If you take out the El Nino years of 1997 and 1998 the rend is still for warming.
Those 2 years alone threw the 20 to 30 year trend off.
Of course deniers will cherry pick any info they want to prove their point.
Take a look at the trends over the last 20 centuries and you'll see that yes indeed, in spite of the last 20 to 30 years the earth is in fact, warming.
Given the time frames involved I won't be here when the "tipping point" is reached and I don't give a darn as to whether it's man made or not - global warming and cooling happen.
