2010 is set to be among three warmest years on record, and will cap the warmest decade ever, the UN's World Meteorological Organisation (WMO) said at the world climate talks on Thursday.

"2010 is almost certain to be in the top three warmest years on record," WMO Secretary General Michel Jarraud said. "It is probably the warmest one up to October-November."

"The decade from 2001 to 2010 has set a new record, it will be the warmest decade ever since we have records," he told a press conference.
