In comparison ...

We all know it's getting warmer, the question to ask is, how fast is the earth heating up? Researchers are now finding out the answer and it's disquieting to say the least.

University of Arizona-led effort to reconstruct Earth's climate since the last ice age, about 24,000 years ago, highlights the main drivers of climate change and how far out of bounds human activity has pushed the climate system.

The study, published this week in Nature, had three main findings:

"This reconstruction suggests that current temperatures are unprecedented in 24,000 years, and also suggests that the speed of human-caused global warming is faster than anything we've seen in that same time," said Jessica Tierney, a UArizona geosciences associate professor and co-author of the study.

When looking at the temps of the last ice age, compared to today, the difference is most revealing.

In context ...

Any questions?
