I’d actually written this as a reply on Dr. Roy Spencer’s Blog but there seemed some sort of enfarction and the beauty of having your own is I can just post it here…

“And I still think a photon emitted by a cool object can be absorbed by a warmer object but the greater flux in the opposite direction means that the warm object heats the cool object anyway. But I wasn’t going to go there.”

Luv it. We Jacks of all trades gotta stick together.When you don’t understand something, all you have is statistics.

I mean really, you think a photon really CARES? Or you think the higher Pauling vibrational state of the warmer body actually repels the photon?

Well, I don’t know either, but this is the state of our understanding of the greenhouse effect in our atmosphere.
