Study of Glacier Ice Air Bubbles Prove Occurrence of Major Climate Change in Response to CO2 Levels

 

ImageGlobal Warming is still an issue prevalent in the present, though the initial hype about it has worn off. Also, because of incorrect recording of data, people misinterpreted the data that was collected from the ice glaciers. Air bubbles in the glaciers show carbon dioxide emissions and climate change has been tightly coupled, and that carbon dioxide emissions do elevate the temperature. Dr. Parrenin’s paper compiled a record of global temperature since the last Ice Age, and the rise in carbon dioxide preceded the rise in temperature. People had thought that temperature increases lead to the increase in carbon dioxide, but in fact, it is the other way around, as shown by Dr. Parrenin’s records and papers.

The levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere has jumped 41 percent due to technological advancements, since the Industrial Revolution began in the 18th century and also because of the growth of the human population, and unless the emissions are controlled better, it could double or triple, further raising the temperature and disrupting the climate.

Although the initial panic and frenzy about Global Warming has worn off, it is still an issue that needs to be dealt with to preserve the planet as it is, as climate change affects all the organisms living on planet Earth, not just humans.
