Warmest years since 1880
Our planet is alive

The Earth is a living planet, now this "macro body" is feverish and humanity that dwells in panic every flood, storm, tsunami and another earthquake.
It assesses the productive area required for a population to meet its consumption of resources and needs to absorb waste.

The 10 warmest years
The temperature at the surface of the globe in 2012 was higher by 0.55 ° C (1 ° F), compared to the average temperatures from 1951 to 1980 (source data from the Goddard Institute for Space Studies published in January 2013). The temperature of the planet varies from year to year, so quickly that it is possible to represent a color map, this increase as a sensitive indicator of the frequency of climate anomalies. Global average temperature over 5 years, has stagnated since ten years, which we interpret as a combination of natural variables and a slowdown in the growth rate of climate forcing. The analysis reveals that in 2012 NASA had almost the same global temperature in 2011, well below the peak reached in 2010. These short-term global fluctuations are mainly associated with natural oscillations of surface temperatures of the tropical Pacific sea. But 2012 is nominally the ninth warmest year since 1880. We reject more CO2 and other waste and that odorous likely to continue because the energy needs of the world population increases, with demographics. We note at once that nature unleashes more violently and at the same time that the living world is struggling to adapt to these climatic fluctuations, leaving the weakest. Everything happens as if our "macro body" Earth is currently undergoing a small "fever".
Image: The analysis of the NASA surface temperature of the Earth shows that 2012 is the ninth warmest year since 1880. This is from 1880, as global temperature data are recorded with sufficient weather stations around the world. Scientists at the Goddard Institute compared the average temperature of each year, the average from 1951 to 1980. This 30-year period provides a basis for measuring global warming due to increasing atmospheric levels of greenhouse gas emissions.
