Technical Rating: star
Richard Lindzen, a professor of meteorology, proposes that the Earth has an adaptive infrared iris - a built in "check-and-balance" mechanism that effectively counters global warming. This effect is not included in climate models.



Climate Model Cloud Simulations

Technical Rating: star
The authors compared basic cloud climatologies from ten atmospheric general circulation models with satellite measurements. They reports that "differences of seasonal amplitudes among the models and satellite measurements can reach several hundred percent."
