Obviously the temperature of the earth has recorded the highest ever in history for the third consecutive year
We found that the average temperature of the earth has been updated the highest record in 2016, continuing from 2015, 2015.

NASA GISS: NASA News & Feature Releases: NASA, NOAA Data Show 2016 Warmest Year on Record Globally
American Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration(NOAA) and NASA individually announced the average global temperature of 2016 on January 18, 2017 respectively. In both announcements, 2016 was "the hottest year in observation history".
According to the announcement of NOAA, the average temperature in the world is 14.83 degrees Celsius (58.69 degrees C), exceeding the highest 2015 year by 0.04 degrees, and continuing updating the record high in observation history for the third consecutive year from 2014 Become.
The trend of the average temperature of the earth from 1887 when the oldest observation record remains is as follows. Although there is an increase / decrease depending on the year, it is clear that the rising temperature of the temperature is obvious, increasing after 2014 without decreasing.
According to NOAA, the sea surface temperature in 2016 is 0.76 degrees higher than the average value, the melting speed of the sea ice in the Arctic Circle is unprecedented, the sea ice area is 3.92 million square kilometers, which is the smallest since the observation in 1979 . In addition, it is announced that the Antarctic sea ice has reached 4.15 million square miles (about 11 million square kilometers), becoming the second smallest observation history.
Meanwhile, NASA continues to observe global temperature changes to investigate climate change. If you look at the following movies released by NASA, you can see that the temperature of the earth is increasing year by year.

NASA's annual average annual temperature chart also shows that the temperature of the earth is on an upward trend. Mr. Gavin Schmidt of NASA's Goddard Space Research Institute says, "I do not expect to update the highest record every year, but it is clear that it is on a long-term upward trend."
According to NASA, the cause of global warming in 2016 is largely due to the El Niño phenomenon, and the average temperature may be low in 2017, but emission of greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide accompanying human economic activity continues That said, it does not mean that the global warming trend will not stop.
Inauguration ceremony will be held on January 20, 2017US President Donald Trump says, "The cause-and-effect relationship between greenhouse gas and global warming is questionable" and "Climate change is a Chinese inventorate", arguing that the international framework of global warming countermeasures paris Claimed to withdraw America from the agreementdoing. What kind of policy the United States, the world's second largest carbon dioxide emitter after China, will take under the Trump regime seems to have a negative effect on the future of the global average temperature.
