Date : 28th September 2009, Source : BBC Link to News Story



In a dramatic acceleration of forecasts for global warming, UK scientists say the global average temperature could rise by 4C (7.2F) as early as 2060.

Their computer models also factored in new findings on how carbon dioxide is absorbed by the oceans and forests. The finding was presented at an Oxford University conference exploring the implications of a 4C rise.
