A forthcoming paper published in Progress in Physics has important implications for the 'basic physics' of climate change. Physicist Dr. Pierre-Marie Robitaille's paper(s) show the assumption that greenhouse gases and other non-blackbody materials follow the blackbody laws of Kirchhoff, Planck, and Stefan-Boltzmann is incorrect, that the laws and constants of Planck and Boltzmann are not universal and widely vary by material or different gases. Dr. Robitaille demonstrates CO2 and water vapor act in the opposite manner of actual blackbodies [climate scientists falsely assume greenhouse gases act as true blackbodies], demonstrating decreasing emissivity with increases in temperature. True blackbodies instead increase emissivity to the 4th power of temperature, and thus the blackbody laws of Kirchhoff, Planck, and Stefan-Boltzmann only apply to true blackbodies, not greenhouse gases or most other materials. The significance to the radiative 'greenhouse effect' is that the climate is less sensitive to both CO2 and water vapor since both are less 'greenhouse-like' emitters and absorbers of IR radiation as temperatures increase.
