The World Meteorological Organization just released its Global Climate Report (pdf), which reports that “The first decade of the 21st century was the warmest decade recorded since modern measurements began around 1850.”

Roberto A. Ferdman at Quartz challenges people to, "Look at this chart and then try to say global warming doesn’t exist."

After looking at this map of global warming deniers in Congress and the amount of donations they've received from the oil and gas industries, I have a feeling they aren't going to be swayed by a chart unless it used as a wrapping paper for stacks of cash.
