A video from the Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) of the United States Space Agency (NASA) warns of the uncontrollable increase in temperature on Earth in the last sixty years, caused by global warming.
The 15-second video entitled Six Decades of a Warming Earth reports the temperatures recorded from 1950 to 2013, and the increase in average degrees using colors to indicate increase or decrease from the same.
In the final seconds you can see how much of the planet's map acquires a reddish hue, which means that in these areas the temperature has been rising considerably in recent years.
According to a report from NASA's Goddard Institute for Space Studies released in January, 2013 tied with 2009 and 2006 for seventh on the list of the warmest years on record, back in the year 1880.
The report thus confirms the trend of long-term global warming, the same one that has its reason for being in greenhouse gas emissions.
The global mean temperature last year was 14.6 degrees Celsius, 0.6 degrees above the 20th century average. The responsibilities for this increase are not unknown to anyone.
Last year the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), created by the World Meteorological Organization and the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP), argued that human activity is the main cause of the global warming since 1950.
The video shared by NASA is quite clear, high temperatures are taking over the world little by little, and this is seen more strongly in the final seconds, from the last years of the 80s to 2013.
