Climate change has slowed over the course of the last 15-20 years, but that is only due to the fact that it’s getting ready to rapidly speed up – peaking around 2040.
Climate change is coming fast, and despite what many have called a slowdown over the course of the last decade, or so, it will make no difference by the time humanity reaches the year 2100. In fact, by the time 2040 comes around, new research has many scientists believing that we will have seen such massive shifts in climate change – that it won’t make a difference what happened in the very early parts of this century.
UNSW Scientia Professor Matthew England, who was the lead author on this study pointed out that, “This shows that the slowdown in global warming has no bearing on long-term projections – it is simply due to decadal variability. Greenhouse gases will eventually overwhelm this natural fluctuation.” He went on to point out that, “Our research shows that while there may be short-term fluctuations in global average temperatures, long-term warming of the planet is an inevitable consequence of increasing greenhouse gas concentrations.”
That’s why researchers like England are pushing so hard to see reform on a global scale when it comes to greenhouse gases and the carbon footprint of human life. Over the course of the next 50-100 years a change on a massive scale is going to be taking place, and at this point, it’s time to buckle down and really begin making changes to prevent what damage could be done.
This is also why the Global Warming Policy Foundation is working to change the way people perceive the official climate data that exists in the world. They’re enlisting a number of scientists who will work from all of the data that exists in the world to come up with a justifiable answer that can be held against criticism over time.
Right now there are plenty of official, and government agencies that have done work in the field of global warming, so it’s important to collect a vast amount of data that can weed through all of the different layers of official data. That’s the goal of this particular project put together by the Global Warming Policy Foundation. At the end of the day, creating a better tomorrow is the goal here, as global warming continues to have a significant impact on the world around us.
