Speaker: Zeyuan Hu

 Title: "Polar amplification dominated by local forcing and feedbacks"

During the discussion, Zeyuan will be discussing the following points:

1. Using a climate model with regional CO2 forcing, the authors show that the temperature response to a global CO2 forcing can be roughly linearly decomposed into contributions from polar regions, midlatitudes, and Tropics.

2. Polar amplification is dominated by CO2 forcing in the polar regions.

3. Extra-polar forcing induces a largely uniform warming pattern between polar and extra-polar regions.
