The year 2014 now ranks as the warmest on record! Scientists continued to acknowledge the long-term trend of a warming climate when NASA’s Goddard Institute released its findings today, January 16. Winter is becoming more mild and summers are becoming unbearably hot. Forget your mittens, buy more sunblock!

New data shows that 2014 was the hottest year since 1880, when temperature records were first kept. Nine of the 10 warmest years on record since 1880 have all been since the year 2000. Since 1880, the global average temperature has increased about 1.4 degrees Fahrenheit.

Global warming is driven by the growing concentrations of carbon dioxide caused by the increasing amounts of human emissions.
