The Most Significant Results Of This Investigation Are: (A) A Significant Increase Of The Mean Annual Temperature, Ranging From 0.99 To 3.44°C Per 100 Years Is Forecasted, And (B) The Mean Annual Temperature Regression Lines (For All The Analyzed Stations) Exhibit That The Global Warming Trend Has Increased In The Past 30 Years.
