April hottest on Record

Information released by the US National Aeronautics and Space Administration on Saturday showed that April 2016 was the sixth month in a row to be more than one per cent above the 1951-1980 average.

Increases measured by experts around the world meant that within the last year, global temperatures had increased by 25 per cent of the total increase since the 1880s. Experts predict sea ice levels will be at an all time low this summer. Meanwhile, within the last 18 months, around one quarter of all coral colonies in the oceans had suffered bleaching as a result of warmer water and increased acidification.
