According to NASA’s announcement on Thursday, 2020 is declared to be the hottest year exceeding 2016 by one-tenth of a degree. The average global temperature was found to be 1.84 degrees higher than 30 years average.
Another study of global warming conducted by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration found 2020 was the second warmest year in a 100 years average.
According to researchers this change in climate contributes to strong hurricanes, severe heat waves larger, and heavy rainfall which may even lead to floods. Some studies also show that this type of warming may also lead to the arrival of polar vortex and tornado outbreaks.
