked questions about climate change.

  • The contains the subsurface data which reveal the ways that heat is distributed and redistributed over the planet

  • It is the result of heat absorption by certain in the atmosphere (called greenhouse gases because they effectively 'trap' heat in the lower atmosphere) and re-radiation downward of some of that heat

  • An enhanced greenhouse effect is expected to cause cooling in higher parts of the atmosphere because the increased 'blanketing' effect in the lower atmosphere holds in more heat, allowing less to reach the upper atmosphere

  • in the way in which it is in fact posited" are added because if the same heat is produced simultaneously by a fire and by the sun, then even though the heat would still be produced if one of these causes were removed, still it would not be produced in the way in which it is produced by both of them, since either it would not be equally intense or else it would not be produced in such-and-such a stretch of time; for it would be produced more quickly by the two of them than by one of them alone

  • Perhaps you will object: "It follows further that if the heat were produced by the fire along with the First Cause and were conserved by the First Cause alone, then the fire would not be a cause of the heat, since in that case the heat would not be removed when the fire was removed." One should reply that the fire is in that case a cause of the production of the heat (since without the fire the heat is not produced), but it is not a cause of the conservation of the heat

  • But if, once the fire were directed to a thing able to be heated, God were to suspend the action of the fire and were to produce the heat by Himself in the thing able to be heated, then the fire would not be a cause of the heat produced in this way; for even if the fire had not been so directed, the heat would still have been produced by God

    as what can be cooked in a solar oven.

  • Not only could plants not make food without the sun, they also couldn't make oxygen, and no animals could breathe, including us! The sun produces nearly all the heat on the planet, too--without it, the earth would be freezing cold--minus hundreds of degrees Fahrenheit, almost as cold as space

  • Its heat makes clouds, rain, snow, and all the weather on our planet, too

  • What does solar energy mean? Solar energy just means energy (light or heat) that comes from the sun

  • Entire cities were built this way! (They were way ahead of us.) The Romans got the idea to put glass in windows, which allowed the sun's light to pass through but trapped its heat

  • Skipping ahead a few thousand years, in the 1700s someone in Europe figured out you could make water boil by collecting the sun's heat behind a few panes of glass

  • A solar hot water heater! From the early 1920s to just before WWII, everyone in Florida heated their water with solar hot water heaters

  • First, we can use the sun's energy to heat things--our houses, the water in our houses, the food in a solar cooker, and so on

  • (Thermal means heat, so solar thermal energy just means heat energy from the sun.) The second basic way we can use solar energy is to turn light from the sun directly into electricity, using solar panels

    Evolution of stars
    Simple explanation of birth, life, and death of stars.

  • The Trapezium in the Orion Nebula, another region of starbirth The compression of the cloud generates heat and that heat gives the cloud own light

  • The proto-star will eventually transform into a giant planet made of gas, with some heat and some emission of light, but that heat eventually will cool down

  • The merging process of two nuclei generates heat; that heat rises the temperature even more

  • The contraction of the star slows down and finally ceases, as the heat inside the star compensates the gravitational force of the star

  • With the nuclear reaction stopped - and the heat still emanating from the star - there is no longer balance between the heat released inside the star and the gravitational force

  • The heat generated by hydrogen burning in the envelope surrounding the core of the star makes the outer layers of the star expand

  • The core of the star - though - behaves like solid matter; the core cannot expand very much to compensate the extra heat source

  • This means that the inside of the core of the star becomes even hotter, which adds even more to the pressure, which again means even more heat in the core of the star and that means an even faster nuclear reaction

    Dying Alone in the Heat Wave, an interview with Eric Klinenberg
    The 1995 heat wave killed more Chicagoans than the Great Chicago Fire. An interview

  • 'By the end of Heat Wave , Klinenberg has traced the lines of culpability in dozens of directions, drawing a dense and subtle portrait of exactly what happened during that week in July.'—Malcolm Gladwell, New Yorker 'Klinenberg argues that the heat wave wasn't so much a breakdown of nature as it was a breakdown of the social structure

  • Quietly devastating.'—Caroline Leavitt, Boston Globe ' Heat Wave is not so much a book about weather, as about the calamitous consequences of forgetting our fellow citizens

  • A provocative, fascinating book, one that applies to much more than weather disasters.'—Neil Steinberg, Chicago Sun-Times 'What makes Heat Wave such an essential book at this moment in American politics is that, using the 1995 heat wave as his paradigm, Klinenberg has written a forceful account of what it means to be poor, old, sick and alone in the era of American entrepreneurial government

  • It's hard to pin down Heat Wave without believing you've just read a tale of slow murder by public policy.'—Charles Taylor, 'Remarkable

  • Klinenberg's immediate aim is to explain the heat wave's unprecedented death toll, and he does so with chilling precision

  • Irreversible systems and losses of heat (for example, due to friction) prevent the ideal from taking place at every step

  • Carnot's theorem is a formal statement of this fact: No engine operating between two heat reservoirs can be more efficient than a Carnot engine operating between the same reservoirs

  • A corollary to Carnot's theorem states that: All reversible engines operating between the same heat reservoirs are equally efficient

    Howstuffworks "How does a heat pump work?"
    How does a heat pump work?

  • | Popular Searches > > > > > > > Sponsored By: Subjects > > > > > > > > > > > > > > > How does a heat pump work? If you have read, then you are familiar with the basic process that allows an air conditioner to concentrate cold in one set of coils (inside the house) and heat in another set (outside the house)

  • Then you would have a heater

  • It turns out that this heater works extremely well

  • Rather than burning a fuel, what it is doing is ' moving heat .' A heat pump is an air conditioner that contains a valve that lets it switch between 'air conditioner' and 'heater.' When the valve is switched one way, the heat pump acts like an air conditioner, and when it is switched the other way it reverses the flow of Freon and acts like a heater

  • Heat pumps can be extremely efficient in their use of energy

  • But one problem with most heat pumps is that the coils in the outside air collect ice

  • The heat pump has to melt this ice periodically, so it switches itself back to air conditioner mode to heat up the coils

  • To avoid pumping cold air into the house in air conditioner mode, the heat pump also lights up burners or electric strip heaters to heat the cold air that the air conditioner is pumping out
