Briefing Paper prepared by the NSW Parliamentary Library Research Service.The threat of global climate change has produced one of today's most intractable policy issues. This is because the emission of gases that contribute to climate change are currently intricately associated with our everyday lifestyle. Some of the most important conclusions to come out of recent work by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change include: global average surface temperature has increased over the 20th century by about 0.6oC; globally, it is very likely that the 1990s was the warmest decade and 1998 the warmest year in the instrumental record since 1861; snow cover and ice extent have decreased; there has been a widespread retreat of mountain glaciers in non-polar regions during the 20th century; and global average sea level has risen and ocean heat content has increased. However, a few areas of the globe have not warmed in recent decades, mainly over some parts of the Southern Hemisphere oceans and parts of Antarctica (pages 1 - 2)
