It was reported today that a group of German researchers have developed a new climate change model that suggests that, because the Earth is entering a natural cooling phase, which appears to happen roughly every 60-70 years, the temperatures will stay roughly the same as they are at the moment and counter the effects of greenhouse warming. Some scientists have welcomed this research claiming that it enables them to plan for a better future with a degree of accuracy however scientists also claim that by about 2020, the temperatures will once again be rising sharply. The Atlantic Multicedal Oscillation (AMO) or Gulf Stream as most people know it as appears to be the key to the new predictions.
