Estimates for future global warming narrowed down

Nov 15, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: New Scientist

HOW much will Earth warm this century? The best answer to this killer question remains broad, but a study has narrowed the range of likely temperatures - and comes down on the warmer side.

No worries, if it's clouds they are concerned about well reduced solar activity will reduce the size of the solar system's heliosphere. A smaller heliosphere will allow more cosmic rays which will produce more clouds.

More clouds, lower temperatures.

As ususal, you don't read the reference and then spin your own bafflegab and BS.

The report reduces the uncertainly of cloud formation and concludes that clouds will NOT moderate the response as much as prior estimates allowed.

I sometimes wonder why you haven't been institutionalized. Tight budget?

I read the article. It doesn't say anything about the heliosphere. If you are trying to predict what clouds will do, you need more than just what is going on today.

Nobody said anything about the heliosphere. If this is your evidence that you read the article, it just proves that you didn't read the article.

Again, you prove that you didn't read the article. Enough irrelevant non-sequiturs. Read the thing and THEN commnent.

Someone ought to tell them that the true metric of any model is how accurately it can predict the future. I wonder if I was to place that model a century in the past. How accurate it would predict todays climate.

From the article:

"Much of the uncertainty stems from clouds, whose effects climate models struggle to simulate. Fasullo and Trenberth bypassed this problem by using satellite records of relative humidity, which influences cloud formation, instead. "

My post:

"No worries, if it's clouds they are concerned about well reduced solar activity will reduce the size of the solar system's heliosphere. A smaller heliosphere will allow more cosmic rays which will produce more clouds.

More clouds, lower temperatures. "

Professional astronomers have few agreements with toxic topix AGW deniers...... specially when toxic topix AGW deniers try to put words in professional astronomers conclusions.

Professional astronomers have few agreements with themselves. Each put words into their own professional conclusions depending on the flavor of the day.

That's why 'flat-earthers' think they can get away with their 'flat-earth' concept.

They may fall off the edge. They may have a flat earth concept on the top of their heads. Have you removed their hats to see otherwise?
