ABSTRACT
The article discusses climate research in the journals "Geophysical Research Letters" and "Nature Climate Change" by Matthew England and colleagues at the University of New South Wales in Sydney, Australia and Masahiro Watanabe of the University of Tokyo in Japan and colleagues, respectively. According to each study's climate models, unless greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions are cut, the chance of a global warming hiatus drops to almost zero after 2030.
