Global warming has consistently been one of the most-challenged and polarizing concepts in the scientific or political landscape over the course of the last several years. While some deny the existence of a human-impacted climate change – others argue that there is no evidence that supports the notion that a human could have had an impact on our overall climate. That being said though, the argument has gotten significantly harder to make for scientists and political figures who believe global warming is a thing of fiction thanks to new data which was release this week.
This week two major populations released papers which documented just how severely the temperature is actually about to spike here on Earth. The studies utilized surface temperatures and temperature cycles of the oceans – specifically the Pacific Ocean – and found that the two correlate directly. As it turns out pattern looks vaguely as though the temperature of the Earth follows the trend and pattern of the oceans around Earth. This information reveals the connection that exists when it comes to temperature on Earth, and how we as humans are in for a serious warm up.
That being said though the real debate is around whether this will be the wake up call that the majority of the science community has said we’ve needed for years. We’re expelling greenhouse gases at a rate that really isn’t tollerable for Earth to sustain itself at this pace, and at the end of the day how we act in the coming years could have grave impacts on the overall health of Earth in generations to come. The study now though that ocean oscillation does in fact have an impact on this conversation – will generate future studies that will hopefully support the findings and prevent major catastrophes. That being said though, this comes shortly after scientists and meteorologists have said that there is a significant dry spell that is coming for the western portions of the United States – that pales in comparison to the dry spell that is currently being experience.
The climate is changing in a severe way and at the end of the day it’s important to see the changes, and work through them – rather than ignoring them. Scientists and activists alike are suggesting that this will be the opportunity that we have to stop this before the situation gets worse.
