For less than $7 you can make an atmosphere simulator to see the future effects of CO2 increases said to be apocalyptic, will cause us to flee Earth for Mars, a planet with no air or water? This is what we are told by Federal government scientists who work with multi-million Dollar computer systems and programs that cannot predict the weather five days out! They flub every prediction they made!

Federal fear mongering bureaucrats base their anxiety on work done in the late 18th and early19th century. As one who has actually done this work for Quantitative Analysis 300 in college finding it difficult to the point of impossibility, and utterly reliable, have serious doubt about the validity of early work.

For openers the time of day is critical during the growing season as green plants change local CO2 concentrations greatly overnight when they produce CO2 while performing life functions. Turn the page…

“LinkedIn” is an on-line social media for professionals. To join you put in your credentials, college credits, degrees, etc. Of the 241 in my group 158 are physical scientists and I started with offers to send each an eight page paper entitled “CO2 Is Innocent” describing my simulator as a “climate change” test, a hot topic with them.

After sending 30 offers, with no takers, I shifted strategies, changed the title from “CO2 Is Innocent” to “Proving Climate Change,” which means testing it, cut the paper to four pages, omitted the conclusion, made it “open ended” and sent it with a polite invitation to review and try it. This version went to 128 scientists and engineers many of whom were Federal employees and academics in colleges.

I received one positive response from a professor and four nasty, angry reactions from four Federal employees so I am waiting for a four door Plymouth, two guys with hats, to pull into my driveway.

My one positive respondent did not write one word in his reply, but put a “thumbs up” figure in the text box. I wrote back to thank him and got another “thumbs up” figure, but not one word!

Three of the 128 came back with nasty diatribes questioning my sanity, science, pedigree, and legitimacy, accuse me of being anti-science, anti-American and “in the pay of big oil.” Two threw Jim Hansen’s “forcing,” “feedback loop” and “greenhouse gas” nonsense at me so I responded asking for references noting those terms are not in the literature, the “Handbook of Chemistry and Physics” published by the Chemical Rubber Company, any of their six journals, “Langes Handbook” or any reference for physical scientists. Nor will we find them anywhere else.

Only one responded to my answer so I backed up to run over him a second time pointing out that Hansen’s “forcing” concept and claim that “Man-made CO2 stays in the atmosphere 1,000 years” fly in the face of Frederich Wohler, the man who killed “Vitalism” in 1832 by demonstrating all molecules, regardless the source or synthesis, are the same. That did it. He quit, but it was only one of 158 that defended man-caused “global warming” or “climate change.” What does this all mean?

I hope most of these people realize man-caused “climate change” is only an idea and should be tested. However, my greatest fear of 29 years is that these people have been so poorly taught they do not believe science truths and facts are subject to test. Testing is our greatest tempering force and strength.

On this first blush it appears more than 99% of this group, which I believe is representative of this time, has lost the idea of questioning authority in a constructive way. The only detectable emotion I have seen from this group of adult scientists and engineers is hate for anyone who would challenge an idea with nothing more than money and power behind it. Laugh not. Fact and truth are greater. Money and power are transitory: here and gone. Fact and truth are forever.

The financial analysts at Forbes Magazine estimated the “global warming” fraud had cost our economy nearly $1 trillion a few years ago. It may have been astounding, but it was a “low-ball” figure when we consider this sample, which if true say that much of science education for 29 years appears to have been wasted.

The shadow of Dr. David Reismann is tall and casts long with “The Lonely Crowd” in mind, describing the post-war generation of Americans as people who would be “other directed.” I knew in 1950 he had it right and so we are.

