High-resolution Greenland ice core records reveal two warming events at the end of the last ice age involved warming of more than 10 °C. Furthermore the warming transition beginning 14,700 years ago occurred within only three years.
During the last deglaciation there was several episodes of rapid and substantial sea level rise. A recent study has found that during one of these, sea level rose by about 17 meters over a period that does not exceed 350 years, but could be as low as a century.
Between 2005 and 2017 the U.S. economy as measured by real GDP expanded by about 20 %. Over this same period, emissions from power generation dropped which is evidence of a decoupling between economic growth and power generation.
For most of the past 18,000 years warm temperatures in the North Pacific often correspond to cold temperatures in the North Atlantic and vice versa. In this study it is revealed that the occasional synchronicity in the North Pacific and North Atlantic climates correspond to periods of abrupt Northern Hemisphere warming.
