The World Meteorological Organization said in a report released on Tuesday that the world experienced its hottest year in 2016.

Temperatures have risen 1.1°C. Temperatures have been more erratic in the Arctic.

This had led to wildfires. In fact the Fort McMurray wildfire was caused in part by climate change.

So far 2017 data shows that the globe continues to warm.

While the WMO study found El Nino contributed to the record-breaking temperatures, the organization's said man made carbon emissions remain the driving force behind the earth's warming.
