Posted by: Andrew Jul 5 2010, 08:52 PM
Rebuttal to "http://agwobserver.wordpress.com/anti-agw-papers-debunked/"

The following is the rebuttal to a list of alleged "debunked" peer-reviewed papers supporting skeptic's arguments compiled at AGW Observer. His "debunking" sources include; unpublished, non-peer-reviewed sources such as comments in blogs and forums; published comments on the original paper that were rebutted by the author; or other independent papers which have also been rebutted. Comments in blogs and forums do not warrant a reply because any valid criticism would follow the established peer-review process of submitting a comment for publication in the same journal, which allows the author of the original paper a chance to publish a rebuttal in defense of their paper. Failure to attempt to publish their criticism(s) means they do not believe their arguments would stand up to peer-review.

Scafetta & Willson (2009) - Krivova et al. (2009), Rabett Run, Skeptical Science.

* Krivova et al. (2009) comment,
QUOTE
Their argument is foolish. First they calibrate their SATIRE model on PMOD, and then they claim to have disproven ACRIM. You need to read our paper, "ACRIM-gap and Total Solar Irradiance (TSI) trend issue resolved using a surface magnetic flux TSI proxy model", To understand that Krivova, S. K. Solanki, T. Wenzler were not able to disprove our original argument, so they changed their model of reference."

* Laken et al. (2009), Kulmala et al. (2009) comment,
QUOTE
"Well the first paper [Laken et al. (2009)] does not really contain any real statistical analysis of the situation, and some of their conclusions seems to be weak/unfounded.

We do mention some of the problems with a few of the papers that claim not to seen a signal, in the following discussion paper where we look at cloud microphysical parameters during Forbush decreases. 

http://www.atmos-chem-phys-discuss.net/12/3595/2012/acpd-12-3595-2012.html

The second paper [Kulmala et al. (2009)] is particle nucleation in a forest in Finland where the conditions are very local. Not really relevant for oceans for example …. I think that Yu has made some comment to their interpretations and claim that the actual fraction of ion-nucleated particles could be much larger. This is also consistent with our results from 2006 and recently were the ions are reused in forming H2SO4 leaving the products neutral. So one cannot subsequently see if an ion mechanism made the cluster, and if the cluster is charged when it is ~2 nm is independent of the origin of the aerosol.

So none of these papers, in my opinion, are raising any real problems – although they claim to do.

The signals we are looking for are small compared to the noise produced weather, and if one does not make optimal conditions to see the signal, it is easy to say the none exist."

* Calogovic et al. (2010) comment,
QUOTE
"I can report that Svensmark laughed when he read the paper from Arnold’s group. Where his own team studied three different satellite data sets and 26 Forbush decreases, Arnold’s took just one data set (ISCCP) and only six events – those ranking 4th, 10th to 13th, and 26th, in Svensmark, Bondo and Svensmark’s assessment of effects on cosmic rays reaching the lower atmosphere. In the Danes’ plot of all their ISCCP results (see above) all but one of the Swiss-German selection have “strengths” between 33 % and 69 %, where any reduction in clouds is similar to the uncertainty. “Of course they couldn’t see anything,” Svensmark said to me."
