There’s no doubt things are warming up on planet earth.

Here are the top 10 hottest years on record:

1998 – 32.94 degrees Fahrenheit (0.52 degrees Celsius)
2005 – 32.86 degrees Fahrenheit (0.48 degrees Celsius)
2003 – 32.83 degrees Fahrenheit (0.46 degrees Celsius)
2002 – 32.83 degrees Fahrenheit (0.46 degrees Celsius)
2004 – 32.77 degrees Fahrenheit (0.43 degrees Celsius)
2006 – 32.76 degrees Fahrenheit (0.42 degrees Celsius)
2007 – 32.74 degrees Fahrenheit (0.41 degrees Celsius)
2001 – 32.72 degrees Fahrenheit (0.40 degrees Celsius)
1997 – 32.65 degrees Fahrenheit (0.36 degrees Celsius)
1995 – 32.5 degrees Fahrenheit (0.28 degrees Celsius)
These are global figures and are based on average temperatures.

I think most people would agree that the big question of “is global warming really happening?” has now been answered. And the other big question I think is becoming a little outdated (”are humans really responsible”?).

I think relevant questions would go along the lines of “is global warming a good thing?”. And, “if it’s not a good thing, what can we do to change this?”.
