Global annualized temperature – "full of [snip] up to their eyebrows"

Guest Post by Dr. Robert Brown, Physics Dept. Duke University [elevated from comments] Dr. Brown mentions “global temperature” several times. I’d like to know what he thinks of this. Dr. Brown thinks that this is a very nice piece of work, and is precisely the reason that he said that anybody who claims to know…

Earth's baseline black-body model – "a damn hard problem"

By Robert G. Brown, Duke University (elevated from a WUWT comment) I spent what little of last night that I semi-slept in a learning-dream state chewing over Caballero’s book and radiative transfer, and came to two insights. First, the baseline black-body model (that leads to T_b = 255K) is physically terrible, as a baseline. It…

The paper was clever and wise…and made a lot of sense. Clearly Mikael knows a lot about…
