"According to research cited by the IPCC in 2007, the Earth's average surface temperature has gone up about 0.6 C since the start of the 20th century. That may not sound like much, and many climatologists will agree that it isn't. But some say it's a sign of things to come." from CBC
This article is very interesting. Points on both sides but the above statement was very interesting to me.
You know how when they do polls, they say "accurate to within 3 - 4 points"? So how accurate is the 1/2 degree?
If you figure it out, that means that the earth's surface has been warming at the astounding rate of almost 0.0056074 degrees EVERY YEAR!! ARE YOU ALARMED NOW? WHAT KIND OF THERMOMETERS MEASURE WEATHER THAT ACCURATELY?
I THINK I WILL GO HOME AND HAVE A PANIC ATTACK!!!
