A new report expected on climate change is outlining some interesting and unexpected developments.
According to current research findings from climate specialists at Scripps Institution of Oceanography, the causes of global warming may not be exactly as initially thought.
For decades carbon dioxide levels have been on the rise, and greenhouse gasses have remained a staple topic. However, it has been found that average global air temperatures have actually remained fairly stable for 15 years, in spite of the rise in emissions.
The new research suggests that cyclic cooling temperatures in the Pacific Ocean can help to explain this. The world’s oceans are in a fluctuating rotation of surface cooling that reverses and starts to warm up, thus affecting overall environmental temperatures.
The investigation into the oceanic connection to climate change has been ongoing since 1998 when a division was enlisted to study the issue. To examine and monitor the air’s temperature, complex floats have been employed into the water to record the oceans’ temperature levels across the board. 3000 units have been set into various spots throughout the water that are able to report the recorded data by satellite.
Other climate experts have also attributed climate change to similar factors, and have warned of rising ocean temperatures. However, several critics are already questioning the anticipated report, stating a tennis match of confusing topics and suggested actions.
Experts recommend that more attention and real action is needed in the way of provisions, like flood barrier structures, in order to protect against the threat of escalating water stages.
The new research definitely causes a turn in the conversation with climate change skeptics and activists alike. In addition, it proposes new inquiries into the discussion and what hopeful and constructive endeavors can be enlisted to address rising sea levels.
