Another year. Another record. The high temperatures we saw in 2015 are set to be beaten in 2016.
2016 is "very likely" to end up the hottest year on record, the United Nations World Meteorological Organization announced on Monday.
This would mean 16 of the 17 hottest years ever occurred in this century.
While the global increase in temperatures hovered around 1.2 degrees Celsius (2.16 degrees Fahrenheit), some places, like parts of Arctic Russia, saw increases as large as 7 degrees Celsius.
The U.N. is in the midst of hashing out the details of the Paris Agreement, which aims to keep global temperatures from rising more than 2 degrees Celsius by restricting fossil fuel use. This marks the second week of those talks.
