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

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.


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.


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.
