A report from the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association has concluded that the world is warming. From the ABC::
"Each of the last three decades has been substantially warmer than the decade before it," he said.
"On a decade scale, that is very clear. The 1980s was the warmest decade on record as of December 31, 1989, but every single year in the 90s was warmer than that decade's average temperature."
Peter Thorne, of the Cooperative Institute for Climate and Satellites, says the scientists were not swayed by the debate over climate data and whether it had previously been manipulated.
"What this data is doing is screaming that the world is warming, and that cannot be driven by any single individual or even a small set of groups, because the evidence is there to see - there are lots of groups doing this stuff," Mr Thorne said.
The scientists say the warming is due to greenhouse gases and while there were signs of human fingerprints, the report was not designed to attribute blame.
I think all Australians have in recent years have felt the effects of extreme weather, which I believe is connected with green house gasses. Future generations will depend on what action we take now...
So far both Liberal and Labor political parties in the 2010 election, have been a joke with their sence of urgency with the situation at hand.
