2016 was Earth's warmest year on record, global report shows

Trump administration releases report confirming 2016 as hottest year since records began

But the annual report released Thursday by NOAA and other agencies including the American Meteorological Society documented a series of other alarming statistics and records.

Report suggests USA is already feeling the impact of climate change Average temperatures throughout the United States have risen rapidly since 1980, according to a new report.

A range of key climate and weather indicators show the planet is growing increasingly warm, a trend that shows no signs of slowing down, said the annual State of the Climate Report.

The US President has repeatedly dismissed man-made climate change as "a Chinese hoax" and he sent shockwaves through the global community when he announced the US would withdraw from the Paris Agreement.

Last week, the Trump administration issued its first written notification to the United Nations that it intends to withdraw from the Paris climate accord.

"Major indicators of climate change continued to reflect trends consistent with a warming planet", the report said.

The global average sea level was also the highest on record, 3.25 inches above 1993, when satellite records began, the report found.

Global annual average atmospheric Carbon dioxide concentration was 402.9 parts per million (ppm) which surpassed 400 ppm for the first time in the modern atmospheric measurement record and in ice core records dating back as far as 800,000 years, the NOAA said.

In response to the past three years' record-breaking temperatures, authors of the new study calculated the likelihood of observing a three-year streak of record high temperatures since yearly global temperature records began in the late 19th century and the likelihood of seeing such a streak since 2000, when much of the warming has been observed.

The Arctic is warming faster than lower latitudes. The global sea surface temperate broke a record high.

In equatorial regions, 93 tropical storms have occurred in 2016 more than the average of 82 between 1981 and 2010, but less than 101 in 2015.

Several countries, including Mexico and India, have recorded annual temperature records in 2016.

Over the northern and eastern Indian peninsula, a week-long heatwave at the end of April saw temperatures exceed 111F (44C), contributed to a water crisis for 330 million people and to 300 fatalities, the report said.

The data compiled in the report showed 2016 was overall a year of records.

Washington is accusing China of taking an aggressive stance on the issue because of its island reclamation projects. The Trump administration has vowed to conduct more robust South China Sea operations.

Meanwhile, the weather phenomenon known as El Nino, which warms waters around the equator in parts of the Pacific, was strong in the first half of 2016, leading to increasingly wet conditions in some places.
