Default Re: An Occasion of Sin (Mark Schmitt & Tim Carney)

It is not I who is making the claim that the last decade or so of non existent warming is due to the Chinese burning of coal; it comes from the camp of the true believers. Any port in a storm I guess. I would like to point out a minor contradiction. You make the claim "The "equilibrium residence time"* for common aerosols in the troposphere ranges from a few weeks to two years. For CO2 it is centuries." yet the quoted source places it in the many decades range, which I suppose could run into centuries but then why not say centuries. I have seen other that placed the half life of CO2 in the troposphere as short as 5 years but then again there must be some scientific consensus out there over this minor detail.
