2005 could be hottest year ever recorded

The last three years were all in the top four hottest ever recorded, according to remote sensing data from NASA. 1998 is number 1 since accurate records have been available (beginning around 1890), but the bad news is that 2005 could top even that. Could be really bad news for the Great Barrier Reef, which is under threat of bleaching this (southern) summer. Makes you wonder whether the reef will even be around in 20 years time…
