Climate records shattered in 2013

Yahoo News provided a summary of the latest 2013 State of the Climate report, issued yearly by NOAA with reviews by 427 scientists from 57 different countries.  You can find Yahoo’s summary by clicking here.  Some of the notable findings were that Arctic sea ice continues to decrease while Antarctic sea ice is increasing (although total ice mass in Antarctica is decreasing), sea levels are continuing to rise, and permafrost is melting in northern Alaska.  The complete report, published by the Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society, can be found here.
