Is Migration-Induced Warming Greater than the Physical Greenhouse Effect? 929041

ABSTRACT

Studies of the greenhouse effect have generally concentrated on its size and effect on terrestrial ecosystems, treating human population distribution as a constant. However, these distributions can change, producing temperature effects on humans comparable to those expected for global climate. In the united States from 1960 to 2010, internal migrations have and will produce a temperature increase on humans of about 1.1 C, a rate of temperature increase about four times that of Northern Hemisphere warming in the last century.
