If 2009 left you a little hot under the collar, there was more to that feeling than job losses, bankruptcies, foreclosures, etc.
Turns out it actually was pretty hot out there.
According to NASAâ€™s Goddard Institute for Space Studies, 2009 tied for the second-warmest year on record, trailing only 2005. In the southern hemisphere, ’09 was the warmest year since the inception of record-keeping in 1880.
