This report examines the effects of climate change in the areas of Arctic sea ice coverage, Greenland and Antarctic ice melt, sea level rise and ocean acidification, global average atmospheric temperature and ocean temperature, solar activity, and climate change impacts. Climate change has clearly been accelerating quickly since the IPCC publication of 2007.
