Global warming evidence is 'unmistakable'


A new report released by the Met Office and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has come to the conclusion that there is "unmistakable signs" that "the world is warming".

The report is based on 10 different indicators of temperature changes. According to the Met Office each indicator "proved consistent with a warming world". According to the report the air temperature over land, the sea-surface and marine air temperature has all increased. Our oceans are also heating and the humidity is getting higher. Tropospheric temperature in the ‘active-weather’ layer of the atmosphere closest to the Earth’s surface has also increased. The Met Office also notes that sea-levels has increased while glaciers, spring snow cover in the northern hemisphere and arctic sea-ice are all in decline.

“The temperature increase of one degree Fahrenheit over the past 50 years may seem small, but it has already altered our planet,” said Deke Arndt, co-editor of the report and chief of the Climate Monitoring Branch of NOAA’s National Climatic Data Center.

“Glaciers and sea ice are melting, heavy rainfall is intensifying and heat waves are more common. And, as the new report tells us, there is now evidence that more than 90 percent of warming over the past 50 years has gone into our oceans.”

You can read a short summary of the report here. The electronic version of the full report can be found on the NOAA website.

Interesting article. I was recently speaking to a scientist in looking after Australia's climate change policy recently about this subject. She said that although people seems to tune off now regarding climate change or seem to put it in the faith basket (that is the "i believe" and "i don't believe" camps), the issue is real. She has spent countless hours on calculation, month after months redoing proofs, which always lead to the same conclusion. Climate change is real. However, unfortunately people don't understand or it is to complex an issue. It is also hard to rationalise somthing you can't touch, feel or smell. So much confusion exists on this subject. See what a small group of people have done in trying to come up with their solution to climate change and environmental neglect at large at seiian.com. That's my two cents...
