Climate change inevitable says new study
According to new research being published in the current issue of Science, even if current levels of greenhouse emissions were to stabilize, Earth’s climate will still change. Even if no more greenhouse gases were added to the atmosphere, globally averaged surface air temperatures would rise about a half degree Celsius (one degree Fahrenheit) and global sea levels would rise another 11 centimeters (4 inches) from thermal expansion alone by 2100. […] “Many people donâ€™t realize we are committed right now to a significant amount of global warming and sea level rise because of the greenhouse gases we have already put into the atmosphere,” says lead author Gerald Meehl.
