A steady-state energy-balance climate model based on
a global constraint of maximum entropy production is used
to examine cloud feedback and the response of surface
temperature T to doubled atmospheric CO2. The constraint
ensures that change in zonal cloud amount q necessarily
involves change in the convergence KX of meridional
energy flow.
