2.  Sea temperature


10 Things Deniers failed to tell you about in 2012:

2.  PwC Study: We’re Headed To 11°F Warming And Even 7°F Requires ‘Nearly Quadrupling The Current Rate Of Decarbonisation’ • 

3.  World Meteorological Society: Warming Is ‘Unequivocal’, We’re The ‘Dominant Cause’, We Need ‘Rapid Reduction’ Of CO2 • 

4.  Shocking World Bank Climate Report: ‘A 4°C [7°F] World Can, And Must, Be Avoided’ To Avert ‘Devastating’ Impacts • 

5.  Munich Re: “The only plausible explanation for the rise in weather-related catastrophes is climate change” • 

6.  Research: The Earth Is Warming And Human Activity Is The Primary Cause; The Climate Science Paradigm Grows Stronger • 

7.  Exxon: Carbon Tax Would ‘Play A Significant Role In Addressing Rising Emissions’ • 

8.  Shell: Shell, Unilever Lead 100 Companies Calling for CO2 Price • 

9.  Coal industry/World’s Largest Mining Firm: ‘In A Carbon Constrained World, Coal Is Going To Decline. And Frankly It Should.’ • 

10.  Investors and global companies: Nearly 200 Leading Global Companies And Investors Call For ‘Clear, Stable, Ambitous’ Carbon Price •

Sad thing:  those Deniers deny the science, they deny current events, they even deny reality itself.  It's almost as if they inhabit a different world...

And they sure do seem to hold our planet's life supporting biosphere in contempt...
And they tragically seem to have little interesting in learning from the full spectrum of evidence.
