    • Climate Scepticism

    “All our expert witnesses say treating the most severe trajectory, RCP 8.5, as the “business as usual” baseline scenario was wrong.  That placed us in the spotlight and as a result, our climate modelling has put too much emphasis on an unlikely scenario. ”  Have our climate models been wrong? This is the title of a new […]
