In reaction to a recent column on climate change published in the New York Times and written by Joe Nocera, Joe Romm of Climate Progress points out that cutting carbon emissions will not reverse the effects of climate change. A 2009 paper from NOAA explained that climate change is “largely irreversible for 1000 years”, but the idea that reducing or eliminating carbon emissions will undo the effects of climate change is a widespread climate myth. Reducing carbon emissions is vital to stabilize the climate system and prevent extreme warming–but temperatures would continue to rise even if emissions were drastically reduced because of the effects of carbon that have already been emitted. Carbon capture and storage (CCS) technologies are often cited as one method of reducing emissions and “reversing” climate change, however CCS is “incredibly expensive” and is not cost effective in comparison to low-carbon technologies.
Summer is hotter, winter is warmer. The world as we know it is getting hotter and hotter as the years go by. Global warming is affecting our world in a negative slope. It is affecting our lives and animals’ lives. Across the glob countries are constantly breaking records
