### Mathematical Proof that Al Gore Lies

Climate Change alarmists bandy about graphs and charts and what-not in an attempt to confuse regular folks. They know that you are less likely to challenge them if they have something that looks like empirical proof that they are right. It doesn’t really have to *be *proof, it just has to *look like* proof. The problem is that science is so complicated that it’s hard to know what’s good evidence and what isn’t. Lay persons have little chance of realistically evaluating the data on Climate Change, so the scientists are free to lie *as much as they want*.

Well, that’s *about to change*. I have proof that Climate Change is not man-made (or *anthropogenic*), and *my* proof is easy for *anyone *to evaluate. All it takes is a little high school geometry and the inclination to calculate the volume of the atmosphere.

The formula for the volume of a sphere is 4/3·pi·r^{3}. The Earth isn’t a perfect sphere (more of an oblate spheroid), but we can use its average radius, which is about 4058.77 miles. The boundary between the atmosphere and outer space (called the Kármán Line) is 100 km above the Earth. In *real* units that’s about 62.14 miles. So the radius of the Earth *plus the atmosphere* is 4120.91 miles, and the math is easy. Calculate the volume of the Earth plus the atmosphere (293,135,217,747 cubic miles), subtract the volume of the Earth (280,073,445,588 cubic miles) and you get the volume of the atmosphere (13,061,772,158 cubic miles). That’s a huge number, but let’s put that in perspective. The most recent U.S. Census Bureau estimate of the world population is 6,807,100,000 people. That means that each and every one of us on Earth has almost two cubic miles of atmosphere all to ourselves. That’s over *2.1 trillion gallons per person*. I don’t know about you, but I don’t think that I could have much of an effect on 2.1 trillion gallons of atmosphere. Maybe Al Gore’s mansion can make a dent, but not my SUV.

So you can see that, although the Earth may be (ever so slowly) warming, it can hardly be the fault of mankind. It’s clearly natural. There’s just *too much atmosphere* and not enough of *us*.
