Climate ‘skeptics’ down-play the sensitivity of Earth’s climate to increased CO2 emissions and concentrations, and so might some policy makers. In the end, it’s the emissions and concentrations that most matter rather than uncertainties about climate sensitivity.
‘Multiple independent lines of evidence.’ Get used to hearing that term in reference to the past year’s record warmth across the contiguous United States and the near-record global temperatures too. The long-range forecast: a hotter planet by the end of [...]

‘BEST’ researchers release not-yet-peer-reviewed findings supporting validity of temperature station records and rejecting urban heat island arguments. Climate ‘skeptics,’ having anticipated good news, cry foul … and climatologists long supportive of the evidence wonder, ‘So? What’s New?’
