The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) has announced that the rising temperature since the 19th century has accelerated further since 2000, with 2020 expected to be the hottest year in history. A blog by Statista data journalist Katharina Buchholz at the World Economic Forum website referred to a figure published by NASA showing the monthly divergence from average temperature in selected years. These findings are also supported in a paper published in Nature Climate Change on June 29, 2020 (Clem et al.) showing that the South Pole has experienced more than three times the global warming over the past 30 years with a record warming  of 0.61 ± 0.34 °C per decade.
