Claim: ‘Climate change likely to persist for the next 10,000 years’


A group of international climate scientists warning that if carbon pollution continues at its current rate, it will wreak havoc on the global climate for more than 10,000 years.

Their statement is published in the journal Nature Climate Change.

Most of the debate over the impact of climate change has focused on rising temperatures over the past 150 years and sea level rise projections through the end of the century. However, the scientists say this view is too narrow and that policy-makers and the public need to consider longer-term effects of climate change.
