...it simply must reflect at visible (and higher) frequencies and therefore it would have a cooling effect, not warming, just like clouds of water vapor do.
To further clarify, high-energy light should be reflected away while only retaining low-energy IR light and therefore the overall effect is cooling. What am I missing? ...
Rut Roh...What you missed is the memo that the subject won't be determined by scientific methods.
While we're on the subject, which would you or anyone prefer?
1. A return to an "ice age"--the most recent being about 10,000 years ago; no offense to Young Earth Creationists;
