Although this is a great model to show the basics of how the greenhouse effect works and how we contribute to the global warming process, it has many limitations. One is that much of the heat produced is stored in our oceans, the model does not show how the oceans contribute to the process. Another limitation is weather, clouds contribute to the insulation of heat as well as blocking the solar energy which would influence the results of our model as well.
