The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration says global temperatures during August were the warmest on record--nearly a degree Celsius higher than the 20th century average of 15.6 degrees. The agency said the June-to-August average was also the highest dating back to 1880, when records were first kept, and also the highest ever for the first eight months of any year. Scientists say the high temperatures are the result of a combination of climate change related to greenhouse gas emissions and an El Niño weather system over the Pacific Ocean that adds heat to the atmosphere.

国家海洋和大气管理局表示,八月份全球平均气温达到了历史极值—比20世纪的平均值15.6°C将近提高了1°C.该机构表示7月份到8月份的平均气温也是自1880有记录以来的最高值,同时今年前八个月的平均气温也比以前任何一年的值都要高。科学家表示,由于温室气体排放和太平洋上空的厄尔尼诺现象,大气的温度升高从而引起气候变化,因而造成了全球温度升高。
