\»Undoubtedly, the first 6 months broke a temperature record and we think that 2010 will be the hottest year ever in the history of mankind. In some parts of Pakistan the temperature reaches 50 degrees. In many countries the heat if not breaking records, then close to it,\» said the chief climatologist national climate centre, Australia David Jones.
