  1. ‘Simple Physics’?!
    “Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler.” – Albert Einstein
    Mixing air and water vapor is ‘simple physics’.
    Taking the water vapor back out of the air as precipitation is not.

  2. What I do not understand about these master minds is that on the one hand they quote records going back nearly 100 years that were more extreme than the recent events and then go on to claim that man made global warming and CO2 are to blame ‘BUT’ they never take the time to expound as to why the records of 100 years ago were established – was it too many coal fired ocean liners causing it – or what. No wonder more and more skeptics such as myself take no notice of what these pumped up doomsdayers have to say!

  3. hmm, wonder was his thoughts would be on these storms with heavy rain

  4. “Simple” physics is dead right.

    The “simple” model of the greenhouse effect states that the atmospheric “layer” radiates the same radiation as the incoming solar radiation – each has a value of 239.7 Watts per square metre.

    As you can see this must be right because it is taught in Universities !

    http://www.atmos.washington.edu/2002Q4/211/notes_greenhouse.html

    As you can see this must be right because it is taught in Universities !

    Trenberth et al claim it is more than double – 168 solar versus 324 “back radiation” from GHGs.

    As you can see this must be right because it was quoted by the IPCC !

    http://www.ipcc.ch/publications_and_data/ar4/wg1/en/faq-1-1.html

    Apparently people who quote this junk science fail to recognise that they are really claiming that the radiation from “greenhouse gases” has EQUAL or GREATER heating power than sunlight – this is explicitly stated in the University lecture and the “Energy Budget”.

    The question then remains – what is the as yet unexplained reason that none of the attributes of sunlight – starting fires, ejecting electrons from silica molecules to generate electricity, powering solar thermal power stations – seem to be associated with atmospheric “back radiation” from “Greenhouse gases” /

    Obviously all the experts seem to agree they have at least equal heating power – perhaps we just need a bit more money to develop new technologies to generate power 24 hours a day from this radiation instead of the current miserly few hours of sunlight !
