Temperature

  • Each of the last three decades has been successively warmer at the Earth’s surface than any preceding decade since 1850. The globally averaged temperature data show a warming of 0.85 [0.65 to 1.06] °C over the period 1880 to 2012.

  • IPCC Assessment Report 5 states that Global mean temperatures will continue to rise over the 21st century if greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions continue unabated and temperature change will not be regionally uniform.

  • It is virtually certain that, in most places, there will be more temperature extremes as global mean temperatures increase (IPCC 2014).
