According to Jim Steele’s own blog: “I am an ecologist ..” – I like to add, an ecologist who actually don’t understand the science!
This sentence proves he doesn’t understand the topic: ” .. It is not just a matter of how much energy increasing CO2 redirects towards the surface ..” That is not relevant due to the fact that the density of the lower part of the Troposphere is actually too dense, IR radiation do not radiate freely, therefore it can not radiate back to where it came from to warm up its own heat source further.
He is basing his theories on FAKE science that doesn’t reflect the real world, a mathematical depiction of the world that is both destorted and lack correlations with reality, the world is for example not flat! Ref.: Earth’s Thermodynamic Energy Budget

It is not just a matter of how much energy increasing CO2 redirects towards the surface but how long it is trapped for that determines greenhouse gases’ warming effect. The contributions from 3 heat trapping mechanisms are examined: Greenhouse gases, heat domes and ocean barrier layers and how they contribute average global temperature and extreme weather
