Not So Sensitive It Seems

There's a growing body of research that strongly suggests that the impact of CO2 on earth's temperature (known as climate sensitivity) is nowhere near the levels assumed by the climate models the UN rely on when issuing its regular proclamations of doom due to human emissions.  In other words, we've got nothing to worry about.  From an article at Cato-@-Liberty:
The publication of the Lewis and Curry paper, along with another by Ragnhild Skeie and colleagues, brings the number of recent low-sensitivity climate publications to 14, by 42 authors from around the world (this doesn’t count our 2002 paper on the topic, “Revised 21st Century Temperature Projections”).  Most of these sensitivities are a good 40% below the average climate sensitivity of the models used by the U.N.’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).
