In the article I read (Long-term warming likely to be significant despite recent slowdown) a new study shows earth’s climate will continue to warm during this century even despite a recent slowdown in the rate of global warming. The research done is new and more detailed than before and suggests that the earth is likely to experience roughly to experience twenty percent more warming. Global temperatures have increased at a rate of 0.22 Fahrenheit per decade since the early fifties. But as of late the temperature increase has only been 0.09 Fahrenheit. It goes on to say that atmospheric carbon dioxide is continuing to rise at a similar rate to previous decades as well as saying that carbon dioxide is the most significant greenhouse gas produced by humans. It also says that the Northern Hemisphere plays a stronger role than the Southern Hemisphere in transient climate change, the difference means previous studies have underestimated the cooling effect of aerosols. The reason that most of the climate change is because of the northern hemisphere is because most of the population of the world lives in this hemisphere and also since the Northern Hemisphere there is more industrialized zone this gives aerosols more of a chance to be released into the atmosphere as well as many other greenhouse gases, since most of earth landmasses are in the Northern hemisphere, this furthers the effects because land, snow, and ice adjust faster to atmospheric changes than oceans do. The article goes on and says that the research hinges on a new and more detailed calculation of the sensitivity of Earth's climate to the factors that cause it to change, such as greenhouse gas emissions. The study found Earth is likely to experience roughly twenty percent more warming than estimates that were largely based on surface temperature observations during the past hundred and fifty years. Shindell suggest that countries around the world need to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to avoid damaging the ozone and climate even more.
This article was a more in depth one which expands on why temperature is rising and how even in the past it is still influencing how temperature is now. My opinion for the article would be that if the author could more
