2. Climate Models: How We Know What the Future Holds
Led by Katharine Hayhoe, PhD
Carbon Brief: Q&A: How do climate models work?
Carbon Brief has spoken to a range of climate scientists in order to answer climate modeling questions and more. This article is an in-depth Q&A on climate models and how scientists use them.
Global Weirding with Katharine Hayhoe: We can't trust those Climate models....right?
This short video is part of the Global Weirding Youtube Series starring Katharine Hayhoe. In this video, Katharine explains how climate models are based on physics and are extremely complex. Climate models are the best tool scientists have to understand how climate is changing.
Carbon Brief: Analysis: How well have climate models projected global warming?
This Carbon Brief article compares “climate model projections published between 1973 and 2013 with observed temperatures. It reveals that climate models published since 1973 have generally been quite skillful in projecting future warming.”
Carbon Brief: CMIP6: the next generation of climate models explained
“In this explainer, Carbon Brief provides an overview of the future emissions scenarios that are being used in CMIP6. This includes an examination of the climate sensitivity, past and future warming in CMIP6 models released so far, and a look at how they compare with the prior generation of models in CMIP5. Finally, this article will summarize the different experiments that climate models are undertaking in CMIP6.”
