This is quite exciting for me. They are using an absolute reference from 'Level 0'. Nobody uses that, but they do. They said that last year was 1.1C, and now this year will 1.1C. That's 'continuing the trend'. Maybe next year will be 1.1C.
In the year 2015, it was 1.0C. But 2016 must have been 1.3C. All the comments say that Boris is right to abolish the bbc. Such fun.
ps. the last time I was so excited was when the two nasa guys said Greenland's glaciers were growing again. Nobody has heard from them since. Perhaps they are frozen in the glaciers. :)
pps. this article has gone viral (for me), which doesn't mean much...
