Scientists have been making projections of future global warming using climate models of increasing complexity for the past four decades

October 5, 2017 — These models, driven by atmospheric physics and biogeochemistry, play an important role in our understanding of the Earth’s climate and how it will likely change in the future. Continue reading Analysis: How well have climate models projected global warming

A new study from my colleagues and I vindicates climate models, which are accurately predicting the rate of ocean heat accumulation

July 31, 2016 — For those of us who are concerned about global warming, two of the most critical questions we ask are, “how fast is the Earth warming?” and “how much will it warm in the future?”.  Continue reading Climate models are accurately predicting ocean and global warming
