    The IPCC's WG1 Scientific Report is due out soon and it is real bad news for the green radicals >>>>>


    In short: We can now estimate, based on observations, how sensitive the temperature is to carbon dioxide. We do not need to rely heavily on unproven models. Comparing the trend in global temperature over the past 100-150 years with the change in "radiative forcing" (heating or cooling power) from carbon dioxide, aerosols and other sources, minus ocean heat uptake, can now give a good estimate of climate sensitivity.

    The conclusion—taking the best observational estimates of the change in decadal-average global temperature between 1871-80 and 2002-11, and of the corresponding changes in forcing and ocean heat uptake—is this: A doubling of CO2 will lead to a warming of 1.6°-1.7°C (2.9°-3.1°F).

    This is much lower than the IPCC's current best estimate, 3°C (5.4°F).

    thats still a decent amount of temperature dude, thats the difference from 0 degrees Celsius (freezing) and 1 degrees Celsius(now everything's melted), where i live in the summer its aroud 110-115 degrees f, if it increases it would be 115-120 which is pretty bad

    That takes us to the hottest in 115,000 years. Remember the period between 1880-2012? Well, that warmed .8c.

    87 years at a rate of warming of 1c would be quite the charge.
