2014 was the hottest year on record

Baby it has been cold outside, but don't let that fool you. 2014 was the hottest on record, government agencies confirm.

“This is the latest in a series of warm years, in a series of warm decades. While the ranking of individual years can be affected by chaotic weather patterns, the long-term trends are attributable to drivers of climate change that right now are dominated by human emissions of greenhouse gases,” said Gavin Schmidt, director of NASA's Goddard Institute for Space Studies, in a press release.

I expect Justin Harris and/or another like-minded Arkansas legislator to soon file a resolution declaring the scientists don't know what they're talking about. It snowed yesterday. What other proof is necessary? Plus, Fox News says there's no climate change.
