Next year to be the hottest year ever

Sharing is caring!

Come 2016,  the year is set to be the warmest on record, according to a global forecast by the UK’s Met Office.Man-made climate change, as well as the El Niño oceanic phenomenon — from unusually warm waters in the tropical Pacific Ocean — are cited as the reasons for the hot conditions.The global outlook for 2016 is warmer than the Met Office’s forecast for 2015, which had a range of 0.52C to 0.76C. The Met Office forecast is based on the “key drivers” of global climate change, and does not take into account random events, such as large volcanic eruptions which can cause a temporary cooling effect.The average global temperature for 2016 is expected to be between 0.72C and 0.96C warmer than the average temperature of 14C.
