Cloud feedback wrong in climate models, paper
8:09am 15th August 2012
A recent paper by Miller et al 2012 in the AMS Journal indicates that the climate models could be out by a factor of 19 with respect to actual cloud feedback.
For those of us who have been wanting to see more analysis done on the exact role clouds play in the climate and how they relate to the Co2 and feedback, this paper (abstract) and (pdf) will certainly be of interest you.
This is also covered in detail both on Jo Nova and The Hockey Schtick.
Given how much emphasis models place on positive feedback in relation to Co2, without any real solid analysis as to 'how' they proved the positive feedback is there to model - such papers that cast more light on the relationships between different elements of the climate should be encouraged.
