Submission + - Climate less sensitive to CO2 than previously thou (bbc.co.uk)

a_hanso writes: A study by Oregon State University suggests that the effects of rising levels of carbon dioxide on temperature may be less than previously thought.

The new models predict that given a doubling in CO2 levels from pre-industrial levels, the Earth's surface temperatures will rise by 1.7 to 2.6 degrees C. That is a much tighter range than suggested by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC)'s 2007 report, which suggested a rise of between 2 to 4.5 degrees C.
