NASA has released an updated report with a video that shows the globe is getting hotter over every decade.
The data comes from NASA’s New York-based Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) that specializes in studying global surface temperatures.
The study reports that the average global temperature has risen about 0.8 degrees Celsius since 1880. Years 2005 and 2010 are among the hottest on record.
Although average weather patterns fluctuate year to year, NASA scientists believe the steady rise of global temperatures over the past century is tied to increases in greenhouse gas levels in the atmosphere.
