Speculation is already arising as to who should earn the Nobel prize for the theory of cosmic inflation, fueled by the presence of scientists Alan Guth and Andrei Linde at today’s announcement.

According to data released by NASA and NOAA this week, 2012 was the 9th or 10th warmest year (respectively) globally on record. NASA’s analysis produced the 9th warmest year in its dataset; NOAA recorded the 10th warmest year in its dataset. The two agencies have slightly different analysis techniques, which in this case resulted in not only different temperature anomaly values but somewhat different rankings as well.
