A group of prominent climate scientists have published research claiming that the so-called line of no return for global warming may be a few more decades down the road than what the U.N. has previously reported, says The Daily Caller.
The study that was published in the Journal Nature Geoscience actually shows the new “consensus” on global warming, rather than future projections that have always had high amounts of uncertainty.
The study shows that climate models are running too hot and could not predict the 15-year “hiatus” in global warming.
“’We haven’t seen that rapid acceleration in warming after 2000 that we see in the models. We haven’t seen that in the observations,’ Myles Allen, a geosystem scientist at the University of Oxford, told The Times on Monday.
‘The models end up with a warming which is larger than the observed warming for the current emissions. … So, therefore, they derive a budget which is much lower,’ study co-author Pierre Friedlingstein of the University of Exeter said, according to The Washington Post.”
Most climate models have over-predicted the amount of warming during the early 21st Century. satellite data has shown a more than 20-year “hiatus” in warming.
Scientists have debated whether this “hiatus” was just an instrumental error or natural climate variations the model didn’t take into account.
The climate models used by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) “tend to slightly overestimate historical warming, and at the same time underestimate compatible historical CO2 emissions,” said co-author Joeri Rogelj of the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis.
“These two small discrepancies accumulate over time and lead to a slight underestimation of the remaining carbon budget,” Rogelj told WaPo. “What we did in this study is to reset the uncertainties, starting from where we are today.”
It had to be till 2016 until a prominent scientists admitted that the study that Rogeli co-wrote was telling the truth about climate change.
Scientists have been continuing to smash the liberal falsehood of climate change for years, like Scientist John Christy of University of Alabama-Huntsville testified before congress on the matter.
Another new study came out from scientist Ryan Maue who wrote about the new “consensus” on global warming in the wake of a June study by prominent scientists.
But as always there will be scientists out there trying to disprove this new information.
Potsdam Institute scientist Stefan Rahmstorf told the Washington Post the new study “adjusted the budget upward based on the idea that there has been less observed warming than suggested by the climate models, but that is not actually true if you do the comparison properly.”
