Video - Climate More Sensitive to Atmospheric Warming than Previously Thought

There have been many studies published in 2014 that indicate the climate crisis is worse than previously thought. A study published on January 1, 2014 titled, "Spread in model climate sensitivity traced to atmospheric convective mixing," found that the climate is much more sensitive to atmospheric carbon than previously thought. The paper was written by Steven Sherwood from the University of New South Wales’ Centre of Excellence for Climate System Science. His research revealed that if we continue to pump CO2 into the atmosphere at current rates we will see warming of roughly 5°C [9°F] above modern temperatures or 6°C [11°F] above preindustrial temperatures this century.
