    Because we keep putting greenhouse gases into it, of course. It's truly frightening how these dodos can't accept the evidence that's in front of everyone. Mike says "They keep  adjusting it up...", but there are MULTIPLE, independent organizations that put out global surface temperature, and they all show the same thing.  If it were being faked somehow, why wouldn't fossil fuel companies fund their own global surface temperature that wasn't "faked"? It would clearly be in their interest, but of course they don't because they can't--every legitimate global surface temperature measure shows the same thing--even the one that funded by the Koch Brothers.

    Horse puts up a cartoon (not a graph) of only Northern Hemisphere surface temperature and doesn't even seem to understand that he hasn't refuted the question at all.

    JimZ babbles about what nice times we live in and how the stock market is doing.  Why can't he answer your scientific question? Why doesn't he EVER give a science-based answer? I think the guy must have studied science under Plato, it's as if he thinks observations mean nothing.

    Most of the other answers are just sock puppets of Horse--he even has a photo of a sock puppet in one of his "answers"!

    'on record'   And how long in terms of geological time does the record of  El Nino temperatures extend I wonder...   

    • Prior warming is irrelevant to now, as humanity has flourished during a time of reasonable global conditions. The warming is happening far faster that previous events.

    climate alarmists would have you believe the earth is getting warmer. The truth is there have been many times in history that the earth  has been warmer than it is now

      Earth is getting warmer, and most of the recent warming is caused by humans. Sure, the Earth might have been warmer millions of years ago, so what? Now WE are living on the Earth and our infrastructure is designed for 20th century climate.  Changing that will be enormously expensive and dangerous

    Nope.  It was warmer in the Middle Ages and a prior period.

    The stock market keeps going up too in spite of the shrill cries of doom from the usual suspects.  The stock market goes up and the climate becomes nicer... it's a win win.  It has been getting nicer for over 200 years now.  Aren't we lucky to live in these beautiful prosperous times unless you are a dumbcluck leftist, and you hate prosperity.

    I guess all those calls from "environmentalists" in the 1970s about "imminent global cooling" were wrong.....and we shouldn't have done all those things they encouraged to "save trees" by replacing paper products with plastics....

    ....guess we should have been a little more thoughtful and not-so-believing just because they claimed to have "science" on their side..... huh?

    The planet has warmed and cooled throughout the earths entire history . At no time have we had a static climate or weather .

    There was a time the dinosaurs were saying " Dude ! seems to be getting colder every year , What gives ? "

    It's organic .

    Even if this fake news is true you can't prove it is anthropogenic. Therefore, you're alarmism is easily dismissed.
