Study: Temperatures go off the charts around 2047

Climate change will begin within a generation, according to a study published by researchers at the University of Hawaii.

The group determined that the world's climate will change sometime in the year 2047.  The change is expected to happen even sooner in the tropics.

The researchers looked at temperature, but also other consequences of global warming. For example, the warming temperatures could also kill coral.

The climate change could also result in drought-prone places becoming even drier. It also could make storms more intense.

While the study says global climate change will happen in 2047, it could be delayed until 2069 if greenhouse gases can be controlled.
