Will clouds save us from global warming?

The climate sensitivity is generally thought to be between 2 and 4°C.
But could it be significantly lower?  This would mean that something
in our understanding of climate is very wrong.  One possible place
where large errors might be is in the treatment of clouds.  In this
talk, I'll discuss the evidence we have about the cloud feedback and
why I think clouds are unlikely to save us from significant warming
over the upcoming century.
