Looking good!  :thumb:


You (and our readers) may be interested in some historical background.

Rudolf Geiger published his 'Climate Near The Ground' in German, 1927, updated 1941.  It was updated again in 1950 and also translated into English.  In the first chapter the topic of heat balance is covered, with an excellent graphic on page 4 which bears more than a passing resemblance to Trenberth's graphics.

I like to include historic data in my articles to show that most of the topics raised by pseudo skeptics were being discussed by genuine scientists before these deniers were even born.


btw, the book also discusses experiments with paint by various researchers.  You know, the stuff on Stevenson screens which can affect temperature readings as Watts "discovered" in 2007. :-)

Cheers Patrick. I had never heard of Geiger before. I made sure I had no reference to Trenberth's graphic because, as sure as bears shit in the woods, it would encourage thread derailment.
