Earlier this week, President-elect Barack Obama told a crowd of globe trotting jet setters in Beverly Hills, “The science is beyond dispute, and the facts are clear.” Obama was referring to all the doom and gloom scenarios the enviro/left spews about the dangers of global warming. Obama is a busy man these days, so he probably missed a new study in Nature Geoscience. The Australian Broadcasting Corporation reports:
Climate change may not be as severe as predicted, suggests an international study that shows current modelling of carbon dioxide emissions from soils are overestimated by as much as 20%.
The view, reported in the latest Nature Geoscience journal, is based on a study of Australian soils that finds the amount of carbon dioxide (CO2) released by Australian soils is much lower than previously believed.
The team found by including realistic estimates of charcoal in their climate prediction models, the amount of CO2 predicted to be released from two Australian savannah regions under a 3ºC warming scenario was 18.3% and 24.4% lower than previously calculated.
