Quote:Donald L. Klipstein, “No Frank, the evidence is the evidence period.”

How do you know what the evidence means without an explanatory physical theory, Donald?

You wrote, “We know the relationship between forcing and temperature.”


By what quantitative physical theory of climate?

What’s the relationship between forcing and cloud cover, Donald?

What’s the relationship between forcing and precipitation?

What’s the relationship between forcing and convection?

What’s the relationship between forcing and cloud type?

No one knows the answer to any of those questions, including that between forcing and air temperature.

But you need to know those answers to those questions, to know how the climate responds to CO2 forcing.

As to Milankovitch cycles, the orbital forcing changes range from 40 W/m^2 to 100 W/m^2; orders of magnitude larger than any possible effect of CO2.

Annual CO2 forcing is two orders of magnitude below the lower limit resolution of climate models. No one can know how the climate responds to it.

But all we need to do is ask you, right Donald? You know all the answers, just by intuition.
