what is the greenhouse effect
What is the “greenhouse effect”?

Like the sun, the Earth also emits radiation. It is much cooler than the sun, though, so it emits in the infrared, just like a person, a cat, or any other body. Some of that infrared energy may be absorbed by molecules in the atmosphere, affecting the global energy balance.

slide7

Venus has an atmosphere with more than 90% CO2. It also has sulfuric acid clouds. Its planetary greenhouse effect is about 500°C (the atmosphere raises the temperature by that much).

Earth has an atmosphere with much less CO2 than Venus. The greenhouse effect raises its average temperature by about 30°C.

The greenhouse effect is basic physics and it is real. What about greenhouse warming?

halocarbon emissions continued
Halocarbon Emissions, continued

Combined CO2-equivalent emissions from halocarbons:

~7.5 Gt near 1990, about 33% of that year\'s CO2 emissions from global fossil fuel burning

~2.5 Gt near 2000, about 10% of that year’s CO2 emissions from global fossil fuel burning

Figure 5. These images show declining sea ice age, which indicates a thinning Arctic sea ice cover more vulnerable to melting in summer. Ice older than two years now accounts for less than 10% of the ice cover.

Cloud changes: the biggest cause of prediction uncertainty

Global warming will change cloud warming and cooling characteristics.

This will exert a powerful feedback on climate change,

but the feedback projected varies between models.

technology perspective1
Technology Perspective
  • Auto Air Conditioning - continued
    • Counter trend is increasing energy efficiency, fuel cells
      • Reduced waste energy
      • 134a inefficient in heat pumps
    • Focus on service practices
    • US EPA granting mileage “credits” for using lower GWP a/c fluids
technology perspective2
Technology Perspective
  • Commercial Air Conditioning
    • Chillers historically HCFC-123 about 55-75% in North America
      • Less in ROW
      • The rest is HFC-134a
      • Now some movement toward HFO-1233ze
    • Other Commercial - < 50 Tons
      • US clear direction to R-410A scroll’s
      • Japan – Probably all R-410A >50T. about 50:50 134a:123 and moving toward R-410A >50T
      • HFC-32 in VFR systems
technology perspective3
Technology Perspective
  • Residential A/C & Heat Pumps
    • Europe/Japan – slow but gradual acceptance R-410A, moving from R-407C
    • North America 15-20% R-410A – but growing
    • Some European/Developing Countries – hydrocarbons in small charge systems
    • Middle East has major problem – high pressure with R-410A at 50o C ambient
    • Installed base mostly HCFC-22
    • Companies beginning to promote HFO/HFC blends
technology perspective4
Technology Perspective
  • Domestic Refrigeration
    • Market is fragmenting
    • Appliance – Europe & International moving to HC’s
      • North America/Japan using HFCs 134a, 245fa, HCs in Mexico and Japan
      • EPA has approved GE Monogram line with HCs – not being marketed as yet
      • Developing Countries increasingly moving to HCs
        • Influenced by European bilateral funding

technology perspective5
Technology Perspective
  • Commercial Refrigeration(vending, rack, ice machines)
    • North America/Japan using HFC-134a, R-404A (ice), R-507 (mostly HCFC-22 in use)
    • Europe –HFC-134a dominant, some HCs/ammonia indirect
      • mostly HCFC-22 in use
      • Some R-404a in new systems
      • Government promoted CO2 cascade systems in supermarkets, including US
      • R-22D and R-427A considered for retrofits
      • Article 5 countries – mostly HCFC-22
    • Multinational Corporations Coca Cola, et.al. slowing moving toward CO2
