Last year was the second warmest year on record around the globe, making the last decade the warmest in recorded history, according to a new government report released Wednesday.
Scientists from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and National Aeronautics and Space Administration said the higher average temperatures are the result of human activities that release greenhouse gases and that the trends of warming show that the effects of global warming and climate change are continuing beyond year-to-year fluctuations in temperature and weather.
Experts from NASA found that average global surface temperature has consistently increased since the 1880s, which their analysis found has been driven by emissions of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases produced by human activity such as energy production and transportation.
We crossed over into more than 2 degrees Fahrenheit warming territory in 2015 and we are unlikely to go back. This shows that whats happening is persistent, not a fluke due to some weather phenomenon: we know that the long-term trends are being driven by the increasing levels of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, said Gavin Schmidt, director of NASAs Goddard Institute for Space Studies.
In 2019 temperatures around the world were higher -- about 1.8 degrees Fahrenheit or 0.98 degrees Celsius -- than the historical average, according to data from NASA and NOAA. It's the 43rd year in a row that temperatures were above average, the agencies said.

Good. I hate the cold.
So the only spot we can accurately measure and verify, the US, had no anomoly !
Note: ON RECORD. When it was hotter and not recorded it didn’t count. Sort of like when it was a LOT colder(ice sheets over NYC) and not recorded, didn’t count.
You gotta wonder if they realize how stone stupid that sounds?
2019 cannot be the warmest year in history. It is simply impossible. It may be the warmest RECORDED year in history, but definitely NOT the warmest in history. We know that in the earliest days of Earth, millennia transpired with temperatures in the hundreds of thousands of degrees. If it matters that in the 200 years of recorded history out of 4 billion years, thats not a reliable record.
So what? Big deal.
Get back to me in a 100 years if there are any negative consequences.
Meanwhile NASA says glaciers are growing larger:
NOAA is absolutely compromised. This is BS moving on.
Always wanted palm trees in my yard in northern Wisconsin. It’ll be a few years and we’ll be hearing about the upcoming ice age.
Dont get too comfortable. This decade could be colder.
I predict it WILL be colder. Hey...I’m as educated as these guys.
Have these findings been peer reviewed by scientists with no vested interest in man made global warming? Or, are they directed by deep state plants?
Are the findings based on satellite collected data? True and complete temperature data worldwide are collected by satellites; many more data points for the entire planet than from limited numbers of ground stations and ocean bouys.
NOAA and GISS may have biased managers, IMO. Are the data, assumptions, and methodology presented in plain English?
Me, too. I’m freezing my rear end off in Iowa. I could use some warmth.
“Scientists say”. Hahahahahahaha!
