    Icon1 2007 predicted to be the warmest year ever recorded.

    http://news.nationalgeographic.com/n...mest-year.html



    An El Niņo weather phenomenon combined with high levels of greenhouse gases are likely to make 2007 the warmest year ever recorded, British climate scientists said today.

    U.S. government scientists agree with the assessment.

    According to the British forecasters, 2007 will probably be 0.97 degree Fahrenheit (0.54 degree Celsius) above the long-term average of 57 degrees Fahrenheit (14 degrees Celsius).

    The current record holder, 1998, was 0.94 degree Fahrenheit (0.52 degree Celsius) above the long-term average. (The average is calculated from the years 1961 to 1990.)

    I'm more interested in hearing about plausible solutions than calculations that are often unreliable due to the ever changing nature of our planet known as Mars

    If they put out any that'd be a problem. Fortunately, this article is saying something specific - that 2007 is expected to be the hottest year on record. If that's white noise, you need to work on your attention span.

    My attention span is fine thankyou very much. When you get blasted with news of each previous year, decade or half a century being hotter than before these things get a little tiresome

    Pretty sure they said the same thing about 2005 and 2006, and possibly some more before that.
