October 10, 2013 - By 2047, A Really Hot Earth? “One can think of this year as a kind of threshold into a hot new world from which one never goes back.” -Chris Field, Ph.D., Carnegie Inst. Climate Scientist
According to Univ. of Hawaii study published
in October 9, 2013, Nature journal, nearly 300 cities studied in 39 different computer models will warm to an “environment like we (humans) had never seen before.” Camilo Mora, Ph.D., Biological Geographer, describes that in a decade, Kingston, Jamaica will be “permanently hot.” Other cities will follow such as Singapore in 2028, Mexico City in 2031, Cairo in 2036, Phoenix and Honolulu in 2043 and then the whole world by 2047 will be hotter globally for the foreseeable future.
