Dot Earth Blog: Study Finds Limited Sensitivity of Climate to CO2

Recalling the perils of single-study syndrome , it’s still important to note a new study that appears to go a long way toward narrowing the extent of possible warming projected well into this century from the buildup of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. Eric Berger of the Houston Chronicle describes the research , published today in Science. The work, led by researchers at Oregon State University , had surfaced earlier but has now survived peer review. Berger provides useful context from Andrew Dessler , a climate scientist at Texas A&M University, who noted that most people publishing on this question have long seen very low odds of runaway or extreme warming: My sense is that most scientists consider the very high end of the sensitivity range… to be pretty unlikely (although it cannot be ruled out)…. In other words, I was not terribly worried about runaway climate change...
