Global Warming

The first speculation that a greenhouse effect might occur was by the Swedish chemist Svante Arrhenius in 1897, although it did not become a topic of popular debate until some 90 years later.

The twelve European Community nations agreed in 1989 to ban the production of all chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) by the end of the century.

The Earth's average near-surface atmospheric temperature rose about 0.6 degree Celsius (1.1 degree Fahrenheit) in the 20th century.

The Indian Ocean is the warmest ocean in the world. Long-term ocean temperature records show a rapid, continuous warming in the Indian Ocean, about three times faster than the warming observed in the Pacific.

July 2016 was the hottest month worldwide ever since records begun. The average global temperatures was 0.84C hotter than the 1951 to 1980 average for July, and 0.11C hotter than the previous record set in July 2015.
