AI Model Predicts Warming that Shatters Climate Targets

“We’re using this very powerful tool that is able to take information and integrate it in a way that no human mind is able to do, for better or for worse.”
– Stanford climate scientist Noah Diffenbaugh, on using machine learning to model anthropocentric warming. In Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, his team’s model predicts we’ll blast past agreed-upon climate thresholds. As Brown University researcher Kim Cobb put it: “This paper may be the beginning of the end of the 1.5C target.”
