Year 2014 was the warmest year on record. This has been confirmed in the NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) State of the Climate in 2014 report which published in the Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society.

“The year 2014 was nominally the warmest year on record, according to four independent surface temperature observational analyses. There is, however, a measure of uncertainty for annual rankings in any of these due to uncertainty in the underlying annual global temperature anomalies themselves. Following the Arguez et al. (2013) approach for characterizing the uncertainty of annual global rankings, there is an estimated 48% probability that 2014 was in fact the warmest year over the 1880–2014 period in the NOAA record,” it said.
The report that concludes that the planet is warming represents data from across the globe and presents a picture of what happened in 2014. The variety of indicators shows us how our climate is changing, not just in temperature but from the depths of the oceans to the outer atmosphere.
