Not surprisingly, greenhouse gas and sea levels rose in 2013, and warm temperature trends continued, according to the State of the Climate report released by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. 
 
“These findings reinforce what scientists for decades have observed: that our planet is becoming a warmer place,” NOAA administrator Dr. Kathryn Sullivan said in the news release. “This report provides the foundational information we need to develop tools and services for communities, business, and nations to prepare for, and build resilience to, the impacts of climate change.”
