This year’s January was the warmest ever measured on  the Earth.
This was revealed by the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration this week. The average temperature at the earth’s surface was 1.04 degrees higher than the average for January in the 1900s.
This means the previous record, from 2007, has been beaten. January was the ninth consecutive month of record heat, and the average temperature for the entire 2015 was the highest since the records began in the 1880s.
The reasons for the high temperatures  last year is believed to be the El Niño weather phenomenon and man-made global warming.
