Climate Change Is Forcing Earth Toward a 'Hothouse' Point of No Return 🚩 😓 ☠️

By Joe McCarthy

AUG. 7, 2018

SNIPPET:

Now a group of scientists is warning that the Paris climate agreement goal of keeping global temperatures from rising 2 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels is not aggressive enough to protect the planet from catastrophic consequences. The reason, according to the Guardian, is because even more powerful feedback loops will be triggered upon reaching this temperature threshold.

In a paper published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, the authors map out a range of anticipated climate feedback loops.

For example, as the oceans continue to warm, coral reefs and all the environmental benefits they provide will continue to disappear, causing marine ecosystems to further deteriorate. As precipitation patterns shift, some regions are getting more rainfall, inundating forested areas to the point where they can no longer absorb as much greenhouse gas emissions. And as ice sheets melt, more sun is being absorbed by surrounding oceans, leading to warming waters and more ice melt.
