In infrared spectroscopy, units called wavenumbers are normally used to denote different types of light.

But eh Einstein, since your so good at "splaining" embarrasing and complicated "facts", could you "splain" me, the humble flat Earth believer, why there is an "oil guy" at the head of the IPCC? Is it for the pardon of his past sin agains mother Earth?
Ok so you apparently work in infrared spectroscopy then, and yet you are, in your own words, "mystified" by the use of wavenumber, which happens to be the standard unit:
This is great too: Ok so the head of the IPCC is an “oil guy” because he served on numerous energy boards (from fossil fuels to renewables) in his native India over the course of his long career. Would you care to explain then the supposed end game behind an oil guy trying to eliminate the world’s dependence on oil? Even your conspiracies don’t make sense.
Many look to algae as the renewable resource to win the battle over global warming, and provide the U.S. with energy security. In reality, algae hold great promise as a resource that, if developed correctly, could become a sustainable biomass source for energy and fuels.
Well guess what - in the sort of atmospheric physics we are dealing with here - it starts in the spectroscopy lab, and ends in the satellite data previously posted.
