New research show a complex and revealing picture of climate sensitivity

Video: New Research on Climate Sensitivity

Climate sensitivity is the degree to which global climate responds to a change in the amount of energy in the climate system. More specifically it is defined as the “equilibrium change in response to changes of the radiative forcing.” In terms of anthropogenic climate change, it indicates how much the climate will change in response to human factors affecting climate, such as…
