Analysis of temperature and other data from more than 1,000 meteorological stations worldwide has found 2013 was the seventh warmest year since 1880, adding more evidence to the long-term rise in global warming, according to NASA's Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) in New York. Nine of the 10 warmest years in the 134 covered by the analysis have occurred since 2000, and the 10th was 1998. The latest GISS analysis finds 2013 tied with 2009 and 2006 in global temperature averages.”
