Warming Fact And Fiction
Data indicate China's carbon emissions could be 20% higher, prompting fears Earth is warming at a much faster rate.
"The sad fact is that Chinese energy and emission data as primary input to the models will add extra uncertainty in modelling simulations of predicting future climatic change," say the authors of a study in the journal Nature Climate Change.
Scientists say the world is already racing towards a warming of 2 degrees Celsius or more in coming decades because of the rapid growth in emissions from burning fossil fuels and deforestation. Adding another billion tonnes into computer models would accelerate the pace of expected warming.
Someone seems to have lost touch with reality. Temperature is measured with thermometers, not by the predicted output of computer models. They are just guesses, very clever guesses some of them, but they aren't reality.
