#climatechange – recent academic analysis

I had a look at the recent article by Millar et al. that has elicited comment in the press.

As far as I can tell, it looks at existing modelling and concludes that we have not yet passed the point of no return for limiting global warming to 1.5°. This is good news. If my reading of the article is correct, it is hard to reconcile with Rod Liddle’s article in today’s Sunday Times:

Last week we learnt from a study… in the impeccable and neutral source Nature Geoscience that we have all been taken for a ride by the climate change people… Billions were spent in this country alone, subsidising useless wind farms and taxing ordinary people on their energy bills.
