Climate change: How to avoid the worst effects of the future
The global temperature will likely stay elevated until 2070, scientists have said, and global sea levels will rise as a result.
But as the world faces the greatest risk of the worst consequences of climate change in decades, some are warning that the world will get stuck with the cost for decades or even centuries to come.
The first report of its kind, a draft of which has been circulated among researchers for several months, says climate change is a likely driver of the extreme weather events that are already unfolding around the world.
The study was released Tuesday in the journal Nature Climate Change.
It was authored by researchers from the United States and the Netherlands and included an analysis of data from around the globe.
It says global temperatures over the past century have risen by 0.2 degrees Celsius (0.6 Fahrenheit) since 1880, which is the period when scientists say the planet has been warming.
This is due to greenhouse gas emissions that have been blamed for a rise in global temperatures that is the worst in more than two decades.
The researchers also noted that sea levels are rising faster than previously thought and have accelerated in recent years, due to melting glaciers in Greenland and Antarctica.
The research was done in a collaborative effort with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and the National Centre for Atmospheric Research (NCAR).
The report also found that global land areas are expected to be lost by 2100, from 1.6 billion to 1.7 billion square kilometers.
This is equivalent to more than half of the area of India and Bangladesh combined, the researchers wrote.
It found that sea level is rising faster in places such as the Mediterranean and North Africa than previously expected.
This could put many cities, including Paris, Rome, and New York, at risk, as well as the U.S. capital and the cities of Boston and Chicago.
It also said the impacts of sea level rise are expected in parts of Asia and Africa.
This could cause severe disruption to infrastructure and cause economic losses in these regions, the report said.
This study shows that sea-level rise is a key driver of extreme weather in 2050.
We can’t wait to see how this climate change will play out in the future.
“The potential of climate and sea-levels change to lead to significant changes in the urban landscape is real,” said co-author Thomas M. Haug, a professor of geography and geography at the University of Queensland in Australia.
“We are seeing the effects in cities that were once thought to be safe.”
The report says sea levels have risen faster than they have in the past.
It found that the rate of sea-surface rise has risen by 1.1 meters (5 feet) per year since 1880.
The researchers estimated that sea rise could be as much as 2.4 meters (9 feet) by the end of the century.
In their paper, the authors say the global average sea level will rise by 1 meter (5.7 feet) each year for the next 100 years.
The average global sea level at the end.of the century is expected to increase to 3.3 meters (11.9 feet), according to the report.
The report did not say how quickly sea levels could rise.
It said the sea level could rise as much or more rapidly than at any time since 1900.
The authors say this is likely to be exacerbated by a combination of two factors.
First, the melting of the Greenland ice sheet has been slowing the rate at which the glaciers are receding and that this has resulted in an acceleration in sea-rise.
The authors say ice sheets in the Antarctic have also been retreating.
And second, there are natural factors that could amplify the rate by which sea levels rise.
They say these include sea-water runoff, which has slowed the melting and accelerated the rate.
The report does not say what the factors are.
Scientists have been warning for decades that climate change could lead to devastating consequences.
This research indicates that climate changes are a likely cause of some of these impacts, and may even increase some of them, according to scientists.
A study published in the British journal Nature earlier this year said climate change would cause a mass extinction of birds, mammals, and fish in some parts of the world by the middle of the 21st century.
The study also predicted that sea ice would shrink by an average of 1.3 percent by the mid-century and that glaciers would melt by about 0.7 percent.
This year, the U,S., and Canada all pledged to phase out fossil fuels and limit global warming to 2 degrees Celsius, which scientists have called the upper limit of dangerous human-caused climate change.
