    Good question.“Because of the short response time of the climate system toperturbations, the climate system may be considered in near steady state to applied forcings and hence, within the linear forcing-response model, the change in temperature over a given time period may be apportioned to the several forcings.”God, it’s been my dream to be able to write like that.

    I’ll have to read this closer, but 17 with a sigma of 7 is how statisticians say, “No idea, really.”Also, nobody cares about thermodynamic sensitivity. They care about environmental sensitivity, and I’m not sure the single-compartment energy balance model can tell us much about whether the environment is unreasonably sensitive.
