Climate change could be far more serious than thought

Our climate scientists at University of New South Wales found an important factor in the climate model which did not reflect reality. The water vapour coming out from ocean and ground are not all going up to 15 km to form clouds which reflect sunlight. In fact, if this factor is adjust to reflect the tendency of water vapour going up to 5 km before they get condensed and fall back down as rain, there will be less cloud cover and hence less sunlight being reflected back to space. The over all conclusion is that a doubling of CO2 concentration in the atmosphere will increase the global temperature by 3oC instead of the previous number of 1.8oC.

If our scientists are correct, which is very likely, we are creating a future unthinkable for our children and grandchildren.
