Debunking The Anthropocene Equation: Could It Be The Key To Solve Climate Change?
A significant number of scientists have recently revealed ta=hat human activity is to be considered accountable for changing the Earth's climate as much as 170 times as compared to certain natural forces. It was in line with this notion that experts have claimed that for the first time in history, they have been able to come up with an equation that could potentially show that humans are behind global warming. The said mathematical equation is then believed to describe the impact of human activity on the earth.
Earth's Condition Over The Years
According to reports revealed by Independent, researchers have recently found that global temperatures decreased by 0.01C per century over the last 7,000 years which they considered to be the baseline rate. However, they have revealed that in the last 45 years, it has surprisingly increased by the equivalent of 1.7C per century, and the 12 warmest years on record have come since 1998. Now, the authors of the new study has claimed that while the astronomical and geophysical as well as biospheric forces have driven change in the "Earth system" over its four billion-year existence, human activity has "driven exceptionally rapid rates of change.
The Anthropocene Equation
Meanwhile, as stated in the research, the study has found that human activities now rival the great forces of nature in driving changes to the Earth system. In one of their statements reported by The Guardian, Professor Will Steffen, a climate change expert and researcher at the Australian National University, together with his co-researcher, Owen Gaffney, from the Stockholm Resilience Centre, has allegedly devised the "Anthropocene Equation" with the hopes of determining the impact of this period of intense human activity on the earth. Gaffney adds that the equation they developed the said mathematical equation by homing in on the rate of change of Earth's life support system such as the atmosphere, oceans, forests and wetlands, waterways and ice sheets and fabulous diversity of life.
Furthermore, it was found that in the equation, astronomical and geophysical forces tend to zero because of their slow nature or rarity, as do internal dynamics. All these forces are known to continue in exerting pressure, but currently on orders of magnitude less than human impact. Ultimately, the research concludes that the failure to reduce anthropological climate change could also lead to societal collapse.
