If you suspected that 2016's climate was off-the-charts extreme, you were right. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's new State of the Climate report confirms that last year was the hottest ever. The last time it was that hot? 2015. Sea levels, greenhouse gas concentrations, and ocean temperatures also broke previous records. Kim Cobb, professor in the School of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences, is quoted as saying that 2016 was "the year we crossed a new threshold of climate change." Cobb did not work on the NOAA report.
