Vital statistics

Posted in: Comment, News and Updates

I was scribbling about global warming and went to the NASA website.  As well as some fine pictures – they do have some of the world's best camera angles – the screen shows some key climate change / global warming stats.  They are hard not to keep looking at:

carbon dioxide – 404.48 ppm

global temperature – up 1.4 degrees (F) since 1880

Arctic sea ice minimum – reducing at a rate of 13.4% / decade

land ice – reducing by 281 giga tonnes / year

sea level – rising by 3.5 mm / year

You could get quite gloomy, and that's before you let your mouse hover over these data for a more in-depth view ...
