Earth’s climate system is a complex beast. In order to discuss it, we often rely on simple measures like climate sensitivity—an estimate of how much warming we can expect to get from a given increase in greenhouse gas concentrations. Unfortunately, measuring the climate sensitivity isn’t that simple. Among other complications, you have to pick the …read more
