Question

According to the Met Office figures, 2014 was officially the warmest year in the Central England area (which covers London) since official records began over 350 years ago and marks a year punctuated by broken records. 2014 started with a record wet and stormy winter with the Thames Barrier closing an unprecedented 50 times. It then experienced its driest September and warmest Halloween on record. Are you concerned?
