NASA Confirms 2023 Climate Was Warmest Year on Record

According to an Analysis by NASA, earth's surface temperature in the 2023 Climate was the warmest year on record. Global temperatures last year were around 2.1 degrees above average.NASA is comparing this data to a period between 1951-1980, which was recorded by scientists from NASA's Goddard Institute for Space Studies.“NASA and NOAA’s global temperature report confirms what billions of people around the world experienced last year; we are facing a climate crisis. From extreme heat, to wildfires, to rising sea levels, we can see our Earth is changing. There’s still more work to be done, but President Biden and communities across America are taking more action than ever to reduce climate risks and help communities."

NASA’s PACE Satellite Will Help Research The Climate

Next month, NASA will launch a three-year mission to study Earth's atmosphere and oceans from space using the PACE Satellite.PACE Stands for Plankton, Aerosol, Cloud and Ocean Satellite. It's scheduled to launch as soon as February 6, and will help gather data to help fight air pollution and climate change.“The ocean and atmosphere interact in ways that need ongoing research to fully understand. With PACE, we’ll open our eyes to many new aspects of climate change.” Jeremy Werdell, project scientist for the PACE missionAccording to NASA, Climate Change's impact on the ocean is leading to sea levels rising, as well as marine heat haves to a loss of biodiversity.One thing PACE will help NASA do is view Phytoplankton. These are microscopic organisms that float near the water'...
