  1. A 2009 study by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration concluded global warming may indeed be irreversible: Any serious cuts we make to global CO2 emissions would take another 1,000 years to bear fruit. Meaning we could do all the right things and still have temperatures rising for a millennium. But if cuts are made, with real change noticeable in 1,000 years, then technically global warming is not, in their estimation, irreversible. It will just take a really, really long time.
