In 34 years, the Earth will experience a new kind of hot -- study
Even though the Earth is warming, not every year is warmer than the year before. That's because natural climate cycles of warmth and cold are layered atop that human-caused warming trend. Now, a new study lays out a date for when our warmed Earth will surpass the climate's natural variability and temperatures will consistently sit higher than they ever have, if humans keep emitting greenhouse gases at current rates. That date is 34 years from now: 2047.
