Last week NASA and NOAA announced that 2014 topped the list of hottest years ever recorded. Yikes! What's worse, the ten warmest years ever recorded have all occurred since 1998. Yikes again! I fear this news story might turn into a blip that gets tons of attention and is then forgotten after a few days. Show More Summary
A new report by NASA and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) indisputably confirms what many scientists had predicted: 2014 is officially the hottest year on record. And this past year is not an anomaly -- the previous 10 hottest years on the books have all occurred since 1998. Show More Summary
Many satellites that monitor the Earth orbit relatively close to the planet, while some satellites that monitor the sun orbit our star. DSCOVR will keep an eye on both, with a focus on the sun. To cover both the Earth and sun, it will have an unusual orbit in a place called L1.
Don't be fooled by a winter blizzard this week! The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) rated 2014 as the hottest year in the global temperature record and NASA's Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) promptly chimed in with the same finding. Show More Summary
According to NOAA, today and tomorrow the 14th major impact snowstorm of the 2010s will hit the NE USA. That makes the 2010s – in terms of such major impact snowstorm events – the snowiest decade on record. The previous record-holding decades were the 1960s and 2000s. Each of those decades had 10 such.

There's no need to panic about the bread and milk—nothing that looks this beautiful from space could ever really harm us. NOAA released this satellite photograph taken today as its Image of the Day:A major winter storm in the process of developing is bringing snow to the Ohio Valley and mid-Atlantic. Show More Summary
A video by Kevin Cowtan about Christopher Booker‘s accusations of data tampering. A quick response to an article by Christopher Booker in the Telegraph. The video features a prototype tool for investigating the global temperature record. This tool will be made available with the upcoming MOOC, Making Sense of Climate Science Denial (http://gci.uq.edu.au/mooc), where we…
Last year was not only the hottest year on record, but the National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration has just released a terrifying chart showing a sharp increase in the temperature of the world’s oceans. The graph outlines ocean temperatures since 1960,
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) put an amazing photo set not long ago showing us the smallest marine creatures living in our planet’s seas and oceans. More »
NOAA, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, just announced 2014 the warmest year in recorded history, and 14 of the last 15 years as the warmest in recorded history. Yet Paul Krugman in his latest New York Times op-edShow More Summary
Guest Post by Roman Mureika It was bound to happen eventually. We could see it coming – a feeding frenzy from “really, it is still getting warmer” to “we told you so: this is proof positive that the science is settled and we will all boil or fry!” The latest numbers are in and they…
NOAA's graph can't even handle the ocean's rising temperature... and neither can we.
Last Friday, NASA GISS and NOAA NCDC had a press conference and jointly announced the end-of-year analysis for the 2014 global surface temperature anomaly which, in both analyses, came out top. As you may have noticed, this got much more press attention than their joint announcement in 2013 (which wasn’t a record year). In press […]
The big climate news last week was NOAA and NASA announcing that 2014 was the hottest year on record, breaking the highs of 2005 and 2010. But a bigger story got buried. The post ‘Hottest Year’ Story Obscures Bigger News: Ocean Warming Now Off The Charts appeared first on ThinkProgress.
RELATED: From the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA): Decades ago, the majority of the Arctic's winter ice pack was made up of thick, perennial ice. Today, very old ice is extremely rare. This animation tracks the relative amount of ice of different ages from 1987 through early November 2014. Show More Summary

The year 2014 ranks as Earth’s warmest since 1880, according to two separate analyses by NASA and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) scientists. The 10 warmest years in the instrumental record, with the exception of 1998, have now occurred since 2000. Show More Summary
