2015 Was Earth’s Warmest Year on Record

Politico: “The Earth’s temperatures reached the warmest level in more than a century of records, breaking the previous high mark set in 2014, federal scientists said Wednesday.”

“The data is the latest to show the upward trend in the Earth’s temperature, which scientists say is caused by the buildup of greenhouse gases like carbon dioxide and methane in the atmosphere.”

“Overall, 2015 global temperatures rose by 1.62 degrees Fahrenheit over the 20th century average, reaching the highest level in 136 of record-keeping, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and NASA said. Last year’s temperatures surpassed the 2014 record by a wide 0.29-degree margin.”
