Graphic global climate change
here, capturing a lot of the essential facts and portraying them clearly (see here also). The image shows the upper part of it (click to see larger version). New facts are emerging all the time though - and the figures are getting worse. This week came news that carbon dioxide concentrations have jumped up AND news that global temperatures are higher than they have been for at least 4000 yrs (see here). Hopes of staying within a temperature rise of two degrees are fading more and more rapidly due to our inaction, whilst what what are learning all the time about climate change science says we have underestimated the feedbacks, pace, scale and impacts.
