2018 fourth hottest year on record

"The 20 warmest years on record have been in the past 22 years". NASA and NOAA analyzed the same data independently and came to the same conclusion.

Global temperatures averaged 1.49 degrees Fahrenheit above the 1951-1980 average according to NASA data, while NOAA showed 1.42F above the 1901-2000 average.

According to NOAA findings, Europe in particular experienced its "warmest year on record", as many countries, including France, Germany and Switzerland, dealt with their hottest 12 months in recent history.

All five of those years were exceptionally warm, with only slight differences that were driven by natural variations in the weather, including the alternating cool and warm cycles from El Nino and La Nina. "It's because of the increases of greenhouse gases".

NASA clarified that it gathers its measurements from "6,300 weather stations, ship- and buoy-based observations of sea surface temperatures, and temperature measurements from Antarctic research stations".

Kyler Murray to participate in NFL Combine
This is an exciting update in the current mystery as to which sport Kyler Murray would be considering for his career. ESPN's Adam Schefter reported Murray has already accepted the invitation.

The average global surface temperature has risen about 1 degree Celsius since 1880s, a clear signal that our planet is warming, according to NASA.

"There was no Greenland and sea level was about 25 meters higher". Climate change has accelerated the rate of ice loss across the continent.

US President Donald Trump has taken little action to address global warming.

Higher temperatures in the Arctic and Antarctic regions is of particular concern for scientists for several reasons.

"2018 is yet again an extremely warm year on top of a long-term global warming trend", Schmidt said in a press release. "You do tend to see some bouncing up and down superimposed upon a long-term trend", Deke Arndt, who leads global monitoring at NOAA's National Centers for Environmental Information, said during the news conference.

During the meeting, the girl expressed her desire to become a police officer when she grows up. Chief Ray Garivey had learned of Abigail's interest in law enforcement and swore her in.

Due to the dynamic character of global weather patterns, not every place of the Earth experiences the same levels of warming.

The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) is reporting that 2018 was the fourth warmest year on record since 1880. The following year, 2017, is ranked as the second warmest. Meanwhile, only 2.4 percent of the surface was significantly colder than that baseline period.

"Many of the extreme weather events are consistent with what we expect from a changing climate", he said.

The November report warned that climate change will intensify over the century without swift emissions cuts.

Scientists believe that without a rapid reduction in greenhouse gas emissions, the warming trend will continue and the effects of climate change more severe. Scientists warn that if we're to avoid the worst affects of climate change, we cannot allow the temperature to rise more than 2 degrees compared to pre-industrial levels.

Suspected DUI driver dances throughout sobriety test in Florida
The deputy asked the man, 33-year-old Christopher Ryan Larson, to begin performing tasks related to a sobriety test. When asked if he knew where he was, Larson said he was in Clearwater - which is about 16 miles south of Holiday.
