Emergent Thermal Homeostasis: a new paradigm for e-pluribus-unum climate stability

Models of global climate warming from CO2 often frame the earth's temperature as the consequence of a single simple physical system. Radiative balance determines temperature and CO2 perturbs that balance in the direction of warming. End of story. With, of course, an important caveat of "everything else being equal". Envisioning the role of IR-active gasses … Continue reading Emergent Thermal Homeostasis: a new paradigm for e-pluribus-unum climate stability
