Climate contrarian uncovers scientific error, upends major ocean warming study
An independent climate scientist has found a big
mistake in a major ocean warming study.
Nicholas Lewis posted an online critique of the
paper that was published in the journal Nature.
The study claimed the world’s oceans are
warming 60% more than the United Nations had
estimated in its IPCC report in 2014.
Lewis found the researchers made miscalculations,
which made the results no longer unique.
A co-author has accepted responsibility
for the mistake and thanked Lewis for his work.
The authors said they have since made corrections
and resubmitted the study for publication.
