2015 was officially the warmest year in recorded history

  • Data released by NASA and NOAA shows that 2015 was the hottest year in recorded history, and also that the year-on-year increment between 2014 and 2015 was the largest recorded so far. Constant rise in greenhouse gases in the form of CO2 emissions due to burning of fossil fuels is the major reason behind this change in temperature patterns. Despite reassurances from several world leaders that they are doing their best to tackle global warming, stats like this prove that it is very much prevalent and greater will is required to curb the same.
