Climate Central: most interesting climate findings of the year

Climate Central reviewed last year's climate research and studies that are crucial to shaping both what we know about the world we currently live in and what we can expect in the future depending on how we respond to climate change. The list of most interesting and fascinating findings includes:

- We could be entering an era of warming unseen in at least 1,000 years
- Atlantic circulation is weakening, which could be bad news for weather and sea levels
- The global warming hiatus might just be a data artifact
- Ice sheets in Antarctica could rapidly melt, causing seas to rise up to four times faster than current projections, and others.
