The latest data released by NASA reveals that the year 2020 is on the verge of becoming the hottest year on record in the world.

2016, the year of the super El Nino, is considered to be the hottest year on record in the world.

But the year 2020, which was devastated by wildfires and Atlantic hurricanes from California to Siberia, was very similar, according to a NASA report released yesterday.

The three years 2016-2019 and 2020 were described as the three hottest years in history, and the decade ending in 2020 was described as the hottest decade ever.

The average global temperature is currently 1.2% higher than it was before pre - industrialization.

Meteorologists point out that in a few more years, it will exceed the expected maximum limit of 1.5% of the Paris Environmental Agreement.
