This is a very important post and I would encourage those who have a different point of view to engage in a constructive exchange of ideas. The claim that “greenhouse” warming has resulted in a ~33°C temperature increase is one pillar of the foundation upon which claims of catastrophic warming caused by greenhouse gasses is built. Is the CO2 “greenhouse” effect the best explanation for the ~33°C temperature difference? I think not.
“A recent series of Hockey Schtick posts
- Derivation of the entire 33°C greenhouse effect without radiative forcing from greenhouse gases
- Derivation of the effective radiating height & entire 33°C greenhouse effect without radiative forcing from greenhouse gases
- Why greenhouse gas radiative forcing doesn’t explain Earth’s energy budget
have derived the entire ~33°C greenhouse effect as a consequence of gravitational forcing rather than radiative forcing from greenhouse gases, and entirely independent of radiative forcing from greenhouse gases.“ click here for the full post.
