State of the Climate 2012

Australia's Bureau of Meteorology and CSIRO this week released their report State of the Climate 2012. It reconfirms what we know already: there's more greenhouse gas than before, it's hotter than before and sea levels are rising.

And it also contained this graph of world temperatures - updated to include 2011. The blue indicates La Nina years, which are generally colder than average. 2011 seems to be the 11th hottest year on record (where all 11 have occured in the last 14 years). Out of the La Nina years, it's the hottest one so far.
