The Australian team of researchers says they have a new key for predicting cloud behavior and, according to their predictions, carbon dioxide levels will double. They’re describing it as “climate change madness.” The team says the problem with climate change forecasting has been the inability to predict cloud behavior, but thanks to their new method, they can now account for clouds in their models. They say they are “hoping for the best and preparing for the worst.”
