Drought, flood, famine – it's hot and getting hotter

This decade is on track to be the hottest on record, according to the UN's World Meteorological Organization, and 2009 is the fifth-warmest year on record.

Speaking on the sidelines of the climate conference, WMO head Michel Jarraud pointed to extreme hot spots this year – Australia had its third-warmest year since records began in 1850, “with three exceptional heat waves.”

“I could go on. There was the worst drought in five decades which affected millions of people in China, a poor monsoon season in India causing severe droughts, massive food shortages associated with a big drought in Kenya,” he said.
