(ORDO NEWS) — The earth began to absorb a lot of heat. For 15 years, the amount of solar radiation that penetrates the planet has doubled. Researchers from NASA and the National Oceanic and Satellite Administration of the upper atmosphere have studied this phenomenon in more detail.
Our planet absorbs heat from the Sun, and then gives off an equal amount of energy into space. In recent years, scientists have noticed that this balance has begun to erode. The results of the latest study have already been published in the scientific journal Geophysical Research Letters.
Oceanographer Gregory Johnson said that the amount of heat absorbed can be compared to if each person turned on 20 electric kettles at the same time.
The planet really heats up very quickly and the amount of heat absorbed is constantly increasing. This is very dangerous for humanity. Scientists hope that this figure will decrease on its own in the next 10-15 years.
The planet’s absorption of solar heat affects global warming as well as extreme weather conditions. This contributes to rapid climate change across the planet.
