I’m sure WUWT readers will recall this excellent guest post at WUWT just over one year ago:

The thunderstorm thermostat hypothesis: How clouds and thunderstorms control the Earth’s temperature
The Thunderstorm Thermostat Hypothesis is the hypothesis that tropical clouds and thunderstorms actively regulate the temperature of the earth. This keeps the earth at an equilibrium temperature regardless of changes in the forcings. Several kinds of evidence are presented to establish and elucidate the Thermostat Hypothesis-historical temperature stability of the Earth, theoretical considerations, satellite photos, and a description of the equilibrium mechanism.
See it here, PDF is available (£18.00 worthwhile to support E&E in my opinion). Or, read the WUWT version here:
