Video: 2013 was seventh-warmest year on record, NASA Says

An analysis of global temperatures by NASA scientists has shown that 2013 was the seventh-warmest year since 1880 (tied with 2006 and 2009). Scientists at NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) reported that last year marked a continuation of the the long-term trend of rising air temperatures. This animation shows monthly temperature anomalies from 1880 through 2013. Nine of the 10 warmest years on record have occurred since 2000. Credit: Youtube/NASA Earth Observatory
