This post examines how radiative forcing depends on CO2 concentrations in the atmosphere. In CO2 greenhouse demystified, we calculated the effective emission height where “thermal” phot… Source: Radiative Forcing of CO2 | Clive Best

The main focus in understanding Glacial cycles has been on the maximum summer insolation at 65N, yet prior to MPT (Mid Pleistocene Transition) all glaciations simply followed the obliquity cycle. T… Source: The Milankovitch Puzzle | Clive Best

The balancing of energy supply with demand on the UK National Grid is performed by ELEXON and as a result they provide a live snapshot of the power generated to match that demand  by fuel type. I h… Source: UK Power Generation 2017-18 | Clive Best

I have been struggling to understand exactly how increasing CO2 levels leads to global warming using  basic physics, and the story is complex. The trapping of certain bands of infrared radiation em… Source: Doubling CO2 and basic physics | Clive Best
