The year 2016 was the warmest on record for the planet as a whole, surpassing temperature records that date back 137 years, according to an annual report compiled by scientists around the globe.

 

For global temperatures, last year surpassed the previous record-holder: 2015.

 

According to the annual, peer-reviewed State of the Climate report, it was also a year of other extremes and records, including the highest sea levels and lowest sea ice in the Arctic and Antarctica. And, it was one of the worst years for droughts.

 

The 299-report, published by the Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society, relies on the work of hundreds of scientists in 60 countries. It shows that 2016 was "very extreme and it is a cause for concern," says NOAA climate scientist Jessica Blunden, a co-editor of the report.

Warmer Air can store more water as liquid, to create more rain when the far larger clouds get heavy enough and are stirred up in the warmer volatile atmosphere.

 

In turn this means more extreme rainfall in areas that have never had it like that before.

 

Again - we are forewarned and get our 'Go bags ready' as our towns and cities suffer more overwhelming flooding than ever before. Maybe add inflatable raft/dinghi/kayak to the list of stuff we need on standby!
