Warming occurring now
Global warming exists, and it has existed since we started using CO2 in the industrial Revolution.
Danielle Murray, 2005
(Earth Policy Institute, Ice Melting Everywhere, July 8, 2008, http://www.earth-policy.org/Indicators/Ice/2005.htm) Ice is melting everywhere—and at an accelerating rate. Rising global temperatures are lengthening melting seasons, thawing frozenground, and thinning ice caps and glaciers that in some cases have existed for millennia. These changes are raising sea level faster thanearlier projected by scientists, and threatening both human and wildlife populations. Since the industrial revolution, human activity hasreleased ever-increasing amounts of carbon dioxide and other greenhouses gases into the atmosphere, leading to gradual but unmistakablechanges in climate throughout the world—especially at the higher latitudes. Average surface temperatures in the Arctic Circle have risen by more than half a degree Celsius (0.9 degrees Fahrenheit) per decade since 1981. The extent of Arctic sea ice cover has decreased by 7– 9 percent per decade. And the three smallest extents of summer ice ever seen there have all occurred since 2002. According to the latestforecasts, the Arctic could be ice-free in the summer by the end of this century. (See dataand map for selected ice melt examples from around the globe.)

In 2006, scientists at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) reported that, since 1975, temperatures have been increasing at a rate of about0.36° F per decade.4 Worldwide, 11 of the last 12 years (1995 to 2006) rank among the 12 warmest years on record, with 2006 likely thewarmest year in the United States since record-keeping began in 1895.5 (See Fig. 1, next page.) While temperatures have increased onaverage, patterns of extreme temperatures have also changed. According to the recent IPCC report, “Cold days, cold nights and frost have become less frequent, while hot days, hot nights and heat waves have become more frequent.”3
