Thankyou for your reply, and my apologies for the late response.

I read it with interest. Unfortunately, it doesn't deal with any of the
factors mentioned, or present a detailed explanation of the argument or the
crucial calculations backing the assumptions behind temperature calculations
as they relate to c02, so I therefore assume that they are not in the public
domain.

Sincerely

Scott

Sincerely

Scott,
Have you looked at the 2007 IPCC Report - especially Chapter 2
on Radiative Forcing?

Cheers
