Climate Adam: Is Global Warming Speeding Up?

Posted on 8 April 2024 by Guest Author

This video includes conclusions of the creator climate scientist Dr. Adam Levy. It is presented to our readers as an informed perspective. Please see video description for references (if any).

Thanks to climate change, 2023 has shattered heat records, and 2024 is continuing where last year left off. With this devastating heat driving extreme weather - from heatwaves to downpours to wildfires - across the globe, scientists are increasingly asking if global warming could be accelerating. So what does the evidence show? Is the heating up of our planet speeding up? If so, what does this climate change mean for our future? And can we still hit the brakes and halt global warming?

  1. Adam, 

    Please tell me what your credentials are in order for me to understand who I'm listening to.

    If you are genuinely curious, you could try following the link behind "Dr. Adam Levy", near the end of the first line in the green box.

  3. Steveeeeej @1 : Also, google is your friend, independently.

    Dr Adam is intelligent, well-informed, yet a tad histrionic..

    I suppose that's better than being the opposite !

  4. Tamino adjusts the raw data for 1) volcanic aerosols 2) El Nino/La Nina cycle, 3) solar variations.  The adjusted graph is much clearer that the global warming signal is accelerating upward, as should be expected from the input signal (greenhouse gases).  NASA GISS yearly averages, adjusted, shows the clearest signal: NASA GISS temp curve, adjusted, yearly avgsI got this link from this website a few weeks ago.

  5. ubrew12,

    Tamino subsequently posted an OP titled 'Accelerations' which features this NOAA adjusted data (the last two graphics) showing a pair of break-points in the rate of warming, 1976 & 2013, with the pre-2013 rate being quoted as +0.165ºC/decade and the post-2013 rate measuring a rather dramatic +0.4ºC/decade. But that said, there will be very big 'error bars' on that last value. Additionally Tamino's adjustments did result in 2023 temperature being increased (by +0.02ºC) which, given the cause of the "absolutely gobsmackingly bananas" 2023 temperatures remain unresolved, may be very wrong.
