New York Times: On Wednesday, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and NASA announced that average global temperatures in 2015 were 0.16 °C higher than in 2014, the previous warmest year on record. Also, 2015's increase over 2014 has been the largest so far and continues the upward trend in global temperatures. Both NOAA's and NASA's analyses agree with reports from the UK's Met Office and the Japan Meteorological Agency. According to an earlier NOAA report, 2015 was the second-warmest year on record for the 48 contiguous US states.
