MOSCOW, December 25. /TASS/. The speed of climate warming in Russia is outpacing the rate of change being recorded across the planet, the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environmental Protection said on Friday in its annual report.

"Growth of average temperatures in Russia in 1976-2014 was 0.42 degrees Celsius in 10 years, which is 2.5 times more than growth of global temperatures on Earth for the same period — 0.17 degrees Celsius in 10 years," the ministry said, adding that average annual, autumn and spring temperatures continued to rise across all Russian regions.

The report charts temperature fluctuations affecting the climate, leading to ice melting, sea levels rising, floods, droughts and other phenomena.
