Climate Change Timing-3 [Duplicate]

This undated handout photo provided by Marinelifephotography.com shows a reef slope densely covered by soft corals in Southeast Sulawesi, Indonesia. A new study on the timing of climate change calculates the probable dates for when cities and ecosystems across the world would regularly experience never-before-seen hotter environments based on about 150 years of record-keeping. These are the dates when every year is hotter than old hottest annual record. This means the old blistering heat of people's memories will eventually seem unusually cool in comparison to the warming years to come. Coral reef species are the first to be stuck in a new climate that they haven't experienced before and are most vulnerable to climate change, Mora said. Coral reefs will be in that new regime around 2030. (AP Photo/Keoki Stender, Marinelifephotography.com)
