New measurements by NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies indicate that 2012 was the ninth warmest year since 1880, and that the past decade or so has seen some of the warmest years in the last 132 years.
One way to illustrate changes in global atmospheric temperatures is by looking at how far temperatures stray from “normal”, or a baseline. For the following map, NASA picked a baseline period using temperatures between 1951 and 1980, and compared temperature global temperature readings from 2012.
The average temperature in 2012 was about 14.6 degrees Celsius (58.3 degrees Fahrenheit), which is 0.55°C (1.0°F) warmer than the mid-20th century base period. The average global temperature has increased 0.8°C (1.4°F) since 1880, and most of that change has occurred in the past four decades.
The long-term trend is clearly represented by plotting temperature anomalies on the line graph, this time from 1880 onward. Even with natural variations due to seasons and other events, we see that average atmospheric temperatures are increasing from decade to decade, which agrees with results from climate models and simulations. And as expected, temperatures have increased as greenhouse gas (carbon dioxide, methane, etc) emissions have increased from the U.S. Industrial Revolution in the late 19th Century onwards.
A secretive funding organisation in the United States that guarantees anonymity for its billionaire donors has emerged as a major operator in the climate "counter movement" to undermine the science of global warming, The Independent has learnt.
as we sayd before, evil oil involved in climate change denial.

We never trusted Obama. look who is in his presidential team, we call him a presidential escortservice for banksters, big oil and wallstreet. or to put it plain, bankster whore for big money.

The New York times is owned by the Rockefellers, the company of "Devil" D Rockefeller..in the last 2 years we have seen the The New York Times spreading lies about Assange, Wikileaks, Arab Spring, Occupy and so on..So we are convinced the paper is lying again.
