is real and occurring as we speak a few pieces of the puzzle have proved difficult to fit into place Critics of the warming theory have clung to these last bits of evidence But new research at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory is hammering another big nail in the naysayers1 coffin Most climate models predict that loading the atmosphere with carbon dioxide and other green house gases as humans have done for more than 150 years should warm the troposphere the lowest layer of atmosphere faster than the planets sur face But temperature measure ments from weather balloons and satellites show that while the surface has warmed the tropo sphere has warmed more slowly and actually cooled slightly in some places since 1979 The skeptics have always used this as one of the argu ments that climate scientists dont know what theyre talking about and global warming isnt said climatologist John Chiang of the University of Cali fornia Berkeley Now two groups of scien tists have corrected errors in the temperature data revealing that the troposphere has indeed warmed faster than the surface To follow up atmospheric sci entist Ben Santer of Lawrence Livermore led a team of 25 sci entists who found the corrected temperature data agrees with 19 different computer climate models from around the world The three studies appeared Fri day in the journal Science Please see WARMING
