A(caps)ccording to analysis of NASA and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), Year 2021 has made a tie with year 2018 as the warmest year. Modern record-keeping started in 1880, And past eight years were hottest till now. Temperature in 2021 was 1.9 Degree Celsius warmer than early 20th century. Temperature has increased more than often after industrial revolution.

NASA says, This changes are due to anthropogenic activities which led to increased Carbon Dioxide and Greenhouse Gas emissions. Earth is already facing issues like Pollution, Global Warming, Ice melting, forest-fires and Sea level rise. Studying how rapidly these changes are occurring is a fundamental to adapt in living on hot planet.

Temperature Recording

Temperature is recorded by variety of objects and places. Temperature at ground level is recorded by Ships, Stations and Submarines. Temperature of Atmosphere is recorded via satellites.
Researchers analyse this data using computer algorithm and determine whether the planet is warming. There are many factors affecting temperature records. Likewise, year 2021 was an La-Lina year. NASA states, 2021 has lowered temperature by 0.06 Degree Celsius.

Annual temperature is derived from studies of records of Ground, Air and Water. It is not only ground that is heating up Earth. Energy stored in Oceans have been contributing to warmer years.

Climate Crises

There were many major event occurred on Earth, Of which Climate Crises were most focusing. Pacific Oceans faced Hurricanes, Heat Waves by United States and highest speed of winds was too recorded last year. More than 600 people have lost their lives in these natural calamities.

Climate Crises derives our mind towards Ice Melting. Ice melting is directly related to increase in sea level and frequent flooding. According to NASA, From last 30 years, Artic have warmed three times faster than usual.

NASA Administrator Bill Nelson says, “Science leaves no room for doubt: Climate change is the existential threat of our time, Eight of the top 10 warmest years on our planet occurred in the last decade, an indisputable fact that underscores the need for bold action to safeguard the future of our country – and all of humanity.
NASA’s scientific research about how Earth is changing and getting warmer will guide communities throughout the world, helping humanity confront climate and mitigate its devastating effects.”
