The Guardian reports that modeling by 20 institutions for the sixth assessment by the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change due to be released next year suggests climate is considerably more sensitive to carbon emissions than had been originally thought. And that worst-case global warming scenarios may need to be revised upwards in light of a better understanding of the role of clouds.
The data suggests, compared with the last IPCC assessment in 2014, 25% of the models show a sharp upward shift in climate sensitivity from 3C to 5C that shocked many veteran observers, because assumptions about climate sensitivity have been relatively unchanged since the 1980s.
