And you've been keeping records for how many years?

This is the typical naysayer argument against global warming. "There's
no verifiable climatic change since records have been kept." Well,
records haven't been around very long. So what's your point?

The reality remains: the decade of the 1990s has been the warmest on
record. Disagree if you like, but it doesn't change the facts.
