Don't be to hasty there, are you absolutely sure that everyone thinks so?As I'm sure everyone here is aware of global warming and it's issue.

There is no global warming. Period.
You can't find a real scientist anywhere in the world who can look you in the eye and, without hesitation, without clarification, without saying, kinda, mighta, sorta, if, and or but...say "yes, global warming is with us."
The mean temperature anomaly is up 0.6 °C since the mid-40s. If that isn't warming, what is? The question is whether this warming is natural, and supposed to be occurring, or if it's being caused or exacerbated by human influence; not whether it exists.
How do you suppose man measures temperature, if it is not with numbers? Stepping outside every morning and logging your opinion using adjectives?A number, based on a man-made mathematical construct.
Don't make your life depend on numbers too much
So what? It can either increase or decrease, like the local daily temperature change, but just much slower. It doesn't really matter. We will never stop to be worried about our mean value which we have defined and calculated. We will always scare, or lets say a part of us. I'm not a part of such scare communities.Forgetting the number, and whether or not it's a futile 'mathematical construct', the mean temperature anomaly has increased.
