The year 2016 was the warmest on record, with an average surface temperature about 1.1°C above the level in the late 19th century. Most of this warming has occurred in the past 35 years and 16 of the 17 warmest years have occurred since 2001.1 The rising temperatures have been particularly noticeable in the Arctic. Arctic temperatures in the winter of 2016–17 were up to 25°C above normal winter temperatures.2 The extent of the polar Arctic ice cap also reached a new record low in the winter of 2016–17.3
