Abstract
Herein I respond to the criticism and to the complains by Benestad (Pattern Recogn. Phys. 1, 91-92, 2013, http://dx.doi.org/10.5194/prp-1-91-2013) of Scafetta (Pattern Recogn. Phys. 1, 37-57, 2013, http://dx.doi.org/10.5194/prp-1-37-2013) that I found misleading and not tenable. More significantly, Benestad did not find any physical nor mathematical error in Scafetta's work. Thus, Scafetta scientific results remain fully confirmed.
