It's Been Warmer Lately

"The warmest year in the 1860 to present record occurred in 1998, according to records maintained by Members of the World Meteorological Organization (WMO). Nine of the 10 warmest years have occurred since 1990, and the global average surface temperature in 2001 was the second warmest on record." (Excerpt from the article "Greenhouse Gases Linked to Stronger El Nino Events," on the Environmental News Service web site, Feb. 22, '09)
