Bangalore: The new meteorologist report from World Meteorological Organisation (WMO) claims that 2011 is set to be the 10th warmest year on record. Reaching the top of records, the temperatures in 2011 is dating back to the 1850’s climatic condition, ‘Climategate’ scientists say.



The 13 warmest years on record have all taken place in between 1997 and 2011 (15 years). In three independent sets of data, WMO released the statistics of climate change in the countries meet in Durban, South Africa. The data reveals that the average global temperatures for January to October was 14.36 C, which is 0.36 C higher than the long-term average of 14C from the year 1961 to 1990.



This collected data is included in the climate change conference jointly done by the University of East Anglia (UAE) and the Met Office. The climate researchers at East Anglia University are presently criticized for the interference of politicians which may manipulate the evidence, stating the 5,000 leaked E-mails in Internet.



Brian Hoskins, Director of the Grantham Institute for Climate Change at Imperial College London and Professor of Meteorology at Reading University said, "What we've seen in the science is not one huge change but a number of things - the melting of the ice sheets, the permafrosts and release of methane and the carbon cycle - have tended towards this problem being more serious rather than less."



He mentioned the importance of global deal for decreasing the emissions of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases in the discussion on ‘efforts to tackle climate change’ in Durban. Otherwise, 2020 will be witnessing its peak emissions as it already starts to fall 3 percent in a year, he added. This has been criticized as the aftermaths of the man-made climate change while the so called ‘global warming’ awareness programmes are globally addressed.
