The British Meteorological Office (Met Office) is predicting that this year will be the warmest on record - warmer even than the record-breaking 1998. The Met Office issued a news release predicting that gloval temperatures will be 0.54 degrees C above the average from 1961 - 1990 and slightly higher than the 0.52 degrees C level of 1998.
Katie Hopkins from Met Office Consulting said, "This new information represents another warning that climate change is happening around the world. Our work in the climate change consultancy team applies Met Office research to help businesses mitigate against risk and adapt at a strategic level for success in the new environment."
