After viewing the video I deleted the comment and posted the following message:

" "One of the most common misunderstandings amongst climate "skeptics" is the difference between short-term noise and long-term signal. In fact, "it hasn't warmed since 1998" is ninth on the list of most-used climate myths, and "it's cooling" is fifth.
"This myth stems from a lack of understanding of exactly what global warming is. The term refers to the long-term warming of the global climate, usually measured over a timescale of about 30 years, as defined by the World Meteorological Organization. This is because global warming is caused by a global energy imbalance - something causing the Earth to retain more heat, such as an increase in solar radiation reaching the surface, or an increased greenhouse effect."
"Right now we're in the midst of a period where most short-term effects are acting in the cooling direction, dampening global warming. Many climate "skeptics" are trying to capitalize on this dampening, trying to argue that this time global warming has stopped, even though it didn't stop after the global warming "pauses" in 1973 to 1980, 1980 to 1988, 1988 to 1995, 1995 to 2001, or 1998 to 2005 (Figure 1). …"
"I’m looking at the temperature record as read from this central Greenland ice core. It gives us about as close as we can come to a direct, experimental measurement of temperature at that one spot for the past 50,000 years. As far as I know, the data are not adjusted according to any fancy computer climate model or anything else like that."
Please think about what this character has done, the Greenland Ice Cores go back hundreds of thousands of years! This line of argument is a complete fraud - we are concerned about the impacts of manmade greenhouse gases that have been building for the past couple hundred years, first slow but at an ever quickening pace.
Climatologists have long known about historic fluctuations - way more than these dilettantes who have never studied any of this full-time. The real issue here is the last hundred years. There is overwhelming evidence that humans have become a major "driver" of warming our planet - the physics is clear - what happened pre-industrial society is simply another cynical distraction intent on misleading people.
Of course, if you refuse to look at any of the authoritiative scientific information you'll never know.
It really is a question of political agenda over intellectual integrity… the evidence is out there!
Since the video never did review what these graphs were about, here's a short overview with links to further information .
