Researchers have announced that the man-made global warming over the past decade is getting slowed down and through a new research study, they have found out that the natural cycles in the Pacific and Atlantic oceans, cools off the current earth environment. As a result of this, in future the global warming will become reversed and the temperature of the earth will rise again.
Researchers from the Penn State University has found out the change in temperature of the environment and slowdown in the climate warming of the planet Earth.
Michael Mann, Distinguished Professor of Meteorology, Penn State said that,
“Our findings have strong implications for the attribution of recent climate changes,”
In the research study, Penn State University researchers clearly demonstrates and differentiates the human cause as well as natural climate variability for the climate changes. At the same time, researchers point out that North Pacific ocean as well as North Atlantic are undergoing an internal climate variability, and it results in slow down of global warming of our home planet.
Mann, Byron A. Steinman, assistant professor of geological sciences, Minnesota-Duluth University mentions that the global warming pause is a false pause and also he warns that the pause is due to the internal climatic changes and the internal currents that are created in the Pacific and Atlantic oceans. He also warns that the effect was temporary, and in the meanwhile, the effect will become reversed and global temperature will become rise.
The Atlantic Multidecadal Oscillation (AMO) describes how North Atlantic sea-surface temperatures tend to oscillate with a periodicity of about 50 to 70 years. The Pacific Decadal Oscillation (PDO) varies over a broader range of timescales. The researchers looked only at the portion of the PDO that was multidecadal — what they term the Pacific multidecadal oscillation (PMO).
In the author note, he mentioned,
“We find that internal multidecadal variability in northern hemisphere temperatures, rather than having contributed to recent warming, likely offset anthropogenic warming over the past decade,”
Researchers note that there is a huge influence over the temperature of earth due to the currents created in the northern region of those oceans.
