Rather than the increase in Global-Mean Surface Temperature (GMST) simulated by climate models, recent observations suggest a warming hiatus.
In a paper just published in Geophysical Research LettersIAGP researchers perform a novel simulation where we see if it is possible to restore Arctic sea-ice using stratospheric aerosol injected by planes flying out of Svalbard. We treat a single model run as the real world and examine practical decision making under imperfect observations and incomplete understanding of climate response. We found quantifying climate side effects problematic.
