The Maunder Minimum does coincide with the lowest temperature readings, but it is a loose fit at best, and may be coincidental. In the IPCC reported that concentrations of carbon dioxide, methane, and nitrous oxides in the atmosphere surpassed those found in ice cores dating backyears.

In the IPCC reported that the interval between and saw an increase in global average surface temperature of approximately 0.

Global warming is arguably the most critical and controversial issue facing the world in the twenty-first century.

Global Warming

Global Warming: A Very Short Introduction provides a concise and accessible explanation of the key topics in the debate: how and why changes are occurring, setting these changes in the context of past global climate change, looking at the predicted impact of climate change.

Global warming is a long-term rise in the average temperature of the Earth's climate system, an aspect of climate change shown by temperature measurements and by multiple effects of the warming.

The term commonly refers to the mainly human-caused observed warming since pre-industrial times and its projected continuation, though there were also much earlier periods of global warming.
