2013 tally: 7th warmest on record --- global warming continues apace.

"An analysis of global temperatures by NASA scientists shows that 2013 was the seventh warmest year since 1880 (tied with 2006 and 2009). Nine of the 10 warmest years on record all have occurred since 2000, with 2010 and 2005 ranking as the warmest. Scientists at NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) reported that 2013 continued the long-term trend of rising air temperatures over the land and sea surface."  http://earthobservatory.nasa.gov/IOTD/view.php?id=82918&src=eoa-iotd
