Global temperatures could rise more than 1.5 degrees Celsius by 2026 if the Interdecadal Pacific Oscillation shifts into a positive phase.
The Interdecadal Pacific Oscillation, or IPO, is an ocean-atmosphere climate phenomenon that drives weather patterns and global temperatures. It's similar to the Pacific Decadal Oscillation, but covers a large portion of the Pacific.
According to a new study by climate scientists at the University of Melbourne, a positive phase IPO would dramatically accelerate global warming.
The IPO has remained in a negative phase since 1999, but significant oceanic and atmospheric warming over the last three years suggests the phenomenon could be on the verge of a shift.
"Even if the IPO remains in a negative phase, our research shows we will still likely see global temperatures break through the 1.5 degrees Celsius guardrail by 2031," researcher Ben Henley said in a news release.
The results of the new study, published in the journal Geophysical Research Letters, suggests a slowdown in global warming over the last two decades could be explained by the IPO's current negative phase.
"Although the Earth has continued to warm during the temporary slowdown since around 2000, the reduced rate of warming in that period may have lulled us into a false sense of security," Henley said. "The positive phase of the IPO will likely correct this slowdown. If so, we can expect an acceleration in global warming in the coming decades."

I want to collect all grant money given to these frauds PLUS INTEREST when their scam “predictions” turn out to be the total and complete BS that they are!
“Could”. What a weasel word!
So what you're saying is that it could get hotter....if it gets hotter (obfuscated). There's a revelation.
Yes, and don't worry that the Antarctic ice sheet is growing, it's all part of that false sense of security.
Replacing our animal and plant based diets to insects could reverse this.
And bugs are plentiful and cheap.
I suggest we start with prisons and ICE holding compounds, they need a healthy Green diet.
yada, yada, yada..
Interdecadal Pacific Oscillation..
I had this after eating 3 tacos last week :)
Could thaw out MILLIONS of acres for cultivation to save the STARVING world...Whoops, THAT didn’t happen did it ?? /sarc
oh..sorry, wrong thread..
and if my aunt had gonads she could be my uncle.
Do away with CO2 and ALL THE PLANTS DIE!!!!!!
Is this too subtle?
The ice age will be here if gory-gore gores us.
Someone introduce “Tercio de Muerte” to this bull (shi**er)
AleGOREically speaking, of course.
May he live long and prosper. In Cuba.
They aren’t keeping up with the news, are they? They should read Free Republic...5/7/2017
ICE AGE BRITAIN: River Thames will FREEZE OVER on ‘this date’ and could kill millions
In other words, are data don’t predict what we think they should so we will change our hypothesis
What are they going to do as the mini ice age hits full bore?
I want in on this IPO...
If it works it’s u gonna be Yuge!
Redistribution of wealth...yeah that will stop global warming. Pffft! Must destroy most of population so global masters can live and rule the rest of what is left of population. Living in dirt huts, w/o cars, electricity.
Investors go crazy when an IPO goes into the neg...
Woo Hoo! The latest batch of fraudulent data and hysterical “predictions”.
Been waiting a while. Wonder what took em so long.
