Why climate change is important: NASA report shows 2021 one of hottest on record

However, there were only 37 hurricane-strength tropical cyclones worldwide — the lowest number on record, just surpassing the now second-lowest record of 38 set in 2009.

NASA administer Bill Nelson said the report serves as a stark warning that action needs to be taken to combat climate change.

He said: “Science leaves no room for doubt: Climate change is the existential threat of our time.

“Eight of the top 10 warmest years on our planet occurred in the last decade, an indisputable fact that underscores the need for bold action to safeguard the future of our country – and all of humanity.”
