Global warming: Air Temperature update 2013

Global warming: Air Temperature update 2013

2013 was the 4th warmest year recorded of land Air Temperature since measurements began in 1880. See the development 1960-2013 in the diagram (the average temperature rise in 1880-1937 is set at 0°C). The last ten years of average temperature rise is the figure used in ClimatePositions.

The national Climate Contributions increase along with the land Air Temperature update in ClimatePositions. Here are two examples: Namibia’s Climate Contribution (climate debt) increased from $15 per capita to $16 and Kuwait’s increased from $10,248 per capita to $10,335. See a graphic presentation of the calculation ‘here‘.
