Scientists: Earth to be 1.5 degrees warmer than the late 1800s in just nine years

科學家:地球溫度在9年內便會升至比19世紀末高1.5度

The temperature of our home planet Earth could notch up by 1.5 degree Celsius (which is a significant amount)than what it used to be in the late 1800s in a span of merely 9 years, a new research suggests.

我們的星球地球,溫度相較於19世紀末的日常,可能在未來短短9年內升高達攝氏1.5度(這是相當大的數值),一項新研究指出。

Owing to the effects of the emission of green house gases, a paper in the journal Geophysical Research Letters reported that the natural climate variations in the Pacific may have provided a "temporary buffer". This may or might have already disturbed the Interdecadal Pacific Oscillation(IPO)cycle. As a result of which, we may receive higher temperatures in the span of the next 10-20 years.

肇因於溫室氣體排放的效應,一篇刊登於「地球物理研究通訊」期刊的研究指出,太平洋的自然氣候變化可能已提供「暫時性緩衝」。而該情況或許已擾亂「太平洋年代際震盪」(IPO)週期。因此,我們在未來10到20年間可能必須承受更高的氣溫。

According to the Paris climate agreement, the governments are supposed to pursue the aim of keeping a check on global warming below 1.5 degree Celcius. But, according to this research, we could hit that level before the end of new decade.

根據巴黎氣候協定,各國政府應追求確保控制全球暖化低於攝氏1.5度的目標。不過,根據這項研究,我們可能在未來10年結束前就達到這個階段。
