EAC Carbon Budget Enquiries - were the models valid?

  1. Environmental Audit Committee (EAC) 'Carbon Budget Enquiries' (2009 - 2013)
  2. GCI presented CBAT as a cognitive framework within which to address this issue of feedbacks
  3. On its website UKMO admitted the omission of major feedbacks from its climate modelling
  4. Under Oath UKMO then denied these omissions in evidence to the EAC Enquiry in 2013

    After the enquiry, UKMO removed their web-page admitting the omission of major feedback effects from their website & also
    from the archive of their website. Fortunately, in GCI's evidence to EAC, the words on their website were recorded here.
    UKMO was unhappy with this proof being supplied as to their misleading the EAC on the matter of ommited feedbacks.

    Coincidentally, (March 2019 - i.e. six year after the event) this second memo to EAC from GCI may have been removed
    from the Parliamentary record where it has been (with all the rest of GCI's evidence to EAC's Carbon Budget Enquiry).
    In case the Parliamentary link isn't working, here it is at an independent link, as originally supplied to the EAC by GCI.

  5. The 'RCP' scenarios; sink failure rates modelled in RCP 8.5 (the path we're on)
  6. Emissions-Creep since UKCA (2008)
  7. Widely varying estimates of Emissions from Land Use Changes
