Is the earth getting warmer, or cooler?...

This is a really interesting article about the discrepancy between reported global temperatures. I don't think anyone is suggesting that global warming isn't happening - it's just that over the next ten years or so a natural thermal cycle will probably make the world cooler. And it's odd that NASA and the Met Office seem to have disagreed since 1998 on whether we are actually getting warmer or cooler. And NASA seem to be adjusting their old temperature figures down and their recent figures up. Very strange at a time when we need accurate information.
