Heartless, no need to apply.

The man-made global warming - and the corresponding climate change - would not stop, but "is happening right before our eyes."

Warming has continued since 1997.

The trend is low because there was a super El Nino in 1998 (when the oceans out heat into the atmosphere), and 2011 was a strong La Nina year (when the oceans suck down heat).

Try comparing like with like.

A moderate El Nino year is now warmer than a super El Nino.

La Nina years are getting warmer.

The next moderate El Nino year will almost certainly bring record temperatures.

Remember what deniers have said previously:

Global cooling since 1998! Wrong.

No global warming since 1998! Wrong.

No significant warming since 1995! Wrong.

No warming since 1997! Wrong.

How many times do deniers have to be wrong before people realise they are talking out of their back ends.

Remember: deniers say warming has stopped; science says expect new record temperatures by mid decade if not earlier.

Where are temperatures today compared to where they would have been had the rate of global warming before 1997 continued until today?

What a perfect example of Leftist Loony Denial. They've been pandering one version, or another of this doomsday scenario since the Carter Administration. Insane people don't know they're insane.
