    Clouds study finds that low climate sensitivity is ‘extremely unlikely’

    It is “very likely” that the way clouds change as the world warms will drive further temperature rise, a new study finds. The response of clou...Read More

    Guest post: How declining ice in clouds makes high ‘climate sensitivity’ plausible

    Simulations from the latest climate models have suggested that the Earth’s climate might be more sensitive to increasing atmospheric CO2 than previ...Read More
