Cuts in Greenhouse Gas Emissions Would Save Arctic Ice, Reduce Sea-level Rise
April 14, 2009
The impact of global warming can be greatly diminished if nations cut emissions of heat-trapping greenhouse gases by 70 percent this century, according to an NCAR-led study. The most dangerous potential aspects of climate change, including massive losses of Arctic ice and significant sea-level rise, could be partially avoided.
