Lindzen and Choi – Nova repeats old mistakes

April 8, 2012

Nova posts another piece of science that has already been debunked. In her article “Satellites show a warmer earth is releasing extra energy to space” Nova relies on the work of Lindzen and Choi (2009), without bothering to mention that their work has been repeatedly debunked.

Does Nova do this intentionally (anyone familiar with the climate debate knows of Dessler’s rebuttal) – or is she simply ignorant?

For more detail on what Lindzen & Choi do wrong, see Dessler 2011 or Trenberth et al. 2011
