Researchers have analyzed data from global satellites in a new way, saying that the type and amount of cloud cover on Earth could increase global warming.
Scientists from Imperial College London and the University of East Anglia based on statistical data they say Clouds warm the earth for a long time and help to intensify climate change.
The results of this study also indicate that the double concentration of carbon dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere is higher than the level of the pre-industrial period and it is unlikely that the temperature will rise below 2 degrees Celsius. In fact, it is possible that the average global temperature rise is more than 3 degrees Celsius.
The level of carbon dioxide, which was 280 ppm in the pre-industrial period, is approaching 420 ppm, and could double to pre-industrial levels by the middle of the century if there is no significant reduction in greenhouse gas emissions.
Clouds will also play an important role in climate change. Clouds can increase or decrease temperature depending on characteristics such as their density and altitude in the atmosphere.
Dr. Paolo Chepi of the Grantham Institute for Climate Change and the Environment in Imperial London also predicts that the Earth’s temperature will rise by 1.5 to 2 degrees Celsius, with clouds playing an important role. .
Some dense clouds can have a cooling effect on the earth’s temperature because they block sunlight from reaching the earth. But dense clouds will have the opposite effect on the earth’s temperature, and these clouds can also increase the effect of greenhouse gases. These clouds trap greenhouse gases. Finally, the type and amount of clouds in the world can have a greater impact on global warming potential.
