CO2 sensitivity possibly less than most extreme projections
Description: A new study suggests that the global climate may be less sensitive to CO2 fluctuations than predicted by the most extreme projections, and maybe slightly less than the best estimates of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. The study's lead author notes that, while man-made global warming is happening and tiny changes in global average temperatures can have huge and deleterious effects, the atmosphere may not be as sensitive to CO2 change as has been reported.
