Since the late 1800's, the global average temperature has increased about 0.7 to 1.4 degrees F (0.4 to 0.8 degrees C). Many experts estimate that the average temperature will rise an additional 2.5 to 10.4 degrees F (1.4 to 5.8 degrees C) by 2100. That rate of increase would be much larger than most past rates of increase.
But just two weeks ago the International Energy Agency predicted that the temperature of our atmosphere would increase by 6.3 degrees F by 2035, only 25 years from now.
