Global Warming Not as Severe as Climate Models Project

New research shows that the IPCC’s predicted temperature increase is overblown.

A recent study conducted by Nicholas Lewis and Judith Curry and published in the Journal of Climate found that the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s (IPCC) climate change models overestimate global temperature increases by a whopping 30% to 45%. Lewis explains, “Our results imply that, for any future emissions scenario, future warming is likely to be substantially lower than the central computer model-simulated level projected by the IPCC, and highly unlikely to exceed that level.”

And Lewis and Curry’s study isn’t the only one to make this claim. Reason notes, “Lewis and Curry’s estimates are in line with the similarly low estimates reported by climatologists Thorsten Mauritsen of Max Planck Institute for Meteorology and Robert Pincus of the University of Colorado in the July 2017 issue of Nature Climate Change.”

Finally, about that global warming… This April has been one of the coldest on record, which has forced many U.S. farmers to delay planting their crops. Mike Tannura of T-Storm Weather notes, “Based on the data we’re looking at today, there’s a chance it could be the coldest [April] of the entire period going back to 1895.” We have have yet another example demonstrating the absurdity of the often repeated phrase “settled science.”
