Just another isolated instance (of a horrifying trend)

Time for another round of ... hey the artic is opening up for oil exploration articles in the Wall Street Journal.
The average temperature for 2012 was 55.3 degrees Fahrenheit, 3.2 degrees above normal and a full degree higher than the previous warmest year recorded -- 1998 -- NOAA said in its report Tuesday. All 48 states in the contiguous U.S. had above-average annual temperatures last year, including 19 that broke annual records, from Connecticut through Utah.
Another record year here and around the globe.
Each year since 2001 has been among the warmest on record worldwide
Damn you Al Gore.
The temperature forecast for next Monday by Australia's Bureau of Meteorology is so unprecedented - over 52C - that it has had to add a new colour to the top of its scale, a suitably incandescent purple.
Yeah, but where are the real world effects?
A record-breaking heatwave and high winds across south-eastern Australia have produced some of the worst fire conditions seen in the country, with blazes destroying thousands of hectares of land (video) and threatening properties, but – so far – sparing lives.

the earth is coming out of an ice age (one of many over billions of years). why is it surprising that it is heating up and will continue to heat up for the next few hundred thousand years before it starts cooling again ?

i'm confused what al gore or humans have to do with the earth MASSIVELY cooling/heating as it has done for 4 billion years ?

Temp on the courts yesterday at the Sydney International hit 105-degrees, prompting players to complain it was just too damn hot to play, or even to sit in the stands and watch.

That wasn’t even the hottest part of the day. Temperatures climbed to 106.5 degrees later, leaving players battling the heat and each other in a virtually empty stadium, as fans sought shelter from the sun.
