It’s official: 2010 was the warmest year ever recorded

You know how climate change deniers often cite the fact that 1998 was the warmest year on record and therefore the planet must no longer be warming? (This despite the fact that the last decade has been the hottest ever since records began.) Well, now it seems that 1998 was not actually the hottest ever.

Following the release of new data from Russia and bases within the Arctic Circle, scientists have now calculated that 2010 has overtaken 1998 to now be the warmest year on record, followed in second place by 2005 as 1998 is pushed into third place. The recalculation of the annual global mean temperature records follows the release of weather data from more than 600 locations around the Arctic Circle.
