Uh, I hate to point this out, but it's not HIS data.  See:

And how about the bit (I think) you clipped out here:

4.5 what?  Fast food outlets per km2?  Without some context, I have no idea
what the issue is.

I notice the 'theoretically speaking' bit here - it's all 'theoretically
speaking' until you build one...

I don't get it.  I looked and looked - what's your point?

Agreed, altho there are more precise theories.

Water boils at 212...

Perhaps the NRCC has remeasured long-term Edmonton weather averages.
What numbers do you have for the average temp and horizontal and
south insolation in January, and where did you find them?

Average daily for Dec.= -11.3 deg c
Average daily for Jan.= -13.5 deg c
Average yearly = 2.4 deg c

Hours of bright sunshine for Dec. = 83.3
Hours of bright sunshine for Jan. = 97.1
Percent of possible daylight hours ( of bright sunshine )
Dec. = 35.3 %; Jan. = 38.5 %

Frost depth to 6 feet

Days of windchill   < -20 deg. c;  Dec. = 16.5  Jan. = 19.8
                     < -30 deg. c;  Dec. =  7.8  Jan. = 10.6
                     < -40 deg. c;  Dec. =  2.1  Jan. =  4

Systems have to be funtional in the real local environment.

Numbers are for Edmonton International Airport .
I live nearby.

I was out that way a few weeks ago, during that warm spell. Interesting
that Edmonton International Airport is nowhere near Edmonton ;-).
