Fabrication of the "CO2-Climate Problem"

The scientific basis of CO2 alarmism is supposed to be the following spectrum of "downwelling longwave radiation DLR" presented as a "product" of the Atmospheric Emitted Radiance Interferometer AERI:

The part of the spectrum marked in red is connected to the absorptivity/emissivity around wavenumber 667 and 2200 of CO2, with that around 667 most prominent. The area under the curve represents the DLR or "back radiation" and we see that area under the CO2 part is almost as big as that under H2O as if the trace gas CO2 has the same warming effect as water vapor.

In a sequence of recent posts on DLR I have decoded the spectrum understanding that it is a fabricated "product" of the team behind AERI from temperature measurements by the interferometer: The sensitive interferometer thermometer measures the temperature of a tiny fraction of CO2 around wave number 667 and the AERI team then fabricates a major warming effect of the atmosphere from the presence of CO2 as the red part of the curve associated with CO2.

Seeking a history of AERI leads back to the project SPECTRE Experiment shaped by ICRCCM sponsored by the US Department of Energy DOE and and the World Meteorological Organization, with ICRCCM having a "role as lead agency for investigating the CO2-climate problem". The starting point of SPECTRE was identification by ICRCCM (1988) that measurements of DLR could vary with 30-70 W/m2 out of a total of 200 - 400 W/m2, while the estimated impact of CO2 could be at most 4 W/m2.

To prove that the "CO2-climate problem" was a real problem, better instruments were obviously needed, and so the SPECTRE Experiment got started and eventually produced radiance spectra like that above with a major role given to CO2. As with AERI the SPECTRE team measured temperatures but fabricated spectra, according to the wish of the contractor: Undeniable instrumental evidence of the reality of the "CO2-climate problem", marked in red to emphasize the alarm.
