2014 global temperature was the highest year on record

US government agency released a report last year, the global average temperature hit a new high, making 2014 the hottest year on record since. Scientists believe that continued increases in greenhouse gas emissions attributable to human activities that caused.

National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and NASA (NASA) released data point to the same temperature conclusion that 2014 is the hottest year ever recorded.

National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration said in a report, in 2014, global land and ocean average surface temperature is the highest temperature since 1880 has since statistics.

The report shows that in 2014 the global average temperature was 14.6 degrees Celsius, higher than the average of 0.69 degrees Celsius in the 20th century, much higher than the previous record year of 2005 the hottest in 2010 and 0.04 degrees Celsius.

Where the highest temperature reached a record including most of Russia, western Alaska, the western United States, South America and parts of inland Australia in parts of eastern and western coast of North Africa and Europe. The only record low temperatures occur in parts of eastern and central United States.

In addition, the global ocean surface temperature also hit a new high, higher than the average of 0.57 degrees Celsius in the 20th century, than in 1998 and 2003 the warmest year of the two degrees Celsius higher than 0.05.

The researchers said the new report results further confirmed that human burning of fossil fuels, atmospheric greenhouse gas emissions rise, which accelerated the global warming phenomenon.
