More intensely hot days on the way if climate change ignored

THE Australian Academy of Science warns of more intensely hot days and less cold days if climate change is not addressed.

In its latest update, the academy predicts if greenhouse gas emissions continue to skyrocket, by 2100 the global average air temperature over the Earth's surface will reach four degrees above mid 19th century temperatures.

The academy is calling for emissions reductions, capturing carbon dioxide, adaptation and "geo-engineering". Scientists predict if emissions reduce sufficiently and rapidly there is a chance that global average warming will not exceed two degrees by 2100.
