Hotter summers in the pipelineJune 7th, 2011 - 9:38 pm ICT by Aishwarya Bhatt
New York, June 7 (THAINDIAN NEWS) If the current trend continues, the next 20 to 60 years the planet will be irreversibly changed, summer temperature wise, a new scientific study reveals. The report says the summer temperatures will go up significantly if the current greenhouse gas emissions are not reduced.
The research will be published in the Climate Change Journal later in June.
The research was conducted by researchers from the Stanford University. According to the findings of the scientists, the next two years will bring in its wake increased summer heat in the tropical regions of Asia, South America and Africa. The report says the heat will be unprecedented.
The next six decades will bring the record summer heat to North America, China and Europe, the report says.
The leader of the research team, Noah Diffenbaugh explained that, “According to our projections, large areas of the globe are likely to warm up so quickly that, by the middle of this century, even the coolest summers will be hotter than the hottest summers of the past 50 years.”
The scientists warn that they have found evidence that the planet is warming up at an unprecedented rate. The full effect of global warming has been discussed for years and it is one of the major issues confronting world leaders.
