But remember, climate change doesn't exist. We know this because the flat-earth, right wing loons tell us so.
2011 has been the second warmest year on record for the UK, according to the Met Office. It said provisional figures show that only 2006, with an average temperature of 9.73C (49.5F) was warmer than 2011's average temperature of 9.62C. Despite this year seeing high temperatures for long periods – including the warmest April and spring on record, the second warmest autumn and the warmest October day – early figures suggest we are ending 2011 with a "close to average" December.
