Professor Mark Maslin, a climatologist from University College London, has written an article for The Conversation to mark the publication of the Synthesis Report of AR5. In it he makes some remarkable claims, for example:
We have tracked significant increase in global temperatures of 0.85°C and sea level rise of 20cm over the past century.
Changes in precipitation are also expected to vary from place to place. In the high-latitude regions (central and northern regions of Europe, Asia and North America) the year-round average precipitation is projected to increase, while in most sub-tropical land regions it is projected to decrease by as much as 20%, increasing the risk of drought.
I wonder if he is going to try to make a defence of his article. If you head over to the Conversation, do stay polite and on topic. Several BH regulars are already there.
