Temperature Increases from 2001 to 2005
This world map shows increases in annual temperatures in 2001-2005 relative to temperatures in 1951-1980. “Warming is … generally greater over land than over oceans…These recent increases in temperature are confirmed by changes in other features: loss of sea ice, shift of tundra to shrub vegetation, and migration of marine and terrestrial ecosystems to higher latitudes.””.
