Climate Change To Decline Global Economic Growth—New Study Shows

According to a new study, climate change will take a toll on universal economic output as high temperatures restrict industries from farming to manufacturing. The new study was published by the NBER (National Bureau of Economic Research). The record-breaking warming worldwide made headlines all the way through July, and now investigators say a constant increase in average temperature globally by 0.04°C every year, with the exception of major regulation breakthroughs, is set to decrease real GDP per capita by 7.22% globally by the end of 2100. The scientists from the IMF (International Monetary Fund), the CU (University of Cambridge), and the USC (University of Southern California) find out little clues that precipitation had a brunt on GDP, but in its place observed a large temperature-linked effect.

The U.S. is anticipated to experience its GDP per capita turn down of 10.5%, China by 4.3%, and the EU (European Union) by 4.6% in the coming 81 Years as an outcome of temperature fluctuations. In simple words, if international GDP halves or doubles by 2100, the findings suggest real GDP per capita will still be around 7.22%. In the closer term, and presuming no main policy changes and persisted greenhouse emissions, the climate-associated drag on global GDP per capita is estimated to exceed by 2.5% and surpass 3.7% by 2050 in the U.S.

Speaking of climate change, scientists have been undervaluing the rate of climate change. In the recent time, the U.K. Met Office declared an alteration to the Hadley Center historical study of SST (sea surface temperatures), indicating that the oceans have become warm by almost 0.1°C more than earlier thought. The need for alteration arises from the long-known problem that in the past SST was measured by using a variety of fault-prone methods like using open buckets, canvas bags, and lamb’s wool–wrapped thermometers.
