Distressing Climate Change Data from NASA

"NASA/NOAA Distressing Climate Change Data: Clear Trend since 2001" - Fergal Mee

Global Warming is here! The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) report that 2016 broke all temperature records, "With most of the warming occurred in the past 35 years, with 16 of the 17 warmest years on record occurring since 2001. Not only was 2016 the warmest year on record, but eight of the 12 months that make up the year – from January through September, with the exception of June – were the warmest on record for those respective months. October, November, and December of 2016 were the second warmest of those months on record – in all three cases, behind records set in 2015" See link below:

Any delay in us taking urgent action is likely to lead to irreversible damage. The Copenhagen Diagnosis (a report written by twenty-six climate scientists from eight countries) suggests "If global warming is to be limited to a maximum of 2°C above pre-industrial values, global emissions need to peak between 2015 and 2020 and then decline rapidly. To stabilize climate, a decarbonized global society – with near-zero emissions of CO2 and other long-lived greenhouse gases – need to be reached well within this century. GHG emissions will have to shrink by between 80% to 90% below the per-capita emissions in developed nations in 2000"

We need to take action urgently to avoid sleepwalking into oblivion! The price of liberty is eternal vigilance. If we as people are indolent, or carelessness, or lack public spirit, we will not fight against global warming today and soon it may be to late.
