The earth can heat up to the level of three million years back


At the present level of emissions of CO ₂ by 2150 on the planet the climate similar to time of appearance of the first mammals will reign 50 million years ago. If the level of emissions of CO ₂ does not change, then by 2030 the climate of Earth will resemble on the fact that existed 3 million years ago. Authors of a research which results were published in the magazine of National Academy of Sciences of the USA (PNAS) came to such conclusion. If emissions of carbon dioxide are not reduced, in 2150 on the planet the climatic conditions similar to a situation will reign 50 million years ago when on Earth the first mammals appeared, it is specified further in article. "We approach very impressive changes which will happen for extremely short time", - one of participants of a research, the expert in climate Jack Williams of the university of Wisconsin in AFP interview said. Three million years ago on Earth the hot and arid climate reigned. Central America was under water, Greenland was not covered with ice, and sea level was 18 meters higher, than today. At the same time, as Williams specified, Greenland next century will not become green yet, and sea level will not rise by 18 meters as the speed of thawing of glaciers is not so high. However, according to him, together with warming of the planet many types of live organisms will disappear. Earlier the U.S. President Donald Trump said that he does not want to lose trillions of dollars on mitigation of consequences of climate change.
