Cooling the planet: Work doesn’t stop at net zero, scientists say

ATS faculty members Elizabeth Barnes and Patrick Keys were involved in a study that sheds new light on how quickly Earth’s temperature moderates in response to dramatic cuts in greenhouse gas emissions. Earth’s global temperatures would need at least a decade to stabilize after the entire globe cuts carbon emissions to zero, according to new research that involves Colorado State University’s world-renowned atmospheric scientists. This work is described in more detail in a CSU Source article written by Emily Wilmsen, linked here.
