The British Met Office has predicted that the year 2010 would be the world’s warmest year. The uncontrolled climate change and natural disasters will make year 2010 the world’s most hottest year. Year 1998 was the hottest year in the history of last two centuries. The predictions are year 2010 will be even warmer than 1998. Green House gases (GHG) will contribute to most of this heating. The emission of Green house gases is in rising trend and it will make the environment hotter enough to be the world’s hottest year.
But contradictions are there. Scientists are divided into two groups, one supporting the fact and other rejecting the fact. Ben Stewart of Greenpeace said, "If 2010 turns out to be the hottest year on record, it might go some way towards exploding the myth, spread by the climate conspiracy theorists that we're experiencing global cooling. In reality the world is getting possibly a lot hotter, and humans are causing it."
The British Met office has also predicted that most of the years between 2010 and 2020 will be hotter than 1998. It means the coming years are not easy for living beings. More hotter the earth will become, more natural disasters it will bring.
I don’t know whether 2010 will be the world’s hottest year or not, I am sure of Global warming. The earth will continue to warm if we will not stop the emission of green house gases into the atmosphere. But it seems to be non realistic in today’s competitive world.
Updates on Global Warming:
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has revealed that the first 8 months of the year 2010 and year 1998 are the hottest ever recorded in history. So the prediction by British Met official is turning true about year 2010.
