I appreciate that Smith et al. support the primary conclusion of my paper that accounting for the geographic distribution of radiative forcing is important in determining the climate response. They describe how the reduced-form model MAGICC represents the response to spatially inhomogeneous forcing via four boxes, one for land and one for ocean in each hemisphere, and I appreciate that clarification. My statement that there will be biases in simple models that do not account for the forcing distribution should have said that there will be biases in simple models that do not adequately account for the forcing distribution.
