‘“Bad News For The Planet,” Says The World Meteorological Organization’

http://thinkprogress.org/climate/2015/11/25/3725792/hottest-5-years-record/?utm_source=newsletter&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=cptop3

The World Meteorological Organization (WMO) reports that 2015 will set (or already has set) a variety of worrisome climate records due to manmade carbon pollution:

  • 2011-2015 “have been the warmest five-year period on record, with many extreme weather events – especially heatwaves – influenced by climate change.”

  • 2015 is set to be the hottest year on record by far, with the highest ocean surface temperatures ever monitored.

  • It’s “probable” that total global warming since the industrial revolution will cross the 1°C (1.8°F).

  • The 3-month average of Northern Hemisphere CO2 levels “crossed the 400 parts per million barrier for the first time.”
