The warmest year was 2016, followed by 2017, 2015, 2018 and 2014, according to NASA's rankings.

In addition to the temperature records, the USA suffered $91 billion in direct losses from extreme weather events in 2018, the fourth most since 1980, Ardnt said.

There was disastrous flooding in India, a huge typhoon in the Philippines and deadly wildfires in Greece and Sweden. The other four in the top 5 have all been in the last five years.

"We're no longer talking about a situation where global warming is something in the future", said Gavin A. Schmidt, who is the director of the Goddard Institute for Space Studies. But in the long-term, the two agencies strongly agree on the pace and trajectory of global warming.

He added he was "very concerned with what is going on in the Arctic", which is heating up at around double the rate of the global average.

(WASHINGTON D.C.)- past year was the fourth warmest since 1880, according to independent analyses by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and the National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).

Weather dynamics often affect regional temperatures, so not every region experienced the same degree of warming. "The jumping up and down can be driven by internal processes".

On Wednesday, Feb. 6, scientists from NASA and NOAA issued their analysis of the global climate, including its economic impact, in 2018. "The 20 warmest years on record have been in the past 22 years".

"According to our calculations, the Gulf of Mexico region had it's third warmest year on-record this year", said Deke Arndt, chief of the monitoring section of NOAA's National Centers for Environmental Information.

I'd like to get more stories like this.

Scientists believe that without a rapid reduction in greenhouse gas emissions, the warming trend will continue and the effects of climate change more severe.

"The key issues in reducing emissions are moving towards renewable fuels for electricity, moving away from internal combustion engines for transport, sequestering carbon more efficiently in agriculture, making better decisions about how we organise our world so that we don't need so much energy", Schmidt said.

The combination of rising greenhouse gases and a mild El Nino underway in the Pacific Ocean means it's likely that 2019 will be hotter than 2018. As parts of the mid-western United States were gripped by a "polar vortex" last week that saw temperatures plunge to lows of -64 degrees Fahrenheit (-53C), US President Donald Trump suggested that the cold weather front cast doubt over the veracity of climate change data.
