Reply to Roe and Baker's comment on "Another look at climate sensitivity" by Zaliapin and Ghil (2010)

I. Zaliapin and M. Ghil

Abstract. G. H. Roe and M. B. Baker (hereafter R&B) claim that analysis of a global linear approximation to the climate system allows one to conclude that the quest for reliable climate predictions is futile. We insist that this quest is important and requires a proper understanding of the roles of both linear and nonlinear methods in climate dynamics.
