Benjamin Cardin, D-MD
"The Arctic Ocean environment has experienced notable changes that have tracked ahead of the global rise in temperatures. Starting in the mid-1970s, global average temperatures have risen 0.5 degrees Centigrade, with each of the last three decades being successively warmer at the Earth’s surface than any preceding decade since 1850. According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, NOAA, the 10 hottest years, based on average global surface temperatures, have all occurred since 1998, with 2014 being the hottest year on record. However, many climate scientists are projecting that this year, 2015, will surpass last year as the hottest year on record. Temperature increases at the Poles have been even more significant, and the impacts and consequences are more severe."
