Climate Sensitivity of the Earth to Solar Radiation and Climate Models

David H. Douglass [douglass@pas.rochester.edu] and B. David Clader, University of Rochester, New York

An update on the Climate Sensitivity of the Earth to Solar Radiation previously published by Douglass and Clader will be presented. The disparity between the surface and upper atmospheric temperatures will also be discussed as well as the disagreement of the state-of the-art general climate models with the observations.
