Seasonal climate change depends on cumulative human emissions of carbon dioxide throughout time

Seasonal climate change depends on cumulative human emissions of carbon dioxide throughout time

According to new research, a direct link exists between climate change during different seasons and cumulative carbon dioxide emissions.

In particular, the research indicates that seasonal and regional changes in temperature and, to a certain degree, precipitation can be estimated solely on the basis of carbon dioxide emissions, which makes it simpler to study the effects of climate change.
