Climate scientists have finally solved the mystery as to why the equatorial Pacific trade winds, which were expected to get weaker due to increasing greenhouse gas levels, have actually gotten stronger in recent years.
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.
Another study is backing up climate change claims, saying Earth is at the warmest it has been in at least 1,400 years. The study further shows that the planet has warmed more between 1971 and 2000 than during any other three-decade interval during the model period.
Scientists at NASA report that 2012 was the ninth warmest year on record since 1880. This continues a long-term global trend of rising temperatures.
September 2012 matched the record for September 2005 for global temperatures. This is the third time since 2000 that the world record for September was tied or beaten.
NASA's Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) said 2011 was the ninth warmest year on record since 1880.
