Mean surface temperature anomalies for 2005 compared to average temperatures from 1951 to 1980 (source: NASA)

Based on estimates by NASA's Goddard Institute for Space Studies, 2005 was the warmest year since reliable wide-spread instrumental measurements became available in the late 1800s, beating the previous record set in 1998 by a few hundredths of a degree Celsius.

Other researchers place 1998 at the top of the temperature record.

[edit] Geography

Due to a combination of the aftermath of the 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake, and an overactive hurricane season and other factors, 2005 was also the costliest year for natural disasters, with world wide damages estimated at over 200 billion dollars.
