2007 data confirms global warming trend

2007 data confirms global warming trendWhile the USA, Canada and Japan are doing their best to wreck the climate conference in Bali scientists from the UK's Hadley Centre and University of East Anglia has concluded that this year (2007) has been one of the warmest since 1850.

"However, since the end of April, the La Nina event has taken some of the heat out of what could have been an even warmer year”, Phil Jones, director of the Climatic Research Unit at the University of East Anglia (UEA), said. So even that La Nina has been around this year with it’s cooling effects the temperatures have kept rising.

The 11 warmest years have all occurred within the last 13 years. The Hadley Centre ranks this year as the seventh warmest.

Vicky Pope, head of climate prediction at the Hadley Centre, says that the data "confirmed the need for swift action to combat further rises in global temperatures because of human behaviour."
