Scientists react to warmest year: 2014 underscores ‘undeniable fact’ of human caused climate change (Washington Post)

“Global mean temperature is a fairly abstract concept to most of us: we relate to climate through direct experience, so if we remember a cold spell last year that may seem more pertinent or convincing than the global mean temperature. From a physics perspective the global mean temperature represents lots of interesting processes – rising greenhouse gases among them – and setting a record like this means those processes lined up this year. Rising greenhouse gases make each year roughly .04 degrees F warmer than the last, which really adds up over time. Clearly the hiatus is over!” Philip Mote, director, Oregon Climate Change Research Institute, Oregon State University.
