Forecasts for global warming ‘too high’
THE effects of climate change may be less severe than had been feared, a dramatic study has revealed.
Australian scientists say predictions for global warming have been too high.
A university team, using ground-breaking research, said an estimate that the planet would warm up by more than 11F (6C) by the year 2100 unless there were huge cuts in carbon emissions was “unlikely”.
However, in a research paper published in the journal Nature Climate Change, the team claimed that a 4F (2C) increase was “very likely” at current emission rates.
Dr Roger Bodman, from Victoria University, along with Professors David Karoly and Peter Rayner, from the University of Melbourne, have generated what they say are more reliable projections of global warming.
