A new study by the Federal Environment Office shows temperature rises in the country is twice as high than the world average at 2 degrees.

The five hottest years since 1864 were all recorded after 2010.

The study says if urgent action is not taken now, average temperatures could be 7 degrees higher by 2100.

The hotter weather is already visible with retreating glaciers, warmer lakes and earlier budding trees.
