The title of [[Blog - apologia of profound confusion]] should have the meaning that it is good to be confused, because that means that one is asking the important questions. I'm not sure if the connotations of the involved words capture that meaning :-)

I'n not sure if it is a wise idea to comment on

* Joseph E. Postma: Understanding the Thermodynamic Atmosphere Effect

However, Posma's paper is rather new (March 2011), he has academic credentials and it also contains a lot of misleading and wrong statements. Maybe I could use this as input to explain some concepts in a little bit more detail.

Has anyone else written a comment on this paper? Somehow I have a gut feeling that a lot of people who could comment on it won't bother to do so.
