Why is the Earth the temperature it is?

The 'anomaly' of the air temperature above the land surfaces of the Earth. The area highlighted at the top right shows temperature estimates in recent years. The 'zero' corresponds to the average value between 1961 and 1990.

In all the argumentation about whether the Earth is warming or is undergoing a temperature ‘hiatus’, people often fail to address themselves to some basic questions. And the most basic of these questions is ‘Why is the Earth the temperature it is?’

Recently I addressed this question in a webinar recorded for Chemistry and Industry magazine and this will be broadcast later today (Tuesday December 10th 2013) at 4:00 p.m. UK time.
