This research article was released in February 2016. The authors are noted scientists from major universities in the US, France, Germany, and China, plus NASA and the Jet Propulsion Laboratory.
The authors used numerical climate simulations, paleoclimate data, and modern observations to study the effect of growing ice melt from Antarctica and Greenlands. Their conclusion is that an increase of more than 2 °C in global warming could be dangerous for humanity. It could significantly increase the number and intensity of powerful storms.
