2014 Warmest Year in Modern Record

The year 2014 ranks as Earth’s warmest since records began in 1880.

9 of the 10 warmest years in the instrumental record have now occurred since the year 2000.

The exception was 1998, which was affected by a very strong El Nino event.

That means nobody born since 1976 has experienced a colder-than-average year.

2014 was not even affected by an El Nino, which has been the case for previous record years.
