    I like that. I should add it to my comments policy page. Of course noone else may know that I like it, if you exercise your self-defined right to simply delete this comment.

    I have a question about a comment you made on a “Watts Up With That” blog topic regarding “The effectiveness of CO2 as a greenhouse gas becomes ever more marginal with greater concentration” on May 8, 2013. You mentioned a sentence in Chapter 2 of the IPCC AR4 that basically admits the logarithmic relationship between increasing CO2 and temperature. I’m having trouble finding the sentence and wonder if you could tell me the subsection number in Chapter 2. I’m writing an Op-Ed for our local paper and trying to make the point that CO2 is not the problem.

    Many thanks,

    • If you are not able to find the first link (https://www.ipcc.ch/publications_and_data/ar4/wg1/en/ch2s2-3.html) on google with relevant search terms, do you really think you are qualified to write an op-ed?

      That the radiative forcing of CO2 is logarithmic is utterly uncontroversial except among the more deluded of the climate skeptics.

      But go ahead, make a fool out of yourself in your local paper

        Thank you for your snide response. I had already found subsection 2.3.1 but as you previously pointed out the crucial sentence was well buried in a parenthetical note. I’ve written many op-eds over many decades and so far haven’t been made a fool of. I don’t take anything for granted, I do my research and I try not to get personal.
