Posted by Kyle Brookings on Saturday, February 9, 2019

2018 is another year for the record books.

The agreement among NASA, NOAA, JMA, Berkeley Earth and the UK Met Office is the last year was the fourth warmest year on record.

In the years to come, it will only get warmer.

Not all the data is exactly the same due to how some organizations data and calculations, however all agree that Earth was warmer this year.

Berkeley Earth says that, "many of the changes in land-surface temperature can be explained by a combination of volcanoes and a proxy for human greenhouse gas emissions. Solar variation does not seem to impact the temperature trend."
