A few days ago Hockey Schtick brought up Feynman deriving the basic atmospheric gas and temperature profile without mentioning radiation and showing that classical physics fails, quantum mechanics is required.
From Fenyman lectures VOL 1, Chapter 40, showing the contradiction between classic physics and reality, annotated by author. This is one and the same as the ultra-violet catastrophe matter, both needing a quantum physics jump.
Two explanations for one thing might be the food of cats or thought experiments but is not valid in the real world, one planet, although sometimes looking at the state of people I wonder.

The Talkshop thanks Calctech et al
This blog has an enduring interest in atmospheric matters with many articles directly or by discussion deviation producing much hot air on what is really going on, including original work.
Any theories on why, perverseness aside, there is disagreement?
