Global warmiing

Global temperatures in 2020 are on pace for one of the planet's top two warmest years in 141 years of temperature records, according to separate new analyses.

NOAA's State of the Climate report released Monday found that temperatures in the first six months of 2020 were second warmest of any January-June period, trailing only 2016 in records dating to 1880.

Based on this data, NOAA calculated a 36% chance 2020 will end up as the record warmest year.

What's impressive about the warm start to 2020 is the lack of warmth provided by an El Niño.
