Researchers claim that record-breaking high temperatures will become the norm in the coming years.

The most comprehensive long-range forecast on how global warming will impact on our weather suggests that from 2010 every year has at least a 50% chance of exceeding the record year of 1998 when average global temperatures reached 14.54C.

The forecast from researchers at the Met Office’s Hadley Centre in Exeter points to hotter summers and episodes of torrential rain in the UK.

They say there is likely to be an initial stalling of rising temperatures in the next two years, before a sharp increase rise by the end of the decade.

Inevitably, however, the climate change sceptics have seized on the revelation of a possible stalling to maintain that global warming has still not been sufficiently proved to warrant the type of warnings being issued.

    I am a regular reader of your article. And I am very impress with your blog upon Global Warming. Now I am also write a blog upon effects and causes of Global Warming. This blog is collection of news & reviews like the study found that global warming since 1985 has been caused neither by an increase in solar radiation nor by a decrease in the flux of galactic cosmic rays. Some researchers had also suggested that the latter might influence global warming because the rays trigger cloud formation.

    Oh, you didn’t hear about 1998? No longer the hottest year on record.
