Chou and Lindzen (2005, hereafter CL) claim that the long-term Earth Radiation Budget Satellite (ERBS) nonscanner measurements reflect a strong negative feedback between top of the atmosphere (TOA) radiation and the surface temperature, and is consistent with the Iris hypothesis proposed by Lindzen et al. (2001, hereafter LCH). They disagree with the finding of Lin et al. (2004, hereafter LWWH) that no evidence exists for the Iris hypothesis effect in the long-term ERBS data. After examining the decadal ERBS data in
