The world is heading for the warmest decade since 1850

Scientists from the Met Office are forecasting that the decade 2014 – 2023 will be the warmest since 1850 (when records started).

The Met Office says it has a 90% confidence limit in the forecasts for the years ahead.

It says that from 2019 to 2023, we will see temperatures ranging from 1.03C to 1.57C above the 1850-1900 level, with enhanced warming over much of the globe, especially over areas like the Arctic.
