Global temperatures are compiled for various areas, including global (land-ocean), global (meteorological stations), three latitude bands, and hemispheric, by the Goddard Institute for Space Studies of NASA.

A graph of the global temperatures (for the land/ocean) from 1880 to 2015, show a general warming from 1910 to the early 1940’s, a cooling from the early 1940’s to the mid-1970’s; a general warming from the mid-1970’s to about 1998; a stable period of temperatures until about the 2010, and  a warming from 2011.

 

The green bars on the graph show the uncertainty estimates at various times

The yearly global temperatures (expressed as differences from the 1951-1980 average), since 1998 are:

1998:   +0.58 degrees Celsius

1999:   +0.33 degrees Celsius

2000:   +0.35 degrees Celsius

2001:   +0.48 degrees Celsius

2002:   +0.56 degrees Celsius

2003:   +0.56 degrees Celsius

2004:   +0.49 degrees Celsius

2005:   +0.69 degrees Celsius

2006:   +0.63 degrees Celsius

2007:   +0.66 degrees Celsius

2008:   +0.53 degrees Celsius

2009:   +0.64 degrees Celsius

2010:   +0.72 degrees Celsius

2011:   +0.60 degrees Celsius

2012:   +0.63 degrees Celsius

2013:   +0.65 degrees Celsius

2014:   +0.74 degrees Celsius

2015:   +0.87 degrees Celsius
