Snyder and the global temperature graph - Gerg's Net
A paper in this week’s Nature by Caroline Snyder at Stanford provides a fresh attempt at estimating global average surface temperatures across the Pleistocene (her estimates cover the last 2 million years). Unfortunately there appear to be major issues with this work — the estimate of ‘earth system sensitivity’ to atmospheric carbon dioxide change appears based on an unsound premise, and consequently the ‘committed temperature change’ conclusion drawn from it is invalid (it’s way too pessimistic). But the global average . . . → Read More: Snyder and the global temperature graph
