We previously discussed Lindzen and Choi 2009 (LC09) which used Earth Radiation Budget Experiment (ERBE) instrumental measurements of shortwave and longwave radiation fluxes and observed sea surface temperature (SST) variations in the tropics to evaluate the overall radiative feedback of the climate to SST changes. The study essentially looked at how much energy escapes into space as the tropics warm, and concluded that climate sensitivity to increasing CO2 is very low (in the ballpark of 0.5°C for a doubling of atmospheric CO2).


You can see why Scepticalscience (the AGW Doom monger) does not like the paper.

I can't speak for skeptiscience, a site that has done a first class job of kicking denigelicals where it hurts most for years, but based on what I read in the article in question; this paper by Lidzen had some notable boo-boos.
So I can certainly say I didn't like the paper....and with good reason.
