SkS Highlights

Before he left for a much deserved, two-week vacation in Australia, Dana posted two articles,Why trust climate models?

The comment threads of these two articles were the most active of the articles posted this past week.

Quote of the Week

"The key piece here is just how unprecedented the warming of Arctic Canada is," Gifford Miller, a researcher at the University of Colorado, Boulder, said in a joint statement from the school and the publisher of the journal Geophysical Researcher Letters, in which the study by Miller and his colleagues was published online this week. "This study really says the warming we are seeing is outside any kind of known natural variability, and it has to be due to increased greenhouse gases in the atmosphere."
