Alarm on Global Warming is New?

New Report Sounds the Alarm on Global Warming

ChattahBox)—A new study on global warming is predicting an alarming rise in temperatures over the next five-years that should put an end to global warming deniers who point to periods of cooler weather, as evidence that human influences play no role in climate change

The study was conducted by Judith Lean, of the US Naval Research Laboratory, and David Rind, of Nasa’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies. Their research analyzed several combined factors to assess global warming, human influences such as CO2, heating from the sun; volcanic activity and the El Niño southern oscillation.

The study shows that the relatively stable temperatures experienced around the globe for the past seven years are the results of the downward phase of the 11-year solar cycle combined with weak El Niño events. But that is all about to change, setting off a period of accelerated global warming at a more rapid pace.

With the advent of a new El Niño warm spell ahead and an expected increase in solar activity, temperatures could reach a new high of 150 percent of the rate predicted by the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.

The study will be published in Geophysical Research Letters.
