Anyways, USGS & NOAA have been caught faking the temperature statistics again and again. There's really no reason for a common person to believe anything they have to say.
You guys are missing the point... Global warming is probbly the least biggest concern about our current level of burning fossil fuels. A few tempatures rise here and there isn't going to be the worst thing in the world, it's going to suck for some people on the coast and some ecosystems but as a whole it's not going to be that bad, BUT the global warming isn't the real issue it's the posion from
Tailpipe emissions: This is what most people think of when they think of vehicle air pollution; the products of burning fuel in the vehicle's engine, emitted from the vehicle's exhaust system. The major pollutants emitted include:
Hydrocarbons: this class is made up of unburned or partially burned fuel, and is a major contributor to urban smog, as well as being toxic. They can cause liver damage and even cancer.
Nitrogen oxides (NOx): These are generated when nitrogen in the air reacts with oxygen under the high temperature and pressure conditions inside the engine. NOx emissions contribute to both smog and acid rain.
Carbon monoxide (CO): a product of incomplete combustion, carbon monoxide reduces the blood's ability to carry oxygen and is dangerous to people with heart disease.
Carbon dioxide (CO2): Emissions of carbon dioxide are an increasing concern as its role in global warming as a greenhouse gas has become more apparent.
Particulates. Particle of micrometre size.
Sulphur oxide (SOx) General term for oxides of sulphur, mostly sulfur dioxide and some sulfur trioxide, from coal or unrefined oil.

A few tempture changes here and there arn't the real problem, the problem is that these chemicals are released into our world that damages the planets life and our world can handle some of them and others cause problems. Alll you have to do is fucking look at smog, i mean you people who are buyin into the oil companies misinformation campain can question a few tempatures here and there and doubt global warming, but you cannot just close your eyes and ignore things like smog, and acid rain, and say that there's no danger in doing that for the next 100 years. it's just ignorance to think that.
the bottom line is that ciggarettes cause cancer no matter what misinfomation tabacco companies said..
and Our current burning/use /abuse of fossil fuels is harming the planet. Dispite misinformation by oil companies.
