NASA and NOAA Scientists Available Jan. 13 and 14 To Share Latest Global Temperature Update With Your Viewers
From the first ever rainfall on the Greenland icecap to record-shattering heat in the Pacific Northwest, 2021 was a year of extremes. So how does long-term global temperature rise influence these extreme events? And where does 2021 rank in that long-term record?
On January 13th, climate experts from NASA and NOAA will release their annual assessment of global temperatures over the last year. NASA and NOAA scientists are available for one-on-one interviews on Jan. 13 from 12:00 PM - 3:00 PMand Jan. 14 from 6:00 AM - 11:00 AM EASTERN. Find out where 2021 fell in the climate record books, and what it means for the longer term trend.
Each year, NASA and NOAA undertake the huge task of measuring the average temperature of the Earth, using many thousands of measurements all around the globe. Understanding these long-term changes is vital to how we interact with our environment, from planting different crops to managing water resources, to predicting the strength of hurricanes.
Climate researchers from NASA and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) will release their annual assessments of global temperatures and discuss the major climate trends of 2021 during a media teleconference at 11 a.m. EST Thursday, Jan. 13. More information HERE
Anchor Intro: If you thought summer 2021 was hotter than ever you would be correct - for many of us it was!

It was also a year of extremes around the world – from the first ever rainfall on the Greenland icecap, to a historic late-season wildfire outside Denver, and a devastating tornado outbreak in the midwest.
So how did the rest of 2021 fare? NASA and NOAA have released the latest global temperature update for 2021. Here tell us where 2021 fell in the record books is NASA/NOAA expert: xxxx.
