14.5°C - April 2010 was the hottest ever recorded

SHOOT: The hottest ever? I wonder if that has anything to do with that thing people talk about, what is it? That funny theory that was going around until a while back. Global warming or something? I wonder if the hottest ever April has anything to do with us, you know, driving around every day. *Shrugs shoulders and turns on the TV, nothing to do with me. What else is news?*

Geneva - April 2010 was the hottest ever recorded, with an average temperature of 14.5°C, the UN weather agency said on Tuesday.

Citing data from the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the World Meteorological Organisation said that the average temperature on both land and ocean this April reached 0.76°C above that of the 20th century average of 13.7°C.

A statement from the US agency noted that warmer-than-normal conditions "dominated the globe, with the most prominent warmth in Canada, Alaska, the eastern United States, Australia, South Asia, northern Africa and northern Russia".

Weather records go as far back as 1880.
