2016 on track for hottest year on record
MARRAKECH, Morocco - The U.N. weather agency says 2016 is set to break the record for the hottest year since measurements began in the 19th century.
The World Meteorological Organization says preliminary data through October shows global average temperatures this year are 2.2 degrees Fahrenheit above pre-industrial levels.
The global climate agreement adopted in Paris last year calls for limiting the temperature rise since the industrial revolution to 3.6 degrees Fahrenheit or even 2.7 degrees F.
