    • This year is on way  to be about the 10th warmest globally since records began in 1850
    • The warmest year on record was 1998, followed by 2005 and 2003, with other years this century closely bunched. Tenth place would make 2008 the least warm since 1999.
    • Rising temperatures will bring more floods, heatwaves, more powerful storms and rising sea levels
    • Arctic sea ice shrank to a record low in summer in 2007 and almost matched the low again in 2008. U.N. studies say the region may be warming twice as fast as the world average.
