Observational constraints on mixed-phase clouds imply higher climate sensitivity
Description: "Global climate model (GCM) estimates of the equilibrium global mean surface temperature response to a doubling of atmospheric CO2, measured by the equilibrium climate sensitivity (ECS), range from 2.0 degrees to 4.6 degrees C. Clouds are among the leadin

Contributions of Stratospheric Water Vapor to Decadal Changes in the Rate of Global Warming
Description: "Stratospheric water vapor concentrations decreased by about 10% after the year 2000. Here, we show that this acted to slow the rate of increase in global surface temperature over 2000 to 2009 by about 25% compared to that which would have occurred due on
