Clouds will amplify global warming by reflecting less heat, study warns

Updated: few hours ago

London, Jul 20 (PTI) Global temperatures are likely to increase by more than 3 degrees Celsius -- double the UN climate targets -- partly due to clouds reflecting less solar radiation and enhancing the greenhouse effect, a study has warned.

The research, published on Tuesday in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, is the strongest evidence so far that clouds will amplify global heating over the long term, further exacerbating climate change.
