It's Getting Hot In Here!

 The planet is heating up and the folks over at RealClimate are doing a fantastic job of presenting the science involved in a clear and lucid fashion. There are too many sham sites designed to discredit the overwhelming scientific consensus confirming global warming is a clear and present danger to the survival of the human species. Global temperature 2013 is a excellent antidote to the toxic waste oozing from corporate PR factories.
The latest meme produced by the anti-science brigade states global warming stopped in 1998, they claim in the last 15 years there has been no higher global average temperature than that measured for the year 1998. Using graphs depicting data from the most sophisticated study of global temperatures ever undertaken we can see 1998 was not as hot as it gets, it has been hotter.

1998 was an El Niño year and during El Niño years the temperatures are generally higher than non-El Niño years. 2013 was not an El Niño year, yet during 2013 the average global temperature was higher than the record breaking temperatures recorded during the 1998 El Niño scorcher.
