A recent report from the White House cites recent studies which indicate a heat wave could envelop the earth in roughly 15 years that would claim the lives of over 10,000 people.
A report from USA Today, says the Obama Administration issued the warning Monday, April 4, 2016, claiming the summer of 2030 might be deadly for many on the planet. The report warns that 11,000 people could die because of rising temperatures by 2030, which could then rise to 27,000 persons by 2100.
The study was accomplished by the collaboration of over 100 government scientists and several federal agencies.
Data for the study is provided by government agencies like NOAA, AAAS, and NASA.
On the other hand, scientists who still disagree with current views on planetary warming, predominantly speak on behalf of non-governmental sources.
The NIPCC, is the international, non-governmental, version of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. The panel began in Milan, Italy with the intention of providing scientific analysis outside of the highly political environment within which the issue usually festers. NIPCC claims to be wholly unaffiliated with any governmental entity, and have received no government sponsorship.
Their findings are in partial disagreement with conclusions such as the recent statement by the White House. They state, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, (IPCC) does not attempt to “apply generally accepted methodologies to determine what fraction of current warming is natural or how much is caused by the rise in greenhouse gases.”
While the NIPCC does not entirely dispute the possibility of climate change, or rising global temperatures, they believe the IPCC continues to ignore “overwhelming evidence,” based on centuries-long time scales, the effects of the sun, and resultant atmospheric cloud effects which are considered to be associated with past climate changes. They say that could lead to the conclusion sun cycles might also responsible for 20th century warming trends.
The NIPCC also cites their belief that governmental studies are self-limited due to their heavy reliance on closed computer climate models.
