It's no longer "global warming"

It's been a while since the pundits & the media have used the term "global warming". They cunningly switched to the term "climate change" a while ago.
And a good thing too, because with last year's miserable summer, and all the rain we're having right now anyone mentioning global warming will get lynched.
In today's Telegraph "Climate experts predict temperature drop"
He said it was likely that the La Nina phenomenon would continue into the summer. If his forecast is right it would mean temperatures have not risen globally since 1998 when El Nino warmed the world.

Sort it out guys, is it El Nino causing the warming, or us?

And the phrase "temperatures have not risen globally since 1998" kind of gives the idea that temperatures haven't dropped either.
However, it seems temperatures peaked in 1998 and have been dropping ever since.

*snickers* One of my California friends is a physicist who studies the ocean - a physical oceanographer. He calls it climate change because while it's true that the trend is towards the increase, you can't really tell what'll happen or how, exactly, it will happen.

So, in France, if this one current shuts down, y'all might actually get cooler weather for the next couple of hundred years. ;)
