However, the scientists disagree. A scientist called the "greenhouse-earth" prediction "absurd" and not science.
Let's not forget that climate models regularly inflate the temperature rise.
A group of scientists issued a warning of doomsday that if people did not stop In the near future parts of the earth could become uninhabitable.
The renewed warning of a "greenhouse earth" made waves in the media, with outlets reporting that the planet was "dangerously close" to reach a turning point "19659015] At least one study author admitted to CNN that she hoped the summer heat would mean that "people might be more receptive to the urgency of the situation," the Observatory reported on Tuesday.
"People get a taste of the heatwaves, that's what climate change is all about," said Cohen. Author Katherine Richardson from the University of Copenhagen told CNN.
Overall, the tenor of the newspaper and the media coverage th on Earth is the immediate danger of reaching a climatic point leading to a sea level rise of 197 feet and global temperatures between 7 and 9 degrees Fahrenheit.
But are we really on the brink of disaster? There are at least a few reasons to be skeptical. (RELATED: Alarmists now argue that global warming is aggravating heat waves and cold spells)
Veteran climatologist Roger Pielke, Sr., lied to the doomsday newspaper and its accompanying coverage. Pielke tweeted "… [s] even absurd allegations [harm] actual effective policy with reducing the risks posed by extreme weather and other threats." He added that the doomsday sagas were "[s] scams not robust science."

Climate researcher Bob Kopp participated on Twitter to lessen the media hype about the new paper, and Kopp also noted that the paper did not provide any new evidence provides, when a "turning point" could be reached or what it will cause, although he agrees that there is such a thing.
That is, it is important to remember that it is a commentary * Science in the piece to argue that the transition to a hothouse is quickly completed (in fact, they – I think exactly – call this a millennial transition) 4 / n

The #HaushausEarth is probably real, but we do not know what it will trigger, and the transition will take centuries. The need for an active, flexible planetary administration is real, immediate and secure. 12/12

In fact, a warming of 7 to 9 degrees Fahrenheit is in line with the most extreme scenario of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, RCP8.5 This is increasingly called "extraordinarily unlikely" by researchers because of the unrealistic assumptions about future energy use.
The authors of the article set the turning point at 2 degrees Celsius – the goal of the Paris Agreement. According to a press release, the authors call for "fundamental societal changes" to create a "stabilized Earth" below 2 degrees Celsius.
That means no fossil fuels, planting more trees, reducing consumption and a whole host of other activities. In addition, the scientists criticized nationalist sentiments in the US and other countries that could undermine the Paris Agreement.
In RCP8.5, Earth passes the 2-degree threshold around 2050. This threshold is pushed back in later scenarios that depend on future emissions, which are very uncertain.
There is another problem: climate models have been overheating and have predicted a warming that actually occurred.
The new paper, for example, states that the warming trend is about 0.17 degrees Celsius per decade. Climatologist Judith Curry wrote in a 2017 report that climate models overestimate observed temperature trends by about a factor of two.
For satellite data, climate models predict about 2.5 times more warming in the lower troposphere than was observed  Follow Michael on Facebook and Twitter
