PLEASE NOTE
This has never been done before:  formally validating, substantiating nor metricating  CO2’s actual influence on the atmosphere & climate of Earth.  The services of a licensed professional chemical engineer with omissions & errors insurance have never been secured to develop an empirical and lab-reproducible model of how carbon dioxide interacts on a molecular level on either a macro– or micro-scale with the components of Earth’s atmosphere. 

For this not to have been done makes both sides of the climate issue look like either supercilious demagogues or for-hire controversialists. 

This all changes in 2020 with the publication of the following MDPI compilation of peer-reviewed research articles under sponsorship of their journal entitled “Atmosphere:”

Text Box: Global CCS/CCUS Database
From a strictly commercial point of view, carbon dioxide capture  and storage has been ongoing since 1972 with the advent of EOR (enhanced oil recovery).  With the advent of the Wittemann process in 1874 for beverage and chemical applications is when CO2 capture initiated as an independent industry.   The shell-and-tube heat exchanger refrigeration method is and remains the predominant method for capturing carbon dioxide  commercially and requires no rights licensing to design and build such an array using the services of  a registered professional engineer in hydrocarbon engineering. 

It is therefore my formal recommendation for you to identify the CCS/CCUS facility nearest you for technical advice prior to your utility or firm engaging in such activities. There is always room for new carbon dioxide industrial-grade suppliers.

Text Box: INTERESTING PROBLEM OF THE DAY

The Orbital Carbon Observatory satellite named OCO-2 is an engineering marvel worthy of the highest praise but it suffers from two grievous flaws: the TCCON support organization which provides the calibration mechanism for the sensors on this satellite is no longer providing updates and secondly, the column average CO2 content measurements necessary for calibration are not sufficiently accurate.  The solution?  One suggestion: rocket (sic) like it is 1962 with the eminently reliable and cost-effective “Black Brant” sounding rocket manufactured and designed by Magellan Aerospace.  With a parachute nosecone payload-mounted real-time full-spectrum spectrophotometric gas analyzer capturing and recording atmospheric gas content every 50 feet during the slow descent of the payload as it moves toward Earth from an altitude of up to 100 miles, truly accurate details can then be provided to the OCO-2 data analysis team based in the UK.  This reusable rocket can be launched to gather this data from 10 to 100 different points on the face of the Earth so that NASA’s OCO-2  is no longer flying blind through relying solely on computer models.  After all, empirical evidence is the whole ball game in science as it is in engineering.

Introduction To Logic And The Scientific Method

Sovereign Reason And Other Studies

Systematic Readings In Epistemology

While these permanent reference works on the philosophy of science date from 1935 to 1965, the principles and methods described in them are even more valid than they were when these works were first published.  Please note also that the first few pages in “INTRODUCTION TO LOGIC AND THE SCIENTIFIC  METHOD”  are what is known as “errata sheets” which incorporate corrections to the original  work.  Please insert where indicated.

Text Box: This is an instructor’s comprehensive 1848 edition which happily omits giving precedence to mathematical proofs in favour of more visual and intuitive geometric validation though the work is complete as three volumes in one. The era’s dialect of the American English language sings out grandly in this work to compel the mentor to hold forth from these pages aloud.  Nathaniel Hawthorne and Louisa May Alcott come to mind.
