2020 was effectively tied with 2016 for the hottest year on record, as global warming linked to greenhouse gas emissions showed no signs of letting up.
Siberia and the Arctic were among the hottest regions. The heat fueled wildfires that pumped even more carbon dioxide into the atmosphere.
The heat was also felt in Europe, which had its warmest year ever and experienced blistering heat waves as late as September.

With only a week left in his term, the House impeached President Trump, but he will probably finish his term before he stands trial in the Senate. Here’s how the process works.
The House’s impeachment of Trump was the equivalent of an indictment in a criminal case.

The Senate will next act as a jury to determine whether to convict and remove him. Image
The second impeachment of Trump has taken place with extraordinary speed — but the next steps won’t happen immediately. Image

Afghans engulfed by violence have begun carrying slips of paper known as pocket notes — homemade, civilian versions of a soldier’s dog tags — with vital information should they be wounded or killed in an attack.
Tareq Qassemi knows too well how dangerous Kabul can be. “I could get killed on my way to work or in a car or anywhere, and no one knows about me and they will look for my body everywhere,” he said. “I could just vanish.”
Masouma Tajik, a computer science student in Kabul, carries a pocket note with the phone numbers of family members who live hundreds of miles away so that authorities can contact them if she’s a victim of an attack.

As President Trump railed against the election results from a stage near the White House, his loyalists were already gathering at the Capitol.

We reconstructed how that rally gave way to a violent mob that forced the evacuation of Congress.
Here’s what was happening before noon

— Near the White House, Trump addresses supporters he had summoned to Washington to stop the certification of President-elect Joe Biden’s victory.
— Meanwhile, hundreds also assemble on the Capitol lawn, more than a mile away.
From 12:15 p.m to 12:50 p.m.

— During Trump’s speech, he tells the crowd to walk to the Capitol. “You have to show strength,” he says.
— Supporters leave for the Capitol even before the speech ends.
— Pipe bombs are found at the RNC and DNC headquarters.

Three New York Times journalists were at the Capitol when it was breached. Here’s how they experienced it, in their own words.
Erin Schaff, a Times staff photographer, describes “hyperventilating, unsure of what to do” after an encounter with violent protesters.
Nicholas Fandos, a Times congressional reporter, said he had “10 seconds to decide whether to run out or get locked in myself.” He chose to stay, “deciding I should keep my eyes on the senators I was there to cover, no matter what came next.”
