Climate Change: Why is it so often “sooner than predicted”?

Short term sensitivity is 2-4.5 C, but long term is more like 10C. The crime of IPCC and other modelling outfits is that they are aware of this difference between short and long term, but still use the short term value even when they are doing hand-waving studies of what is going to happen over the next century or two.”

But when it comes to making accurate predictions, maybe it’s no longer important.Perhaps the lesson here is just that it’s worse than we think and worse than we want and—we must consider this possibility—worse than we can fix.

So then our challenge is to accept that and to take responsible action.
