Fourth Hottest Year On Record, Says NASA

New data confirms last year was one of the hottest ever recorded, and British meteorologists are predicting the next five years will be even hotter than 2018.

If you spent much time outside last summer and thought that it wasn't that hot in past years, you were right.

2016, boosted by a strong El Nino that normally tips the mercury northwards, remains the hottest year on record.

Global temperatures now stand 1 degree Celsius, or 1.8 degrees Fahrenheit, above the average temperature of the late 19th century.

SWOT analysis and Porter's Five Forces Analysis are the two consistently and promisingly used tools for generating this report . The Business Intelligence Market has also been segmented on the basis of application , product type , end user, and region .

Record-breaking: The NASA study found that Earth's global surface temperature past year was 0.83 °C warmer than the 1951-1980 mean.

"The long-term temperature trend is far more important than the ranking of individual years, and that trend is an upward one", said WMO Secretary-General Petteri Taalas.

NASA announced today that 2018 was officially the 4th warmest year since the 1880s, with the fastest increase in warming found in the Arctic.

"The 20 warmest years on record have been in the past 22 years".

Lynx’s Maya Moore Taking The Year Off
She has two EuroLeague titles and and a championship in Liga Femenina, the first tier level women's pro league in Spain. She was expected to sign a multiyear contract with the Lynx this offseason, but she obviously has decided not to do so.

Similar reports on climate trends released by the US space agency NASA and the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) confirmed that past year was the fourth warmest in modern times.

Increasing temperatures can also contribute to longer fire seasons and some extreme weather events, according to Schmidt.

A United Nations report past year said the world is likely to breach 1.5 degrees Celsius sometime between 2030 and 2052 on current trends, triggering ever more heat waves, powerful storms, droughts, mudslides, extinctions and rising sea levels.

The warming is driven largely by the continued emission of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases into the atmosphere by human activity, such as manufacturing, coal-fired power plant emissions, and deforestation. That puts us more than two-thirds of the way to the warming limit of 1.5 degrees Celsius that was set in the Paris climate agreement. Greenland ice sheets continue to suffer mass loss, which together with similar ice sheet loss in Antarctica, contributed to sea level rise.

Saudi crown prince told aide he would use 'a bullet' on Khashoggi
The prosecutor said earlier this month his office was seeking the death penalty for five of the 11 indicted suspects. Callamard visited Turkey with a team of three experts to investigate the reasons behind the journalist's murder.

Nasa's data was compiled by 6,300 weather stations around the world and was compared against information stretching back to 1880.
