WE'RE NUMBER 5!
The year 2000 is expected to rank as the fifth warmest globally since
record keeping began in 1880, just slightly hotter than last year.
The only warmer years were 1998, 1997, 1995, and 1990, according to
the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. The 1990s
were the warmest decade on record, and the 10 warmest years have all
occurred since 1983. Read more on the Grist Magazine website.
