New model calculations by ETH researcher Thomas Frolicher show that global warming may continue after a stoppage of CO 2 emissions.

Climate physicist Thomas Frolicher questions this notion by using model calculations and creates a more pessimistic picture in a study published in the scientific journal Nature Climate Change.
