A new study found international efforts to decrease climate change may not be enough to save our planet.

According to the journal "Nature Climate Change," the amount of global warming from carbon pollution already in the air may be enough to ruin any international goals to limit climate change.

Current projections show global temperatures are on track to be four degrees warmer since pre-industrial times.

Scientists say by taking swift action the damage could be delayed for centuries.

That would mean a global cutback on greenhouse gas emissions like the burning of coal, oil and natural gas.
