Off the east coast of Greenland, salty water is sinking to the deep carrying atmospheric heat with it, consequently slowing global warming.

Has global warming been stalled for 2015

  1. 1. www.worldweatheronline.com Has global warming been stalled in 2015?
  2. 2. www.worldweatheronline.com Off the east coast of Greenland, salty water is sinking to the deep carrying atmospheric heat with it, consequently slowing global warming. What’s this about?
  3. 3. www.worldweatheronline.com This is strange seeing as the amount of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere is still increasing. Climate scientists have therefore been searching for the ‘sink’ that is absorbing all the missing atmospheric heat.
  4. 4. www.worldweatheronline.com Where has the atmospheric heat gone? • The missing heat could have gone into the deep depths of the Atlantic Ocean. • Other scientists previously thought that the heat went into the Pacific Ocean. If the heat had escaped into the Pacific Ocean, it would have been the result of intensifying trade winds related to the El Niño-La Niña cycle. This would mean the current stalling of global warming would be over as soon as the next El Niño. However if the majority is ending up in the Atlantic Ocean, we have an additional 10-15 years before global warming progresses at its original rate.
  5. 5. www.worldweatheronline.com • The sensors included floats that dive nearly a mile (1,500 metres) beneath the surface to measure the temperature and salt content of the water. Will it last forever? • Global warming has not stopped, it is merely on hiatus. In the next 15 years global warming will start to increase at its previous rate, unless we do something about it. Is the Atlantic responsible?
