The problems with the GHE as described most commonly are legion. I have written extensively about this topic which is warranted as this is the foundation of the global warming debate.
Unlike the endless discussion about reconstruction methods or problems with the station data vs. satellite data, the energy balance is the foundation of predicting what the Earth's climate will be like in the future.
I will have to see about getting some of my full articles posted here to simplify the process of discussion. For now here is a link to one of the relevant articles which discusses the GHE. It is unfortunate that the GHE is applied to the difference between the blackbody temperature of the Earth and the actual temperature.
