What Global Warming?!

Thursday, November 15, 2007

A report found that average global warming was 0.8C over the past century, with recent warming growing at 0.2C per decade. If continued, such a trend would lead to a temperature rise of about 3C by the end of this century relative to pre-industrial temperatures.

Latest observations show decreases in Arctic sea ice are occurring faster than any climate model projections. Models had suggested that in a business-as-usual scenario, an ice-free Arctic Ocean might occur from 2050 to 2100 or beyond.

Warming in the Antarctic - one of the most rapidly warming regions of the planet - is about 0.5C per decade, compared to the global rate of 0.2C.
