+++++ Great explanation of atmospheric layers with graph that should have been displayed in lectures 1 & 2 as advance organiser. Good animations of molecular chemistry. - - Oh dear, the old alarmist attitude to global warming (assuming it is bad at all), and the deliberately deceitful cut-off timescale graph for CO2 (to exaggerate the appearance of human impact), accompanied by a misleading interpretation which does not reflect the data on the graph. The similarly deceptive methane graph has NO timescale, which is a failure at elementary school math level. Evil-ution nonsense at the end is meaningless speculation to prop up the atheist RELIGION of evil-ution.
