  abstract = {{Understanding the cause of differences among general circulation model
projections of carbon dioxide-induced climatic change is a necessary
step toward improving the models. An intercomparison of 14 atmospheric
general circulation models, for which sea surface temperature
perturbations were used as a surrogate climate change, showed that there
was a roughly threefold variation in global climate sensitivity. Most of
this variation is attributable to differences in the models' depictions
of cloud-climate feedback, a result that emphasizes the need for
improvements in the treatment of clouds in these models if they are
ultimately to be used as climatic predictors.
