    Our cooling world

    http://www.climateaudit.org/?p=2698#comment-210416 To put this in perspective the upward temperature trend over the last centaury was only 0.6 degrees celsius. Of course I don’t claim this is significant given it is only a comparison of two months.

    I predict the temperature will change and it will somehow be because of man. lol

    If the curves are simulations wouldn't you at least initialize it so that it matches up with the temperature at the start of the time series? Also you can get a better fit to the data if you use some kind of predictor correcter technique like a Kalman filter. Maybe sometime I'll try to verify...

    Well, it's late but I wonder if we can derive an expression for the heat capacity which is a function both of frequency and the input amplitude. Consider the steady state solution for an ocean of infinite depth. Since warm water rises and the ocean is heated from the top perhaps conduction is...

    My guess would be that it is easier to distinguish short term signals from noise then it is to distinguish long term signals from noise. Clearly the temperature at the bottom of the ocean is going to respond much slower then the temperature near the surface of the ocean. As a consequence the low...

    Can you explain that first graph to me. It looks rather bazaar. As for the second graph what are the three scenarios and why do they diverge so much at the end of the run.

    "Contrary to initial expectations of the team at Real Climate, Tamino’s criticism, or James Annan’s agreement with Tamino’s criticism, after accounting for measurement uncertainty in field data, the extremely simplified model for the climate system suggested by Schwartz 2007 describes the...

    I'm glad we agree on something. We share vastly different opinions on what constitutes good science. To me complex computer models are in part fantasy because they over fit the data. How do you validate a model with countless internal parameters and initial conditions. What I like about...

    If it was our fault at 0.6 degrees per century it would take us 1000 years to put enough carbon to in the air to stop the next ice age. Lets go for it I don't want to see Toronto under ice. http://www.climateaudit.org/?p=1110

    My statements aren’t contradictory. I said pressure broadening exists but I don’t think it is significant. You understanding is correct. There will be more CO2 where the pressure is higher. Thus the higher up in atmosphere the less significant the pressure broadening will be. I contented...

    Global Warming ‘Greatest Scam in History’

    I highly doubt any significant spectral broadening of the CO2 absorption bands is unaccounted for. When I was at university I remember a physics teacher telling me that pressure broadening is only significant where there is a lot of pressure like in a sun. I think he said the same thing about...

    I think what Tonington may be getting at is that CO2 captures the infrared light in the lower atmosphere when it has only traveled 10 m but in the upper atmoshper the black body radiation re-emitted will travel much further before being re-absorbed because the concentration of CO2 is lower.

    Pressure broadening is more significant at higher pressure then lower pressure. I think that aside from natural bordering the only effect that might be significant is Doppler broadening but that might be more of a high temperature phanominom. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spectral_line

    Global Warming ‘Greatest Scam in History’

    May I suggest that if the absorption is different at different altitudes it is due to gas stratification. That is the absorption is different at different altitudes because the gas composition of the atmosphere is different at different altitudes and not because the pressure change in the earth...
