[ Watch The Video: Six Decades Of A Warming Earth ] Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online NASA's Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) in New York found that 2013 tied 2009 and 2006 for the seventh warmest year since 1880. GISS analyzes global surface temperatures and released an updated report on Tuesday on the 2013 temperatures from around the world. According to the report, the average temperature last year was 58.3 degree Fahrenheit, which is about 1.1 degrees...

WASHINGTON, Jan. 21 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- A new analysis of global surface temperatures by NASA scientists finds the past year was tied for the second warmest since 1880. In the Southern Hemisphere, 2009 was the warmest year on record. (Logo: http://www.newscom.com/cgi-bin/prnh/20081007/38461LOGO ) Although 2008 was the coolest year of the decade because of a strong La Nina that cooled the tropical Pacific Ocean, 2009 saw a return to a near-record global temperatures as the La...

NASA -- Scientists from NASA and Columbia University, New York, have used computer modeling to successfully reproduce an abrupt climate change that took place 8,200 years ago. At that time, the beginning of the current warm period, climate changes were caused by a massive flood of freshwater into the North Atlantic Ocean. This work is the first to consistently recreate the event by computer modeling, and the first time that the model results have been confirmed by comparison to the climate...
