US Naval Research Lab models atmospheric temperatures without using CO2
Interesting, the US Naval Research Laboratory's empirical, global model of the Earth’s atmospheric temperature profile from ground to space is based only upon atmospheric mass densities, solar flux, and molecular composition sans CO2, with no input or consideration of CO2 levels or CO2 'radiative forcing'. Could it possibly be that atmospheric mass, pressure, gravity and solar flux determine the temperature profile of the atmosphere, not radiative forcing from CO2?
