From Jennifer Marohasy's blog


Radiative equilibrium is one of the foundation stones of radiative forcing theory. But it is not a law of physics, only a rather archaic and untested supposition found in climatology textbooks alone.

Oh well so much for basic science

I had never heard of Jennifer Marohasy, so I looked up her blog.
Yikes. I also like the post on how arctic sea ice refuses to melt this summer.
Maybe she doesn't read the BBC http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/science/nature/7585645.stm

Reposition fantasy as "fact" and dismiss fact as "fantasy". She must know Carl Rove, no? (Sorry, I'll keep the snarky political commentary for the politics forum wink )
