Description: 

According to a recent study published by Yale University, computer simulations have been underestimating how much the global temperature is predicted to change. The study places the expected temperature increase close to one degree higher compared to previous estimates. The cause for the unexpected increase in temperature is believed to the result of clouds containing more ice than water. When clouds are comprised primarily of water they are able retain more heat than ice. The study reports that scientists have underestimated the effect clouds can have on the overall temperature, therefore resulting in the one degree difference.
