A Few Global Warming Details
Here are Earth's Jet Streams that affect its climates.

- The "Global Warming" phrase refers to Greenhouse Effect
as its cause, scan this Greenhouse Gas page to compare each for its abundance and impact, especially Water Vapor.

Greenhouse Effect make Earth special.
See graphics for some history.
CO2 is also a volume indicator of fossil fuel burned when generating electricity.
- Greenhouse Gas "Emissions" can be Man made.
EPA doesn't explain natural events, e.g. Jet Stream & Water Vapor.
- Climate Change phrase has become more popular than "Global Warming".
- The most significant Greenhouse Gas in that listing above is Water Vapor;
volume is > 24× the CO2 Ref. gas.
Water Vapor is Natural in Earth's atmosphere, is NOT man made, and as always, it regulates its area temperature.
EPA said that Water Vapor heats Earth more than CO2, and they left out the natural cooling phases in the Water Cycle.
Scientists and Meteorologists can explain.
- Water Vapor is H2O evaporated into Earth's atmosphere. The Water Cycle has several phases after vapor, which makes Earth special.
dew & rain]
which are phenomenon that increases Refractive Index ~33% over vapor. That's the only way that H2O Vapor returns to liquid.
Millions of tiny droplets are separated from each with air, causing Infra-Red (IR) heat rays to bend millions of times. They do not exit mist in their initial direction, and are less powerful than before.
(Click those phase words for Wikipedia to give thorough definitions.)
This is how H2O regulates temperature: relative humidity, temperature and barometric pressure. a natural area thermostat
Low-particulate atmosphere lets Sun IR rays pass through to warm Earth's surface, and that atmosphere absorbs some heat. Earth's surface emits a different wavelength IR than what came through, and greenhouse gas limits how much gets out.
This is normal & ordinary greenhouse effect with greenhouse gas.
Particulate Matter Pollution in the atmosphere. It absorbs more Sun rays and limits their passage to Earth's surface. Atmospheric temperature is higher with particles than with usual greenhouse gas, and Earth's surface heat is lower than normal.
Particle pollution is like having the shade of cloud coverage, and causes Earth surface temperature to differ from normal greenhouse effect.
This may quickly affect a climate and more.
- Jet Stream
is a westerly wind (traveling East) 5 ~ 10 miles above the Earth's surface,
transporting humidity, storms, gases and suspended particulate matter many thousands of miles.
Nations on Earth emitting anything airborne affect those mostly on their east side.

- This CO2 Source (above) uses dirty fuels and has NO EPA
Jet Streams carry that CO2 & Pollution into USA and beyond,
while that source builds another electric plant every month.
- Los Angeles, USA has noted particulate air pollution from this Source for nearly 2 decades; they knew it wasn't theirs.
- In 2015, the above Source is emitting double (2×) CO2 as United States.
Source's President was in a 2015 UN Meeting, and stated this might be addressed in 2030.
- Worldly management requires knowing all sources and
CO2 weight by nation to prioritize International EPA.
