Contribution Of Anthropogenic CO2 Emissions To Changes In Atmospheric Concentrations

There is no question that anthropogenic CO2 is being absorbed in the atmosphere. However, there is no obvious evidence to support the claim that it is totally responsible for the…

Projecting manmade climate change: scenarios to 2050

Climate impact assessments are being biased in an alarming direction by continued inclusion, and especially sole reliance, on RCP8.5. For climate change to 2050, RCP4.5 and RCP6.0 are the most…
