Global warming irreversible for 1000 years
Climate change is "largely irreversible" for the next 1,000 years even if carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions could be abruptly halted, according to a new study led by the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).
The study's authors said there was "no going back" after the report showed that changes in surface temperature, rainfall and sea level are "largely irreversible for more than 1,000 years after CO2 emissions are completely stopped."
- Why does this come as a surprise to anyone? The science is "settled" right?
- Why are we wasting trillions of taxpayer dollars on "tackling climate change"?
