2016 was the hottest for all history of supervision
National oceanic and atmospheric administration (eng. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, NOAA) and National aeronautic and space research (eng. National Aeronautics and Space Administration, NASA) confirmed that 2016 was the hottest for all history of supervision.
Recall that such measurements started in 1880. This year we have already reported the hottest July and the hottest half of the year.
The average temperature of the earth’s surface in 2016 was 0.99°C higher than in the mid-20th century. Experts state the increase in emissions of carbon dioxide and other anthropogenic emissions, which lead to an increase in temperature.
NASA has published a video, which demonstrates the change in surface temperature since 1880.
Experts note that the greatest warming occurs closer to the poles and leads to a rapid melting of the ice.
