Global warming likely to be in the higher side

Climate model projections that show a greater rise in global temperature are likely to prove more accurate than those showing a lesser rise.

temperature change from increased CO2The study was published in the journal - Science.

National Center for Atmospheric Research scientists John Fasullo and Kevin Trenberth analyzed how well 16 leading sophisticated climate models reproduce observed relative humidity in Earth's tropics and subtropics.
They used observations from two NASA satellite instruments - the Atmospheric Infrared Sounder (AIRS) instrument on NASA's Aqua spacecraft and the Clouds and Earth's Radiant Energy System (CERES) .

Climate model projections showing a greater rise in global temperature are likely to prove more accurate than those showing a lesser rise, according to them.
