   Global Warming: Historical Temperatures

  It's now official, 2005 was the hottest year on record. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA.gov) has just updated global temperatures from 1890 to 2005, and 2005 beat out 1998 by a hair. Global-warming skeptics had dismissed 1998 as due to an unusually strong El Niņo, but 2005 was not. Moreover, 2005 was the coolest solar year since 1987.
