I would like to share the following open letter.
Professor Anastasios Tsonis,
We have exchanged a few emails and I must say I am very disappointed by your evasion. A couple fundamental questions regarding the general scientific understanding of Earth's geophysical processes and you turn silent as a salt pillar.

A distinguished professor now willfully ignoring important evidence. Why?
From my perspective, your professional trajectory seems to have split off into that Crichtonesque paperback-writer's realm of political story-telling mode - that is, an "artiste" who feels free to pick and choose facts - as is convenient for his storyline. As opposed to the serious "learning" motived scientist.
What are your recent pronouncements all about? What inspired them?
What are you trying to accomplish?

OK, it is at the layperson's level - But, don't discount it!

CO2 – An Insignificant Trace Gas? The Science of Doom
Here are links to a series of videos with layperson friendly explanations of the various points regarding the Earth's radiation budget, information that in your attack on clear scientific understanding you feel the need to hide away from the public.
