A new simulation has revealed that global warming could cause stratocumulus clouds to disappear in as little as a century, which would add 8°C of extra warming. A state-of-the-art supercomputer simulation indicates that a feedback loop between global warming and cloud loss can push Earth’s climate past a disastrous tipping point in as little as a century.

“Humanity cannot afford to ignore such clear signals,” the U.S.-led team wrote in the journal Nature Climate Change of satellite measurements of rising temperatures over the past 40 years.

They said confidence that human activities were raising the heat at the Earth’s surface had reached a “five-sigma” level, a statistical gauge meaning there is only a one-in-a-million chance that the signal would appear if there was no warming.  https://www.reuters.com/article/us-climatechange-temperatures-idUSKCN1QE1ZU
