Global Warming: NASA Research Finds 2010 Tied for Warmest Year on Record

Washington – According to researchers at NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS), global surface temperatures for years 2010 and 2005 differed by less than 0.018 degrees Fahrenheit. The difference is smaller than the uncertainty in comparing the temperatures of recent years, putting them into a statistical tie. In the new analysis, the next warmest years are 1998, 2002, 2003, 2006, 2007 and 2009, which are statistically tied for third warmest year. The GISS records began in 1880.

The analysis found 2010 approximately 1.34 F warmer than the average global surface temperature from 1951 to 1980. . . . → Read More: Global Warming: NASA Research Finds 2010 Tied for Warmest Year on Record

Global Warming: 2010 Tied for Warmest Year on Record

According to NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) scientists, 2010 tied with 2005 as the warmest year of the global surface temperature record, beginning in 1880. This was the 34th consecutive year with global temperatures above the 20th century average. For the contiguous United States alone, the 2010 average annual temperature was above normal, resulting in the 23rd warmest year on record.

This preliminary analysis is prepared by scientists at NOAA’s National Climatic Data Center in Asheville, N.C., and is part of the suite of climate services NOAA provides government, business and community leaders so they can make informed decisions.
