FACT According to the NASA, the sea level has risen by 66.91mm from (1993 to August 2015).

The IPCC also states that, if the current trend of increasing atmospheric carbon dioxide continues, it could cause the global temperature to rise by 4-8°F by 2100. According to NASA, the earth has warmed since 1880 (most of warming has occurred since 1970). The 10 warmest years in the 134-year record all have occurred since 2000, with the exception of 1998. 0.75 0.50 0.25 0.00 -0.25 -0.50 1890 1910 1930 1950 1970 1990 2010 Year Source: NASA/GISS MELTING OF ICE ΜΥΤΗ Latest satellite image show Antarctica is gaining ice, not losing it. Hence, the global warming is a hoax. FACT According to National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC), arctic sea ice extent averaged for November 2015 was the sixth lowest. Through 2015, the linear rate of decline for November extent is 4.7% per decade. 12.5 Average Monthly Arctic Sea Ice Extent November 1978 - 2015 12.0 11.5 11.0 10.5 10.0 9.5 1978 1983 1988 1993 1998 2003 2008 2013 Year Source: NSIDC According to NASA study, the global sea ice is decreasing despite gain in Antarctica. The earth has been shedding sea ice at an average annual rate of 13,500 square miles (35,000 square kilometers) since 1979. RECENT AGREEMENTS The 2015 United Nations Climate Change Conference, COP 21 was held in Paris, France, from 30 Nov. to 12 Dec. 2015. Countries agreed to reduce CO, emissions as part of the method for reducing greenhouse gases. 2C Threshold If countries do not act 4.5 Following current policies 3.6 Based on Paris I 2.7 agreement Average Warming (C) Projected by 2100 Source: CAT REFERENCES : Extent (Million Square Kilometer) Temperature Anomaly (C) Sea Level Change (mm) Sea Level Rise (m)
