The article comments on the issues related to the changes in the global temperature. According to the author, 2005 is the warmest recorded temperature ever recorded. Scientist are worried that the melting of the Arctic sea ice would increase temperature even more. The author also stated that there is no conclusive proof that the higher temperature are not just part of the Earth's temperature cycle.
