So true... My ISP does not offer Newsgroups via DSL. Here is sit,
trying to communicate via dialup, using OS2, and a newsreader that
does no spellchecking

.I find Thermodynamics much more well thought out than religious
teachings from the Catholic or Anthropogenic Church. The
nonsense of AGW has now entered engineering textbooks.

See "A Heat Transfer Textbook, 4th Edition" by John H
Lienhard V and John H Lienhard IV, Dover Publications Inc.
2011. Part IV on Thermal Radiation Heat Transfer. On pp
535-537 has the most egregious explanation of Kirchoff's
Law of radiation.

"Kirchoff's law states that a body in thermodynamic equilibrium
emits as much energy as it absorbs in each direction and at
each wavelength" and continues "if this were not so, for
example a body might absorb more energy than it emits in one

direction theta1 and might emit more energy than it absorbs
in another direction theta2"., "The body would thus pump heat

out of its surroundings from the first direction theta1, and into
its surroundings in the second direction theta2." "Since
whatever matter in the first direction would be refrigerated
without any work input, the Second Law of Thermodynamics
would be violated,"...

I want my money back and compensation for being
tasked to read such Religious nonsense!.

From the back cover:
"This introduction to heat transfer offers advanced undergraduate
and graduate engineering students a solid foundation in the subjects
of conduction, convection, radiation, and phase-change," ...

This is what Amazon advertised, and the only reason
I bought this damned choir book.

"Thermodynamics for Dummies", is quite good!!
