In 1998, El Nino caused a warm weather spike. In 2015-6 another El Nino created another warm spike. That’s what weather does – it fluctuates.
Long-term climate trends are more significant.
We live in the autumn of the warm Holocene period within the Pleistocene Ice Age – an era of lethal ice separated by brief, warm, carbon-rich, life-supporting interludes. The long-term peak occurred 7,000 years ago – glacial winter lies ahead.
