World to have its hottest summer ever by 2026


The world will almost definitely experience its hottest year on record in the next few years, leading meteorolog­ists have warned.

There is a 93 per cent likelihood there will be a new warmest year on record by 2026, according to a United Nations report. An El Niño-enhanced 2016 is the current hottest year on record, with 2020 and 2019 second and third, respective­ly.

Data is not yet available for 2022. UN Secretary-general António Guterres said extreme weather is getting worse.
