Equilibrium Climate Sensitivity is Over-estimated in a Key CMIP6 Model

Paper ReviewedZhu, J., Poulsen, C.J. and Otto-Bliesner, B.L. 2020. High climate sensitivity in CMIP6 model not supported by paleoclimate. Nature Climate Change 10: 378-379. The magnitude of long-term warming predicted in response to a given rise in atmospheric CO2 defines a model’s equilibrium climate sensitivity (ECS). Over the past four decades, the range of ECS predicted by various versions of
