The rate in the last decade, however, is nearly double that of the last century. The oceans have absorbed much of this increased heat, with the top 700 meters (about 2,300 feet) of ocean showing warming of 0.302 degrees Fahrenheit since 1969. FBarbara We don’t 3 comments B Amanda I’m really thirsty. 3 comments A Chris 3 comments We know because the ice caps are getting smaller and the sea levels are rising and also it’s getting windy. C Paul 3 comments Because Al Gore says so, and my dad agrees. My mum doesn’t agree but then she never does. P Adam 3 comments Climate has always changed, and it always will. The assumption that the Earth once had a “stable” climate is simply wrong. A John The number of record high temperature events in the United States has been increasing, while the number of record low te ea te ee ts has J Mark 3 comments The current warming trend is of particular signi cance because most of it is very likely human-induced and proceeding at a rate that is unprecedented in the past 1,300 years.
