State of the Climate Report Released Print E-mail

On July 28, 2010, NOAA released the 2009 State of the Climate report.  This report draws on data for 10 key climate indicators that all point to the same finding: the scientific evidence that our world is warming is unmistakable. More than 300 scientists from 160 research groups in 48 countries contributed to the report, which confirms that the past decade was the warmest on record and that the Earth has been growing warmer over the last 50 years.  For a 10 page summary of the report, click here or see a full supplemental package at http://www.ncdc.noaa.gov/bams-state-of-the-climate/2009.php.
