After that, he introduced a model that simulates the climate devised by research teams including himself in the mid-1960s, and "evaluates how the temperature of the earth's surface and atmosphere changes according to the concentration of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. It was a very useful model for me. "

He warned that as global warming progresses, droughts will occur frequently in many areas, especially in arid areas, while floods are more likely to occur in tropical regions.
