Scientists Say Global Warming Has Been “Hugely Underestimated”
A major study recently published in New Scientist found that “scientists may have hugely underestimated the extent of global warming because temperature readings from southern hemisphere seas were inaccurate,” and said that ACD is “worse than we thought” because it is happening “faster than we realized.”
From the above mentioned study:
Comparisons of direct measurements with satellite data and climate models suggest that the oceans of the southern hemisphere have been sucking up more than twice as much of the heat trapped by our excess greenhouse gases than previously calculated
Also covered in This Changes Everything: Capitalism vs The Climate, the improvements in climate measurement technology has opened up the sobering thought that we have yet to see additional effects, on top of the already cataclysmic effects already being predicted. The complexity of the ecosystem should be clue one about how much we still dont know. Now we see evidence that it may be closer than we have long thought to when the chickens come home to roost.
