Over the past few years the Earth has been slowly warming.

However new research suggests that the planet is about to get hotter at a much faster rate.

Over the next four years the planet is expected to get much hotter according to a new forecasting model.

Lead author of the Nature Communications paper, Florian Sevellec, says that rising CO2 levels have caused the temperature of the planet to rise.

Over the past 10 years or so the Earth has been in a natural "cooling" phase, even though temperatures have continued to climb, that pahse will soon end.

It already looks like 2018 will be the hottest year on record.
