Heatwaves will reoccur for the next FOUR years predict scientists

Scientists have used a new forecast system to predict that the years 2018 to 2022 are going to be an "anomalously warm" period, with greater chance of extreme temperatures.

Following a summer of heatwaves and forest fires in the northern hemisphere, the study in the journal Nature Communications suggests there will be little respite for the planet until at least 2022, and possibly not even then.

Due to climate change, the planet has already gained 1 ° C since the pre-industrial era, which averages + 0.01 ° C per year. Rather, it was a cooling phase in these natural climate variations that largely offset the impacts of man-made climate change in the 2000s.

Research leader Dr Florian Sevellec, an Associate Professor in Ocean Physics within Ocean and Earth Science at the University of Southampton, said: "Warming caused by greenhouse gas emissions is not linear: it appears to have lapsed in the early 21st Century, a phenomenon known as a global warming hiatus".

"There is a high possibility that we will be at the peak of a warm phase for the next couple of years".

"A new method for predicting mean temperatures, however, suggests that the next few years will likely be hotter than expected".

The scientist built his forecasting system by statistical "hind-casting". The scientists said there's also a "dramatic increase [in likelihood] of up to 400 percent" that the oceans will experience "extreme warm events" over the next five years.

"While we can't be sure exactly how things will play out, at the moment the odds are higher for hot years", he said.

Others, however, warned of the model's limitations.

Over the next five years the world reign of heat waves and warm winters.

But Gabi Hegerl, professor of climate system science at the University of Edinburgh, warned the global system is not now able to predict heatwaves like the one seen in the United Kingdom this summer.

Climatologists explain that one of the most serious consequences of global warming are considered periods of abnormal weather, that is, prolonged heavy rains or unexplained periods of drought.
