Actually it’s my fault. I should have made it simpler. The question should have been we have no cure for the common cold so therefore one doesn’t exists. If you choose to, have a Merry Xmas and a Happy New Year.

<quoted text>My bad how do you know the temp was -20c? By what standards of measurements did you use and how was that instrument calibrated?
Why don't YOU read the IPCC AR4 REPORT ?

There is a LINK to it HERE:
http://www.topix.com/forum/news/global-warmin...

And you can read Trenberth's paper from the IPCC AR4 report (there is a link there).
Trenberth's Earth Energy Budget uses -20 deg C as an average atmospheric temperature.

Also there is a thing called a STANDARD ATMOSPHERE that ALL climatalogists use.

International Standard Atmosphere
The base temperature of the Troposphere at ground level is +15 deg C
The Tropopause at 11 km has a temperature of -56.5 deg C.
The average temperature of the Troposphere is -20.75 deg C
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/International_St...

Now don't be a LAZY AGW'er and READ ABOUT YOUR QUACK AGW SCIENCE before POSTING.

PS:
Any luck finding ANY MEASUREMENT that shows that a -20 deg C atmosphere can HEAT-UP a WARMER EARTH SURFACE of +15 deg C???

No? Well, that is because THEY DO NOT EXIST!

Any luck finding out that it dosen't exsist. Cut and paste isn't going to work. Is that International_ Standard Canadian or some other country you call "ObamaSUX"?

There simply is NO TEST EVER DONE where a COLDER EARTH CAN "HEAT-UP" A WARMER EARTH.

NONE, ZIP, NADA.....EVER!

EVERY MEASUREMENT, EVER DONE, PROVES THAT A COLDER EARTH CANNOT "HEAT-UP" A WARMER EARTH !!

IN FACT, EVERY MEASUREMENT EVER DONE CONCLUDES THAT THE 2nd LAW IS ABSOLUTELY ACCURATE!

“Second Law of Thermodynamics: It is NOT POSSIBLE for heat to flow from a colder body to a warmer body without any work having been done to accomplish this flow. Energy will not flow spontaneously from a low temperature object to a higher temperature object.”
http://hyperphysics.phy-astr.gsu.edu/hbase/th...

THAT INCLUDES EVERY MEASUREMENT DONE IN ANY THERMODYNAMICS CLASS,.....EVER.

What part of that don't you IDIOTS understand?

Now have a great Xmas and think about the Santa Claus FANTASY and the AGW FANTASY...while you IGNORE ALL SCIENCE and RUN FOR THE HILLS.

You AGW CULT MEMBERS are a real HOOT!

Take a good look at Detroit.

That's a picture of the USA in 4 more years of OBAMA.

Unhappy loonies are always an issue. They come in both genders. Hey the dirt has vanished. Yes?

Maybe, the 50% of people under 26 who don't have jobs in Spain, took it out on those that had no sympathy for them, because they do have financial support. We know that 'steenking piddling diddling middling mudling mudslinger dirtling' has no sympathy for anyone & is a slimy steenking filthy vile reprobate rooting(& rotting) racist pukey proud pig.

........ or since dirtling is also 'eart hling(alien has no affinity to Earth)', he may have returned to his star system, located beyond the alpha centauri system. We do know their biology is not like earthlings, thus his other names,'earthling-1' & 'earthling has no brain'.

Never mind all the laboratory measurement, the satellite observations and the observations from the earth by sophisticated instruments, the green house effect can't be real because a bit of canonical aluminium foil says so?

Geeze, after all these years you still can't post a single measurement where ANY colder body, like the atmosphere, can HEAT-UP a warmer body, like the Earth Surface.
Good heavens, it is Gordo of The Tar Sands, trolling on behalf of his carbonaceous employer and friends once again.

And, last time I checked, the sun was a decidedly "warm body".

From your article:
One of my favourite accompaniments to the Christmas feast (but maybe not everyone's) is red cabbage.

I love cabbage with a spiced corn beef. My wife's mother made the best dressing recently for the Thanksgiving turkey dinner . Might have to ask her to make some up for the Christmas dinner we will have over here. The dressing will taste as wonderful with the Christmas ham we will have. My wife's favorite wines are Spanish, not the sweeter ones grown further north.
