Global Warming, Tropics May Develop New Climates By 2100

new global warming study carried out by researchers at the University
of Wisconsin-Madison and the University of Wyoming, predicts that many
current climate zones will vanish entirely by the year 2100, replaced
by climates unknown in today’s world.

Global climate models for the next century forecast the complete
disappearance of several existing climates currently found in tropical
highlands and regions near the poles, while large swaths of the tropics and subtropics may develop new climates unlike anything seen today.

Driven by worldwide greenhouse gas emissions, the climate modeling
study uses average summer and winter temperatures and precipitation
levels to map the differences between climate zones today and in the
year 2100 and anticipates large climate changes worldwide.
