(Mirror Daily, United States) – There have been talks recently that climate change was tamed in the early 2000s and then it started wreaking havoc on the planet, once again. The 2015 studies disproved the theory altogether, but it seems that new evidence surfaced and the scientific community is not sure that climate change was tamed in the Early 2000s.
Climate change or global warming has been a subject of debate since the very first time that the theory was presented in front of the scientific community and the general public. There are still people who believe it doesn’t exist at all. Unfortunately, it is a very real phenomenon that is affecting our planet and damaging entire ecosystems.
But it seems that global warming can be battled as scientist found proof that climate change was tamed in the early 2000s. The so-called “taming” means that the rate in which the levels of global temperature increased was slower than previously recorded.
The present climate models showed that the temperature should have increased more in that period. This means that something generated a delay in global warming.
Of course, the skeptics used this hiatus in the pattern to claim that the entire theory is a hoax.
John Fyfe, the lead author of the study that claims that climate change was tamed in the early 2000s says that the mathematical patterns do not match the actual observations that were made in that time.
According to Fyfe, there was a period between the 50s and the 70s when temperatures were flat. That led to a lower emission of greenhouse gasses, sulfate aerosols, and all other polluting industrial waste.
The lower the emissions, the more heat got bounced back into space, leading to a general cooling down of the planet. But Fyfe discovered that from 1972 up until 2001 the temperature levels spiked with 0.170 degrees.
Fyfe declared that his study is more accurate than the one performed in 2015 by the NOAA (National Atmospheric and Oceanic Administration) because it takes into account certain variables that affected the general levels of global temperatures.
The scientist also added that the climate models that NOAA used in its study were too modest in the sense that they minimized the impact of volcano eruptions on the planet’s temperature. Also, he said that the previous study put too much focus on the solar radiation powered heat effect that took place at the beginning of the 21st century.
