“This report confirms that the year 2016 was the warmest on record – a remarkable 1.1 °C above the pre-industrial period, which is 0.06 °C above the previous record set in 2015. This increase in global temperature is consistent with other changes occurring in the climate system”
“Globally averaged sea surface temperatures were also the warmest on record, global sea levels continued to rise, and Arctic sea-ice extent was well below average for most of the year”
“With levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere consistently breaking new records, the influence of human activities on the climate system has become more and more evident”

Have you shopped for your EV yet? What’s holding you back? See The Norwegian EV success continues.
“Norway is leading the way for the transition to zero emission electric cars. In 2015, electric vehicles had a
22% market share in Norway. This is due to a substantial package of incentives developed to promote zero emission cars.
While the Norwegian EV market share is stabilizing on 20 % most other countries hold around 1 % market share. This implies that the Norwegian EV market is approximately 5 years ahead most other countries. This makes the Norwegian market an interesting and beneficial case for other countries.”
