World in 2014 still heading towards a record hot year

New global temperature records are normally accompanies by an El Niño event but 2014 is well on the way without one. NASA reported at the weekend that last month was the warmest September globally since records began being kept in 1880. The first nine months of this year are already close to a record high level as well – 0.65 degrees Centigrade higher than the long term average compared with the 0.67 degree record nine months in 2010.
