Hehe. No. I'm not knowledgable enough about the subject to argue it but I don't think the inside of your car and the Earth's atmosphere is a fair comparison. }:-)

Actually, it is an excellent example. Think of your car's windshield much like you think of the Earth's atmosphere. The rays from the sun come in the form of short rays. Those short rays are able to pass through the Earth's atmosphere. There are some that get absorbed but you get the point. O.K. Well, these short rays are also able to pass through your windshield. Once these rays hit something (ie. the Earth's surface, the inside of your car, etc.), they are scattered and reflected. This causes these short waves to become long waves. These long waves are unable to pass back through the Earth's atmosphere or, in this example, your car's windshield. Basically, the heat is trapped as long wave energy within the membrane that it originally passed through as short wave energy. That's why if you park your car in the sun on a really cold day, it is sometimes warm inside.

Hope this makes sense. I tried to simplify it so it would be easier to understand.

I love it ;-D ;-D

And I knew it was coming cause I am good at Weather.

Yesterday While I was in Central Park It was 63 degrees, could have worn shorts.


Today in the Park is a Winter Wonderland!

Now its 19 degrees.

I actually love the snow and cold weather ;-D

One problem though: Whoever measured the snow in the park is a moron. They are reporting 1.5 inches there, when there is clealy over 3 inches.

The Winds are super-intense. All the Snow is blowing around like Crazy

I'm not arguing the existence of the greenhouse effect. Without it the Earth wouldn't be warm enough for us to live. But global warming is the "theory" that we are unaturally strengthening the greenhouse effect. :-)
