Extreme weather may become normal around Indian Ocean by 2050 : worldleaks
If the world continues to do nothing to control climate change, extreme weather conditions, like torrential rains and bad droughts, will become the normal around the equator by 2050, a new study has warned.
According to New Scientist, scientists from the Australian research agency CSIRO studied how climate change will affect Indian Ocean’s positive and negative oscillation by finding latest climate models.
In the positive phase, temperatures of the sea surface rise in the Arabian Sea and fall around Indonesia, and vice-e-versa in the negative phase.
The research warned that by 2100, these events will be at the mild end of the spectrum, but reducing planet-warming emissions soon may lessen the effect of such conditions.
One of the scientists, Wenju Cai, said that we will need to change our definitions to look up to the new normal conditions.
