Examples

For example, this is the justification for using the “0.85 W/m2 ±0.15W/m2″ as his result in the “smoking gun” paper.

But in their results, the change in sensible + latent heat losses is said to be 2.2 W/m2, which is more than the change in total downwelling radiation.

Changes in solar irradiance since 1750 are estimated to cause a radiative forcing of +0.12 W/m2, which is less than half the estimate given in the TAR 3rd assessment report.

The change in (low) cloud cover over the tropics over the same period gives a change in sunlight hitting the surface of 23 W/m2, that is one order of magnitude higher than the influence of the increase in CO2 (other GHGs have near no increase in this period).

For a 2 shell greenhouse (the simplest model that can provide enough energy to match the known global energy balance) this would be three times the incoming radiation, or 3 x ~235 w/m2, which is ~705 w/m2 or 63°C (145°F).

· The structure should be capable of supporting up to 40 kg/m2, which is the weight of the heaviest material  reed.

Variety m1 is supposed to have produced two varieties, namely m2 and s2, differing from each other, and more considerably from their common parent (A).

In comparison, changes in solar irradiance since are estimated to have caused a small radiative forcing of +0.12 [+0.06 to+0. 30] W/m2, which is less than half the estimate given in the TAR.
