“The Hadley Computer Lab Center in Britain’s Meteorological Office
warned in October that unless global greenhouse gas emissions start reducing 3% a year beginning in 2010, the average global mean temperature of Earth will rise by at least 4 degrees Fahrenheit over the next 90 years - 4 times the rate of global warming in the 20th Century.”
October 24, 2008 Albuquerque, New Mexico - In October, scientists reported that the fall temperatures in the Arctic broke all record highs – averaging 5 degrees Celcius above normal, which is 9 degrees Fahrenheit above normal! All that Arctic warming has caused the highest sea level rise on record. It doesn’t seem like a big number – only .254 centimeters a year – but it still means Arctic waters are rising as more and more ice melts from the warmer and warmer Arctic temperatures.
