    Anthropogenic Climate Change - The Scientific View


    As GFO pointed out in another thread: "A comprehensive analysis of peer-reviewed articles on the topic of global warming and climate change has revealed an overwhelming consensus among scientists that recent warming is human-caused." (Source IOP Institute of Physics)

    Global sea level rose about 17 centimeters (6.7 inches) in the last century. The rate in the last decade, however, is nearly double that of the last century. (NASA)

    All three major global surface temperature reconstructions show that Earth has warmed since 1880.5 Most of this warming has occurred since the 1970s, with the 20 warmest years having occurred since 1981 and with all 10 of the warmest years occurring in the past 12 years. (NASA)

    The oceans have absorbed much of this increased heat. (NASA)

    The Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets have decreased in mass.(NASA)

    Both the extent and thickness of Arctic sea ice has declined rapidly over the last several decades (NASA)

    Glaciers are retreating almost everywhere around the world (NASA)

    The number of record high temperature events in the United States has been increasing, while the number of record low temperature events has been decreasing, since 1950. (NASA)

    Since the beginning of the Industrial Revolution, the acidity of surface ocean waters has increased by about 30 percent. (NASA)
