I started out modifying my AGW quantization wiki for the 'it's not us' rebuttal, but realized my 'fingerprints of AGW' wiki would be more appropriate, and the quantization would work better for 'CO2 effect is weak'.

So now I went back and adapted the fingerprints wiki for the Advanced 'it's not us' rebuttal.  I had a weird formatting problem though - for some reason halfway through it put all my fonts in italics and I can't seem to turn it off.  I only wanted the quotes in italics.

There is an unfortunate glitch with this WYSIWYG editor where sometimes it can just go rampant with italic em tags. In those cases, what I do is to click the HTML icon, copy all the HTML code into a text editor, do a search/replace to remove all instance of the em tag. Then copy and paste it back into the HTML editor. This gets rid of all italics, lets you start over.

Your rebuttal looks great. I've just tweaked the HTML a little, added blockquotes for all your excerpts. I've tried to get blockquotes into the WYSIWYG system but can't get it to work so for now, have to do it in the raw HTML.

So italics is the 'em' tag?  I assumed it would be an 'i' tag (I'm semi-HTML-illiterate, only programmed in it briefly about 13 years ago).  I saw all those 'em' tags but assumed they were something else.

Thanks for cleaning it up - looks much better now.  Maybe tomorrow after we publish the 'CO2 effect is weak' rebuttal, we can make this one 'live' and I'll get some Yahoo feedback on it again.

I've made it live so you can get Yahoo feedback whenever you like:

Feel free to continue tweaking. Once you're happy with it, again, let me know and I'll blog post it.

I'm happy with this one.  I added a sub-section on decreased upward longwave radiation.  Have a look, maybe we can do a blog post for this one tomorrow?

Sounds like a great idea. I think what I'll do is post a basic rebuttal tonight, then post your advanced rebuttal tomorrow morning (if I get the time to get on the computer before we go out - a family outting whale watching tomorrow).

This is a tour-de-force post, Dana, really great work!

2010-09-03 13:52:13sounds good

Thanks John, I've enjoyed doing it.  This weekend I'll tackle climate sensitivity.

My family went whale watching once, but didn't spot any.  I hope you have better luck!
