State of the Climate 2012
> Each decade has been warmer than the previous decade since the 1950s. Global-average surface temperatures were the warmest on record in 2010 (slightly higher than 2005 and 1998). 2011 was the world’s 11th warmest year and the warmest year on record during a La Niña event. The world’s 13 warmest years on record have all occurred in the past 15 years.
> On land around Australia the observed warming trends are consistent with the global-scale warming – despite 2010 and 2011 being the coolest years recorded in Australia since 2001.
> In the oceans around Australia, sea-surface temperatures have increased faster than the global average, and sea-level rise since 1993 is greater than, or equal to, the global average.
As Australia lurches from drought to floods, temperatures continue to rise
> Greenhouse gases have increased at more than 3% a year for the past decade to reach their highest level in 800,000 years, ...
> “Much of Australia may have lurched from drought to floods since the previous State of the Climate, but this has occurred against a backdrop of steadily increasing air and ocean temperatures and rising sea levels,“ Dr Clark said. "What’s more, the rate of change is increasing.
> “The fundamental physical and chemical processes leading to climate change are well understood, and CSIRO and the Bureau of Meteorology observations demonstrate that change is occurring now."
> “Given the substantial misinformation about climate change … this report is very helpful in providing clear messages that concerns about climate change due to increasing greenhouse gases are still very well based in sound science.”
