In a suite of idealized experiments with the Community Atmospheric Model version 3 coupled to a slab ocean, we show that the atmospheric circulation response to CO increase is sensitive to extratropical cloud feedback that is potentially nonlinear. Doubling CO produces a poleward shift of the Southern Hemisphere (SH) midlatitude jet that ...More
