CNN — A new report by a global biome ecologist suggests that humans have been contributing to a warming planet by changing the landscape and changing the chemistry of the atmosphere.
The report, published Monday in the journal Nature, found that the rate of global warming is likely to continue at the same rate in coming decades.
And it says the human influence is so significant that we must take drastic measures to stop it.
The authors of the report, which was conducted by a team from the University of Oxford and the University and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, said that the human impact on the world has been so great that it’s not just a question of what we can do to help but how.
“What is the most effective way to tackle climate change?
How can we do something about it?
There is no simple answer to that question,” lead author Chris Rapley said in a statement.
In the future, Rapley and his colleagues suggest that we should consider what is called a geoengineering strategy.
The strategy involves removing or slowing down natural processes like CO2, methane, nitrous oxide and carbon dioxide.
This could involve changing the climate to match the changes humans are causing.
But we should also consider the possibility that we can reverse some of these changes, the authors say.
“The answer is no,” Rapley told CNN.
“We should not be doing geoengineering.”
He said the current research showed that geoengineering could be a viable way to stop the planet from warming by increasing the amount of natural greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, such as carbon dioxide and methane.
The study, co-authored by anthropologist Christopher Stringer and ecologist Andrew Bamberger, found no evidence that geoengineers could reverse climate change.
“We found very strong evidence that our findings are robust,” Stringer told CNN on Monday.
Bamberger and Stringer wrote that their analysis showed that a doubling of CO2 concentrations in the Earth’s atmosphere would only have a modest effect on the rate at which the planet warmed, even after accounting for the changes that humans are making.
The researchers also found that, despite the high level of uncertainty in their results, their findings should be considered when planning climate change mitigation efforts.
In addition to the Oxford and NOAA team, the study authors include the University at Buffalo, the University in Vienna, University of East Anglia, University at Bristol, the Carnegie Institution, the Natural History Museum of Denmark, the British Antarctic Survey, the International Centre for the Study of Climate Change, the Australian National University, and the United Nations Environment Programme.
Rapley said the researchers used a variety of different techniques to make their assessment.
They analyzed the data from the satellite data and ocean surface temperatures from a range of sites, such a the Arctic Ocean, Greenland, and Antarctic ice.
They also looked at the changes in ocean currents and other weather patterns, including the changing land surface temperature.
“These data are a very good way to look at global change, but they’re not the only data,” he said.
In some places, the researchers found changes that were not consistent with climate change, he added.
For example, the Arctic and Antarctic sea ice were shrinking, but the land surface temperatures were increasing.
“If you look at the Arctic, it looks like there’s a lot more sea ice, which means the land has been warming a lot,” he told CNN, noting that some of the ice has already melted.
“But that’s not what you see if you look from the Antarctic, which is just a lot of snow,” he added, referring to the Arctic continent.
The paper’s findings also show that humans’ contribution to the Earth is small relative to the total emissions that the world currently has to deal with.
They found that in recent years, the amount the world had emitted in total has increased by about 0.7 percent a year, about the same amount as the total CO2 emissions.
The researchers said they have some questions about how humans could make the changes needed to stop global warming.
Rapley noted that they do not yet know what the tipping point is in the climate change process, when the changes are too great to be reversed by any amount of geoengineering.
“I don’t think we can know the precise mechanism that causes the temperature to go up, but we do know it’s getting warmer and more acidic,” he noted.
“And there’s no doubt that the ocean will warm in a few years, and this is going to have a huge effect on our oceans.”
The authors also point out that their research doesn’t take into account the impact of human activity on the planet’s ecosystems.
They noted that some species of fish, like tuna, are adapting to changes in the environment by increasing their metabolism, increasing the number of fish they can spawn and by eating more fish.
The scientists also pointed out that climate change is likely going to cause severe disruptions to food production.
They said that in the coming decades, the world could see extreme weather, and food shortages.”It’s going
