2013 Joins the Warmest Years on Record
Two government agencies reported on Tuesday that 2013 ranked among the warmest years in the global temperature record. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration had 2013 as the fourth warmest year since 1880, tied with 2003. NASA, which measures temperatures with different methods, ranked 2013 seventh, along with 2006 and 2009. According to both agencies, 14 of the warmest years on record have taken place since 1998. In fact, 2013 was the hottest year in over 104 years for Australia, known as being a global hot spot.
