A new record for warming? Oops I mean the usual new record year that happens every year these days. Oh but it was El Niño... Oh that's why! Oops I mean El Ninos are caused by seas grown too warm by climate change, so why do they keep mentioning El Niño?
They still try to deny the obvious, scientists included (some anyway)! They throw in El Niño as if it explained an anomaly. El Niño is part of global warming.
BTW ... They didn't feel the need to include the small detail that we are presently in a cooling period and that when it ends that temperatures will get even hotter faster. In effect that this new record's heat is actually being suppressed by other factors which will soon end.
Mentioning El Niño is a minor deception that tends to confuse more than it would appear to on the surface. It seems more that the scientists are unable to say just how bad it actually is openly but instead they continue to try and put a better face on it. Look it up>>> We are in a cooling period that will be ending relatively soon.
It is so bad that they are afraid to say how bad it really is straight out. Which is pretty bad if you ask me!!!
