NASA: 2005 Could Be Warmest Year Ever

Between man-made carbon dioxide trapping heat in the atmosphere and a predicted weak El Nino, NASA climatologists are predicting that 2005 could be the warmest year ever recorded. The current record-holder is the year 1998.

Last year was the fourth warmest year recorded. The second and third warmest years were 2002 and 2003, respectively.
