For The Real News Network, I spoke this week with Dr. Neil Swart of the Canadian Centre for Climate Modelling & Analysis (CCCMA). The CCCMA has developed a more sophisticated climate model which predicts that, under a high emissions scenario, we will see 7-8C of warming by 2100. The model also predicts that, even in a strong emissions mitigation scenario, the world will experience 2.4C of global heating over pre-industrial levels by 2100.
