Scientists: World’s Climate Warming Faster Than Feared

7

globe-global-warming-worldAs the planet marked its fourth hottest year on record, a study published in the journal Nature found increasing levels of carbon dioxide will lead to thinner ocean clouds and reduce their cooling impact, causing temperature rises of at least 5.6F (3C) over the course of the century.

The team of scientists said the findings show some climate models have been too “optimistic” and previous estimates of a minimum temperature rise of only 2.7F (1.5C) could now be discounted. The optimistic models did not properly assess the impact of water evaporation, which sometimes rises only a short distance into the atmosphere and causes updraughts that reduce cloud cover, the study found.

“These models have been predicting a lower climate sensitivity but we believe they’re incorrect,” Professor Steven Sherwood, from the University of New South Wales, told The Sydney Morning Herald.

“The net effect of [climate change] is you have less cloud cover.”

The study comes amid a controversy in Australia over claims by Maurice Newman, Prime Minister Tony Abbott’s top business adviser, who said the world had been taken “hostage to climate change madness.”

  1. “Global warming” is a giant hoax perpetrated and promulgated by the “green” lobbyists on K Street in Washington, D.C. and their cronies around the (warming) globe.

    They have successfully amassed boatloads of cash to beam across their message and to help fund studies such as the one above to build their castles in the air about this hoax.

    Lobbyists, pend the scientists down to Antarctica where it is incredibly cold right now. There is a tourist ship stuck in the ice.

    BTW, who elected these scientists to run the world?

    Enjoy the weather.

  3. Someone must have forgotten to tell them that there is a G-D who really runs the world. Nature belongs to Him. Guess 13 degrees for winter must be summer.
