Study: lack of cloud physics biased climate models high

November 29, 2013

Watts Up With That?

The Hockey Schtick brings this to our attention. It seems Dr. Roy Spencer was prescient with his observation:

“The most obvious way for warming to be caused naturally is for small, natural fluctuations in the circulation patterns of the atmosphere and ocean to result in a 1% or 2% decrease in global cloud cover. Clouds are the Earth’s sunshade, and if cloud cover changes for any reason, you have global warming — or global cooling.”

Readers might also recall that evidence has been found for Spencer’s 1-2% cloud fluctuation. Even the National Science Foundation recognizes the role of clouds is uncertain: NSF Releases Online, Multimedia Package Titled, “Clouds: The Wild Card of Climate Change”

WUWT readers may recall the recent paper by Suckling and Smith covered at WUWT: New paper: climate models short on ‘physics required for realistic simulation of the Earth system’

In the Suckling and Smith paper it…

    Some friendly, well-meaning & helpful advice:

    WUWT does not ‘reblog’, per Anthony’s instructions. But if you include some relevant comments along with re-blogging, the chances are good that your comment gets approved.
