While average global temperature will still fluctuate from year to year, scientists focus on the decadal trend.
Nine of the 10 warmest years since 1880 have occurred since the year 2000, as the Earth has experienced sustained higher temperatures than in any decade during the 20th century. As greenhouse gas emissions and atmospheric carbon dioxide levels continue to rise, scientists expect the long-term temperature increase to continue as well.
Blah blah blah, Al Gore is fat and there’s been a cooling ‘trend’ and yada yada yada. Go Newt Go!

My first meal in San Francisco (ever, ever EVER!) was at Delarosa. The trendy yet casual restaurant in the Marina neighborhood was packed on a Saturday nite, but the hour long wait let us discover a very charming wine bar/store a few doors down.
The meal was delicious, and even with a glass of wine it clocked in under $40. There were so many great sounding dishes on the menu (chicken sausage, red grapes, and mustard!!) that I can’t wait to return and order a completely different dinner.
Mozzarella with garden veggies, Roman-style mushroom-fontina-thyme pizza, and the star, house-made donuts with a trio of dipping sauces (chocolate, raspberry andmascarpone cream).
Thousands of women massed in Tahrir Square here on Tuesday afternoon and marched to a journalists’ syndicate and back in a demonstration that grew by the minute into an extraordinary expression of anger at the treatment of women by the military police as they protested against continued military rule.
