High end of climate sensitivity in new climate models seen as less plausible

Source: Science Daily

Researchers found that the latest generation of high-sensitivity climate models do not provide a plausible scenario of Earth’s future climate. These models project that clouds moderate greenhouse gas-induced warming — particularly in the northern hemisphere — much more than climate records show actually happens. The results provide a cautionary tale on interpreting climate simulations, which can determine the aggressiveness of carbon-mitigation policies.
