This research had the objective to create a simple model of global temperature to demystify the scientific consensus and give non-climate science experts some level of intuition for how earth temperature calculations are made. This research poster gives some key pieces of the model I created as my research, and hopefully provides some understanding of how the equations used in the thermal budget portion, and the carbon cycle portion were devised.
