Ten predictions about climate change that have come true

June 26, 2007 – 3:01 pm

Here are the hard facts about global warming that everyone should know, compiled for Times Online by internationally acclaimed writer, scientist and explorer Tim Flannery, author of The Weather Makers: Our changing climate and what it means for life on earth.

Ten predictions made by climate scientists that have come true (or are becoming true)

  1. That the Earth would warm as more CO2 was put into the atmosphere (Svante Arrhenius in 1893)
  2. That we’d begin to see noticable changes to Earth’s climate by around 2000 (some IPCC scientists ).
  3. That sea-level would start rising
  4. That Earth’s Ice would start melting rapidly (James Hanson)
  5. That hurricanes would increase in intensity (this one goes back to Alfred Russel Wallace in 1900)
  6. That species would start going extinct as a result of climate change.
  7. That Australia would start drying out (Hadley Centre scientists)
  8. That tropical diseases would increase
  9. That food crops would be adversely affected
  10. That the CO2 would begin to acidify the ocean
