One is justified to question why no meteorologist consults a table of current greenhouse gas (ghg) conditions in order to predict the day’s temperature in any region of the planet.  The answer is that the ghg effect is not needed to explain any observed temperature related condition across the Earth over any day or week.

Mainstream scientists continue to assert that an effect which cannot be identified from day to day, or even decade to decade, anywhere on our planet, is the pre-eminent climate forcing agent of our century.  I know as others who research the atmosphere, that in the mildly edited words of Sun et al. (2019):  “Surface air temperature is largely determined by surface net radiation and its partitioning into latent heat and sensible heat fluxes.”

Those wishing more corroboration are invited to scan the featured animation of full atmospheric global temperature semi-decadal patterns.  The fluctuations in global geostrophic temperature appear to be both mild and cyclic over the recent satellite – era decades.  The decadal scale appears to be repeatedly identified by works of many contemporary researchers and is experiencing a resurgence in solar cycle related investigations.

This post draws upon some related aspects from an earlier feature on Temperature, Moisture, and the Weight of the Atmosphere.
