Past and future trends in global mean temperature show we are entering a phase of unprecedented climate change. The new Cenozoic climate curve is placed alongside ice core records, which show the changing climate over the last 25,000 years and instrumental climate data from 1850 to the present day. The future projections of global temperature (RCP scenarios) are shown for illustration. Under a business as usual emissions scenario temperatures may be pushed towards the hothouse conditions last seen 55 million years ago. Image credit Thomas Westerhold.