Adrian Vance

Trained as a science teacher, with eight years classroom experience, he has been writing professionally since the age of 15. He was the youngest person to be published in Journal of the Illinois Academy of Science at 17 as a result of a paper he wrote suggesting a revision in the science teaching curriculum. Publication was accidental as his teacher headed the selection committee and his paper was sent to the printer in error. Nonetheless, it received positive response. It proposed teaching General Science, then Physics followed by Chemistry with Biology in the senior year given the then new molecular focus in Biology.
During his college years he worked on the school newspaper, primarily as a photographer and did an occasional feature, some of which caused him to be called to the Dean’s office. “You don’t like the way we do things here?” was the usual opening remark followed by the expected suggestion.
After his third year, exhausted and without direction, he left for one year, but returned, when Sputnik and Admiral Rickover’s books documented a crisis in American education. He felt called to teach and completed a B.S. in Physical Science at Illinois State University with a major in chemistry, minor in biology, near minors physics and education. He did graduate work in both Illinois and California completing a California Life Diploma teaching credential in 1962.
While teaching he saw many needs and opportunities in educational publishing so he wrote and produced educational materials, primarily filmstrips and sound recordings. He also wrote for photographic magazines as film work put him in touch with many photographic and production problems. He has 325 screen credits in educational, industrial film and filmstrip as a writer-producer. In 1976 he won the Learning Magazine “Best of the Year” award for his “You in the Universe” filmstrip series and the New York Film and Television Festival Silver Medal for “An Introduction to Cells” filmstrip series.
For a partial database of Adrian’s publications please click on and you will see them listed by series title and publisher. Each series title included four to 30 filmstrips and all are not fully listed in this database. The grand total is over 800.
Over that 30 years Mr. Vance also wrote other material: two books, published in New York: “UFO’s: The Eye and the Camera” for Barlenmir House and “Audiovisual Production” for Amphoto Books. He wrote and illustrated over 100 features and columns for photography magazines. He was a Founding Contributing Editor for Peterson’s PhotoGraphic Magazine and the West Coast Editor of Popular Photography from 1974 to 1978, writing a monthly column for the magazine. As a result of underwater photography work he contributed to SKIN DIVER magazine in the 70’s. His “Timing Waves to Enter The Sea” article, first appearing in SKIN DIVER, is now a chapter in a classified U.S. Navy Seals training manual.
“UFO’s, The Eye and the Camera” documents his “Two channel information theory for the analysis of events simultaneously seen and photographed.” It is the first comparative analysis of vision and photography written with the idea of combining information from both sources into a single analysis that can be used scientifically and forensically.
Mr. Vance is also credited with solving the mystery of how complete maps of Earth were drawn in antiquity and he rediscovered Captain Cook’s secret method of locating Pacific islands so well their positions have only recently been improved. He is cited with discovering the method in the seventh edition of “The Maps of the Ancient Sea Kings,” by Dr. Charles Hapgood and he later contributed to a definitive article on cartography in antiquity for The Smithsonian Magazine as they confirmed his method.
On February 19, 1976 Mr. Vance got a “Certificate of Appreciation” award from the Los Angeles Police Department “in grateful recognition of his generosity in make available to officers of this Department the talents and training of his German Shepherd, Boris. The ready willingness of Mr. Adrian Vance to become involved and to make available his valuable dog in a potentially hazardous situation deserves the gratitude and approbation of the entire Los Angeles Police Department.” This incident was critical to the LAPD administration’s realization that trained dogs could be of value in police work and they are now employed by the LAPD.
When the computer replaced film the school market audio-visual field he switched horses at full gallop and produced 460 computer educational disk systems for the Apple II computer over 15 years. During that time he became a professional broadcaster in the 90’s to promote the State Water bond issue in Santa Barbara, California as he felt it was critical for the town. He was publicly credited for having been one of the top ten reasons the measure passed thanks to his book “Drought in Paradise” and radio work.
The collapse of his software business when Apple Computer discontinued the “II” machine line in 1995 crystallized the failure of his second marriage. With no clear direction in the school market supplemental materials field he sought a career in broadcasting in Las Vegas, Nevada doing shows on both KDWN and KXNT. This was unsatisfying due to the “star” economics of commercial radio where a few performers make millions and everyone else starves.
Mr. Vance has also been a day trader, strategist, system developer and author on the equities markets and trading. He now trades stock, land and develops residential property. His website and trading information service, “The Stock Surfer” was a leading Internet service for seven years. He has been developing “The Young Americans” series of Young Adult novels promoting conservative values as well as his personal memoir, “A Long Way From Normal.” You can buy Adrian Vance’ books or downloads at
December 21, 2010 he was awarded US. Patent 7,855,061 for his “Fuel Farm” that makes a gasoline equivalent 100 Octane fuel, butanol, from CO2, water and sunlight with algae and bacteria. You can see the full disclosure websites regarding his inventions at: and
