NASA Says 2010 Tied For Warmest Year On Record

An anonymous reader writes “It may not seem like it, but 2010 has tied 2005 as the warmest year since people have been keeping records, according to data from NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies in New York. The two years differed by less than 0.018 degrees Fahrenheit. That difference is so small that it puts them in a statistical tie. In the new analysis, the next warmest years are 1998, 2002, 2003, 2006 and 2007, which are statistically tied for third warmest year. The GISS records begin in 1880.” Adds jamie: “This was the 34th consecutive year with global temperatures above the 20th century average — 0.62 +/- 0.07 C above, to be precise. It was the wettest year on record too, according to the Global Historical Climatology Network.”
