That is factually incorrect. Average global temperatures ARE up. An indisputable fact.
There really is no doubt at this point.
Never said there was. Why do you have such trouble parsing?

Only the somewhat baffling obstinance of people like you. It, frankly, is willful ignorance.
And I would say that you are the one who is willfully ignorant. Why?
Because you deliberately mischaracterize what I say.
I have never said that temperatures are not up. This is a lie on your part.

In fact I said The 5yr average at the end of 2005 was .26°C higher than at the beginning of 1990. Divide that out and you get .162°C per decade.
That is at the absolute bottom of the range predicted by the IPCC, but they continued on as if it were right smack dab in the middle saying observed values of about 0.2°C per decade, strengthening confidence in near-term projections.
It is clear overstatement.
