Fixing the basic AGW calcs II

This comment was left in the thread of Judith Curry’s blog. It is an explanation of the problems introduced when the simple black body sphere estimate for basic forcing is not used. While Tomas makes the point that the solution is nonsense, these things can still be estimated and do have uses so I’m not as dismissive as he of the idea, however on the complexity of the problem we agree. So when people say 33 C from global warming gasses, you have to wonder where they got their facts or if they understand them. The 33C value is just an estimate which is likely to be a poor quality one.
