A new study warns that even if nations fight against carbon emissions and to pledge, as part of the historical 2015 Paris climate agreement, the sea level will continue to rise.

The study, which was published in the scientific journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, noted that the sea level would rise approximately 20 cm by the year 2300 of the emissions between 2016 and 2030, when the Paris Agreement is null and void.

“Even if we were to meet the original goals of the Paris convention, the sea-level commitment of global warming will be significant,” said one of the study’s co-author, Oregon State University, climate scientist, Peter Clark, in a statement. “As we pump more carbon into the atmosphere, and the increase in temperature is almost immediate.

The ice is in the ocean off of the southern continent, has steadily increased in 1979, and hit a record high in the year 2014. But after three years, the average annual extent of Arctic sea ice hit its lowest mark, was the destruction of the three-and-a-half years of gains, and then some, according to July 2019 at the latest study.

THE RISE IN SEA LEVEL COULD THREATEN UP TO 480 MILLION PEOPLE, A NEW STUDY CLAIMS

Clark went on to say, “However, with the increase of the sea level rise will take much more time to react to the global warming of the earth. If you get an ice cube out of the freezer and put it in the car and it will take some time for it to melt. The bigger the ice cube, the longer it will take to melt.”

The statement in the study, pointed out that the estimates of sea-level rise is not a factor in any possible impacts on the Antarctic ice sheet is melting.

The study is the first of its kind to “quantify how much sea level is expected to rise in the emission of carbon, in the property subject to the agreement of Paris,” the statement added. Led by the U. N., the purpose of the agreement in Paris is to limit the global temperature increase to below 2 degrees Celsius.

In a separate study, published in August, suggested that the sea ice in the Arctic could completely disappear until the end of September each year, when the average global temperature to increase by as much as 2 degrees Celsius, and climate change continue to worsen.

MORE THAN 11,000 SCIENTISTS ARE WARNING OF A ‘CLIMATE EMERGENCY’

The study follows on from the news that the Home manager has begun the process of pulling out the positioning, the 2015 Paris climate agreement.

Secretary of state Mike Pompeo said Monday that it has submitted a formal notification to the United Nations (un). This begins the cancellation process, which is not an official for one year. His statement was hailed as America’s carbon dioxide pollution, budget cuts, and the name of the Paris deal will be an “unfair economic burden” to the U.S. economy.

Nearly 200 countries around the world, including China, have signed the climate treaty in which each country sets its own targets to cut emissions of heat-trapping gases that cause climate change.
