Global average temparature grew by 0.8 degrees!

“Major studies by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change have carefully examined over 100 years of measurements and concluded that the average global temperature has risen about 0.8 degree Celsius,” Indian Institute of Astrophysics’s former director Siraj Hasan said at a meeting organized in Delhi yesterday. “The years 1983-2012 have likely been the warmest 30 years in the last 1,400 years. The gradual temperature increase is related to the emission of greenhouse gases such as CO2 (carbon dioxide) and most likely human activity,” he explained. TERI Director RK Pachauri, Minority Affairs minister Najma Heptulla too participated in the event.
