“Getting an idea of natural climate change through the 11.65 thousand years since the end of the last period of extensive glaciation depends on a variety of indirect measurements or proxies for temperature. “
The Earth’s ability to absorb nearly a third of human-caused carbon emissions through plants could be halved within the next two decades at the current rate of warming.
” Cooling to near-glacial climates was astonishingly rapid, on the order of a few decades at most. “
The findings could lead us to better understand how changes in our climate affects the planet.
As humans change the ocean state by adding more heat and carbon, the ability of the ocean to take up both heat and carbon will be altered.
New research suggests that global warming could have a huge impact on the life expectancy among cold-blooded species – that is, reptiles and amphibians.
More than 1,330 square miles of the Amazon rainforest have been lost since January this year.
Climate change is already having an impact on fish and fisheries globally
