February has been announced as the hottest on record.
The latest figures from NASA show last month’s temperatures were the hotter than any other month ever recorded.
The global surface temperatures across land and ocean in February were 1.35C warmer than the average temperature for the month, from the baseline period of 1951-1980.
The global record was set just one month earlier, with January already beating the average for that month by 1.15C above the average for the baseline period.
Added to this NASA Data from January 2016 shows that 2015 was the warmest year since modern record-keeping began in 1880.
Carbon dioxide concentration levels in the atmosphere were also at a record levels.
This means that in the last 3 years there has been an increase in carbon dioxide level every year.
