We employed a simple zero-dimensional Energy Balance Model (“EBM”—see references 1 through 5 below) of the form
C dT/dt = S(1-a)/4 + FGHG –A–B T + w(t)
to model the forced response of the climate to estimate natural and anthropogenic radiative forcing.
An actual scientist would compare his assumptions about CO2 sensitivity versus measured data, and realize that his assumptions are wildly off-base. But Mikey apparently doesn’t come in that category.
