2016 set to be hottest year on record

Graphic News

November 14, 2016 -- Global average temperatures in 2016 are likely to be the warmest on record, according to preliminary data released by the World Meteorological Organization. Temperatures from January to September were 0.88 degrees C above the long-term (1961-90) average and 1.2C above pre-industrial levels. The Paris Climate Agreement, backed by almost 200 nations including U.S. but rejected by President-elect Donald Trump, has the overriding goal of limiting the rise in temperatures to “well below” 2C above pre-industrial times.


NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era.

28 years ago — April 2, 1991 — the original Graphic News launched using a precursor to today’s websites that used email technology. These enabled infographics to be delivered electronically around the world over telephone lines. What was possible was very limited - It took 10 minutes for a 100K file to download.

Since then delivery speeds and website technology have moved on. The new website will offer the best online experience possible now, adding many new features (and offering new opportunities for the future), but still enabling existing users to select and download infographics and enjoy the distinct brand of visual journalism that is Graphic News.

Over the coming weeks I will give further information. Please contact me if you have any questions. Fiona Roberts, froberts @
