Post How Warm Was This Summer?

It is cool outside now, but it was hot outside this summer. Is that because of a local heatwave, or because it is summer, or because of global warming? Just how hot is it compared to the past few years? These are the types of questions that NASA seeks to answer with its latest image showing the anomalies in land surface temperatures when compared to recent years. However, you need to read the information below to understand the full implications of this scientific visualization.
This map, based on land surface temperatures observed by the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA's Terra satellite, shows temperature anomalies for the Russian Federation from July 20'27, 2010, compared to temperatures for the same dates from 2000 to 2008.
