Worldwide industrial development, carbon dioxide levels have increased dramatically in the past century
A host of research studies have explored the relationship between per capita income and carbon dioxide emissions. Though it is commonly thought that the most populous countries are those that emit the most CO2, research has shown that population is not a key determinant of overall environmental impact.
Plain Spoken Scientist on Climate Change Implications: “Holy ***t!”
Climate Crocks about the recent nature study, which again showed that global temperature, lags Co2 atmospheric concentration amounts. There is a lot of warming in the pipe - incoming.
Jeremy Shakun is lead author of the new study in Nature this week, confirming from multiple proxy records that “temperature is correlated with and generally lags CO2 during the last (that is, the most recent) deglaciation.”
He was interviewed for Nature.com by Paige Brown. (for voice interview, and “plain speech”, see the podcast audio above).
