Equilibrium Climate Sensitivity Updated

Top Scientists Just Ruled Out Best-Case Global Warming Scenarios (Bloomberg)
Eric Roston (July 22): A group of 25 leading scientists now conclude that catastrophic warming is almost inevitable if emissions continue at their current rate, even if there’s less reason to anticipate a totally uninhabitable Earth in coming centuries. The research, published Wed. (July 22) in the journal Reviews of Geophysics, narrows the answer to a key question: How much would the planet warm if humanity doubled the amount of CO₂ in the atmosphere? That number, “equilibrium climate sensitivity,” is typically expressed as a range. The scientists behind this new study have narrowed the climate-sensitivity window to between 2.6° Celsius and 3.9°C.
