Study: Long-term global warming needs external drivers
Description: Scientists have long known that as Earth warms, it is able to restore its temperature equilibrium through a phenomenon known as the Planck Response. The phenomenon is an overall increase in infrared energy that Earth emits as it warms. The response acts as a safety valve of sorts, allowing more of the accumulating heat to be released through the top of Earth's atmosphere into space. New research, however, shows it's not quite as simple as that. [Source: Global Climate Change - NASA]
