Members of Hendersonville City Council voted themselves their Second Amendment right to pack heat in buildings forbidding concealed carry.
If burning 1 gram of carbon generates 7.9 kcal, and the earth’s temperature has increased 0.8K/century due to man-made carbon emissions; how much heat must they pack, in 100-percent insulated containers, each year, to stave off global warming over the next decade? Estimate the specific heat of air at 1kJ/kgK and the atmospheric mass for the planet at 5.3 x 10^18 kg.
