The world last year wasn't quite as warm as it has been for most of the past decade, government scientists said Thursday, Jan. 19, 2012, but it continues the general trend of rising temperatures. In the United States, it was only 1 degree above normal, which made it the 23rd warmest on record. But 17 cities - including Houston, Miami, Atlantic City, Trenton and Austin - had their warmest years. (AP Photo/Houston Chronicle, Cody Duty)

BRISTOL, ENGLAND - JANUARY 20: A freshwater stingray pup looks out from a holding tank at Bristol Zoo's aquarium on January 20, 2012 in Bristol, England. The fish is one of nine ocellated freshwater stingray pups that were born last week after two new females were introduced to the Zoo?s male stingray last year. The babies - six females and three males, currently just 12cm (4.7 inches) long but will eventually grow to the size of a car tyre - have now been moved into a separate, off-show tank to keep them safe from larger predators in the display tank. In the coming months they will be re-homed, once they are bigger and stronger (Photo by Matt Cardy/Getty Images)

This Jan. 17, 2012 satellite image provided by DigitalGlobe shows the luxury cruise ship Costa Concordia, which ran aground on Friday, Jan. 13, lying on its starboard side just off the tiny Tuscan island of Isola del Giglio, Italy.

Satellites are used to monitor the area while authorities are preparing to remove the fuel from inside the vessel. (AP Photo/DigitalGlobe) MANDATORY CREDIT
