Global Warming Facts Everyone’s Ignoring

As the Tump administration makes its transition into the White House, one of the first things this new government enacted was to take down the official website pages on climate change, so naturally we wanted to reiterate the global warming facts everyone’s ignoring (or at least some people.. Important people).

The 9 Global Warming Facts We CAN’T Ignore:

Sea Level Rise:

Global sea level has risen about 6.7 inches in the last century, the rate in the last decade has nearly doubled that of the last century.

Global Temperature Rise:

All three major surface temperature calculations that scientists use show that the Earth has has warmed significantly since 1880. Most of the warming occurred in the last 35 years, with 15 of the 16 warmest years on record occurring since 2001. Even though the 2000s witnessed a solar output decline resulting in an unusually deep solar minimum, in 2007-2009, surface temperatures continued to increase.

Warming Oceans:

The oceans have absorbed much of the Earth’s increased heat, with the top 2,300 feet of ocean showing warming of 0.302 degrees F since 1969.

 

Shrinking Ice Sheets:

Data from NASA shows Greenland lost 36 to 60 cubic miles of ice per year between 2002 and 2006, while Antarctica lost 36 cubic meters of ice between 2002 and 2005.

Declining Atlantic Sea Ice:

The extent and thickness of the Arctic sea ice has declined rapidly over the last several decades.

Glacial Retreat:

Glaciers in the Alps, Himalayas, Andes, Rockies, Alaska and Africa are all experiencing melting and retreating.

Extreme Events:

The number of record high temperature events in the US has been increasing and the opposite goes for record low temperature events, which have been decreasing, since 1950.

Ocean Acidification:

The acidity of surface ocean waters has increased by about 30 percent since the Industrial Revolution. This increase is the result of humans emitting more carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. The amount of CO2 absorbed by the upper layer of the oceans is increasing by about 2 billion tons per year.

Decreased Snow Cover:

Satellite observations show that the amount of  spring snow cover in the Northern Hemisphere has decreased over the past five decades and the snow is melting quicker.
