If alive today, Albert Einstein would almost certainly have
been labeled a global warming "denier"...
His views and theories
would be considered controversial - a word that shouldn't exist in
science - and I'm sure the horde of climate zealots would work
tirelessly to destroy his career.
Back in 1919,
Einstein showed that if a gas was in thermodynamic equilibrium
the rate of adsorption by an infrared gas was equal to the
Meaning, if you increase the amount of infrared active gases in
the atmosphere you will increase the rate of absorption but,
crucially, at the exact same time you will increase the rate of
So, if the gas is in thermodynamic equilibrium you won't get a
greenhouse effect - it won't store the energy.

In today's world of
settled science! and groupthink, Einstein, I'm
sure, would have recalled the famous attack on himself:

Germany in 1931.

wrong, one would have been enough."
His view of

surely have repeated his quote:
