David Coe posted a draft paper here back in January on the IR absorptive characteristics of “greenhouse” gases. His paper has now been published by the IJAOS:

More about the author:

David Coe is a physicist, having read physics at Oxford back in the sixties. His day job for the last 20+ years has been developing a range of sensors for the monitoring of gaseous emissions to atmosphere using infra-red absorption spectroscopy. He thus has not only some knowledge in this area but have access to a database of molecular absorption spectra for most common gases, particularly CO2 and H2O. He is the founding director of the company Codel International Ltd, based in Bakewell, Derbyshire.

If David is right, it would have huge implications, as a doubling of carbon dioxide emissions at current rates would take us well into the 22ndC, and the resulting half degree warming would be barely noticeable.

via NOT A LOT OF PEOPLE KNOW THAT
