Scientists Find That Global Warming Did Not Slow
Some have asserted that global warming had slowed or even halted since the turn of the century. However, the most recent analysis by climate scientists, which includes data from 203 and 2014, reveal that the global warming is proceeding as fast or even fast than before. In fact, 2014 was the hottest year on record.
A summary is available at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Web site. The full analysis is published in Science magazine; the entire article is available on the Science Magazine Web site.
Audubon has identified global warming as the greatest threat to birds through the end of the century and beyond.
