NASA and climate change

NASA released some fascinating news. 2009 was tied for the second-warmest year in modern history, and was part of the hottest decade.

The analysis of global surface temperatures also shows that, in the Southern Hemisphere, 2009 was the warmest since modern records began in 1880. A NASA official was quoted as saying, "global warming is continuing unabated."

The NASA group concluded that 2010 could be the warmest year on record if the current El Nino persists.
