On the other hand, large numbers of irreproducible studies in the scientific literature indicate that something's wrong, reported Retraction Watch.

And the results of the study showed that temperatures would increase between 0.9 and 2.0 degree Celsius, which are below the estimates made by the U.N. panel of climate scientists in 2007.
