New research suggests that global warming could cause temperature swings to get unusually extreme. And the regions where the biggest swings will occur are among the poorest in the world and the least responsible for the greenhouse gas emissions that cause global warming.
Climate scientists already know that as the planet warms, there's a bigger chance of extreme weather: bigger hurricanes, for example, or heavier rainfall.
But a temperature roller coaster could be on the way as well, according to the study, which appears in the journal Science Advances.
Sebastian Bathiany at Wankeningen University in the Netherlands says his calculations indicate that variations in temperature will increase - the normal swings between high and low temperatures will get wider. The variations aren't apparent yet but will be in coming decades, Bathiany says.
This won't happen everywhere, because different conditions affect temperature in different parts of the world. In the tropics, soil moisture plays a big role in moderating or "buffering" temperature swings, according to Bathiany. It's kind of like the so-called Goldilocks effect moisture keeps temperatures somewhere in between very hot and very cold.
But a warming atmosphere dries out the soil. "And when you have drier conditions," says Bathiany, "then the temperature fluctuations are not buffered as much any more, so you have larger temperature variability."
Bathiany says if the planet continues to warm, temperature variability will be especially pronounced in the Amazon Basin and parts of Africa and Southeast Asia wet places where a warming climate is drying things out.
Many countries in these regions "are not only poorer to deal with the impacts," he says, "but also in this case the impacts will be worse" than in other parts of the world.
Worse because temperature variation in places like Europe and the U.S. isn't expected to change much. Variation in northern latitudes isn't dependent so much on soil moisture but on atmospheric weather patterns. In fact, temperature variability may actually decrease in those regions and in the Arctic but with a notable exception: Summertime in the U.S. could see more temperature extremes.
Extremes, in fact, seem to be part of what a warmer world will bring. Another new study found that California will see more extreme wet and dry periods this century. They're calling that the "whiplash" effect of global warming.
There must be a lot of money spent to perpetuate the global warming hoax and to push the agenda 21.
Hot in the summer?
Cold in the Winter?
I’ll try to be prepared.
Now it is a temperature roller coaster. Hahahahaha
Observe what is happening, then change your models to predict that.
The climate change clown show is entertaining at least, albeit far from scientific.
I like roller coasters..................
The Global Warming Inc. crowd keeps changing their criteria. This is why more and more people are waking up to the fact this whole thing is another leftist money grab. Algore made himself rich peddling this scam!
Global warming now causes both warmer weather and cooler weather. I’m impressed at just how flexible this scam has become.
When do we get to start screaming: “We’re all gonna die!!!”?
Coming? It’s been here already in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. One day near 90, the next in the 40s. Sunshine and warm one day, cold and rainy the next. Happens every Spring.
Another day, another dire prediction of the end of the world with persons of color, children, women, LGBTFUBARs hardest hit. This schtick is getting old.
or could not.
“And the regions where the biggest swings will occur are among the poorest in the world and the least responsible for the greenhouse gas emissions that cause global warming.”
Reinforcing the first-world liberal guilt trip!
You mean the climate is going to be up and down....like it’s always been?
No matter what happens, somehow these ahs are making a ton of money in the field of scientific guessing.
This is how the Warmists will drag their scam along a little further - claiming that cooling, actually due to changes in the Sun, is proof of human-caused climate change, and we must re-double our efforts against that ghastly destroyer, CO2.
There was frost on my windshield on April 30th... stop spewing the garbage about this nonsense.
If all it took to destroy the planet were a few hundred more molecules per million of C02, the earth would have died out long ago.
There is far more real threat to humanity from the fact we have polluted the earth so much with plastics that it is now part of the food and water cycles, that there is from CO2 levels.
Want to focus on a world wide calamity, that is no doubt man made, focus on that. I personally believe the vast majority of metabolic chronic diseases we are witnessing are a direct result of large scale exposure to plastics and their chemicals.
They don’t stop with this BS.
