Global warming has reached a “tipping point,” and blame humans for this. It is alarming that this warming would continue even if greenhouse gas emissions halted immediately, according to a new survey of scientific research.
“It would keep on warming even though we have stopped the cause, which is greenhouse gases from the combustion of fossil fuels… The rate of warming would be slower, but a kind of thermal inertia would ensure that global temperatures continue their upward trend,’ David Jhirad of the Washington-based World Resources Institute said Wednesday.
The report is based on research published in journals including Science and Nature. It also found that the effects of climate change were very severe. And to prevent more damage and to combat damage that has already occurred, they should spur urgent action.
