Global Warming Data Shows 2014 To Be Hottest Year In History

Phoenix, Arizona – Global Warming has been a topic of discussion since at least the 1990’s, when it became a front and center topic for politicians around the globe. Whether you like it or not, scientific data shows that the globe is getting hotter almost each and every year. Carbon emissions have been to blame for most of the atmospheric change, and those have risen greatly since the middle of the 20th century. As one would guess, climate temperature increases on average right along with those carbon emissions.

Since the 1960’s the average temperature around the world has risen at a much higher pace then at any previously recorded period of time. It may still be too early to show if any recent efforts have made an effect on the rate of increase, but either way 2014 went down on record as being the hottest year to date. Some claim that we have made some progress towards reducing the rate of increase for global warming, but others also claim that human factors only plan a minor part in the planet’s warming.

Solar activity is certainly looked at to paint a more complete picture of global warming, but data analysis is still in its early stages at this point. Since we cannot currently affect the Sun’s effects on our planet, we should remain diligently focused on doing our part to reduce our impact on Earth’s atmosphere. There have been many laws passed around the globe regulating harmful materials, emissions, and other key identified factors. As the human population continues to grow, so too does our output and consumption. It will take a lot of dedication and education to make a change in the impact that our race has on our ecosystem in the future.
