Earth's Energy Imbalance and Implications
by J. Hansen, M. Sato, P. Kharecha, K. von Schuckmann
Publisher: arXiv 2011
Number of pages: 52
Improving observations of ocean temperature confirm that Earth is absorbing more energy from the sun than it is radiating to space as heat, even during the recent solar minimum. The inferred planetary energy imbalance provides fundamental verification of the dominant role of the human-made greenhouse effect in driving global climate change.
