This is the the prediction that the Met office has given. (See article)
Here are some quotes from the article;
Next year is “more likely than not” to be the world’s warmest year on record and man-made climate change will be a factor, according to the Met Office.
It announced at the Copenhagen climate change summit that it expected the global average temperature next year to be almost 0.6C warmer than the 1961 to 1990 average. It forecast an annual average of 14.58C compared with 14.52C in 1998.
They maybe right, but they did predict a 'barbecue summer' for this year.
Let us come back to this next year as see if they were right.
Anyone want to make any bets on the outcome.
