New climate study has faulty math

If I’d done the math, you can be sure it would need a careful review. But this one? It was published in the journal Nature, and “asserted that ocean-warming calculations done by the United Nation’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change were too conservative. Alternatively, the researchers contend that sea warmth is 60% higher what the IPCC declares.

However, mathematician Nic Lewis discovered a discrepancy shortly after the study went public. Lewis wrote that “a quick review of the first page of the paper was sufficient to raise doubts as to the accuracy of its results.” He went on to reveal, “Just a few hours of analysis and calculations, based only on published information, was sufficient to uncover apparently serious (but surely inadvertent) errors in the underlying calculations.””
