James said during today’s BBC interview:
Our understanding of how sensitive the climate system is based on the Earth’s history, not on climate models. We have good data on how the Earth responded in the past when carbon dioxide changed and other forcing factors changed. So there’s no reason to change any forecasts for the long term.
Hansen notes that solar brightness has decreased and the effects are “not negligible.”
[You can’t expect global temperature to increase at a constant rate because] there’s too much natural variability. There are otehr forcing factors. It’s not only CO2 that’s changed. The sun’s brightness changed, ah decreased slightly over the last 10 years, about 0.1 watt/m2. That’s not as large as the climate forcing that you get from CO2, but it’s not negligible.
