Short summary
In the article Clim Past 10, 1779 (2014), the HITRAN2012 database was employed to evaluate the radiative forcing of 28 Archean gases. The authors claimed that for NO2, H2O2, C2H4, CH3OH, and CH3Br there are severe disagreements between cross sections generated from the HITRAN line-by-line data and those of the PNNL experimental database. In this work we show that the differences are not nearly at the scale suggested by the authors, and their conclusions about these gases and HO2 are not correct.
