I'm waiting for someone like RealClimate to analyze Lindzen's paper, which I suspect will happen once it's been published. My suspicion is that he's using some uncorrected version of the ERBE data as he did previously with the ERBS data. His conclusions just don't make any sense considering the nearly 1°C warming so far. Either there's something wrong with the physics or Lindzen did something wrong, and the latter is the simpler and far more likely explanation. Since his data comes from a NASA instrument, it shouldn't be difficult for someone at RealClimate to spot such an error.
I'm surprised Watts blogged on the Tanaka paper, although all he took from it was:
science does not yet know for certain what the true climate sensitivity to CO2 forcings is.
even though he quoted the abstract which stated that a low sensitivity remains unlikely. Denial-colored glasses.
