The past 30 years has seen more "hot" (orange), "very hot" (red) and "extremely hot" (brown) summers, compared to a base period defined in this study from 1951 to 1980  (Source: NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center Scientific Visualization Studio)
Hotter summers have become the norm from 1980 to present compared to 1951 to 1980 (the base period)

Satellite sea surface temperature measurements since the mid-1960s show essentially zero average global temperature change. That's a fact, and you can look it up.

Um, it would be ignorat to claim there has been no warming up - understanding how this fits with sea water temperature remaining the same is a matter of elementary school physics. As any material changes phase (say from solid into liquid), vast amounts of energy are expended on this change. It is a fact that polar ice has been diminishing (= changing state from solid to liquid, thereby absorbing the heat - this prevents water temperature in the region from going up until all the ice is expended).

Now this needn't be the result of man-made "global warming", but it is nevertheless happening (and has been happening ever since the last Ice Age, which clearly wasn't perpetuated by humanity's use of fossil fuels, unless of course the Ice Age cavemen drove around in V8 pickup trucks and their vast cattle herds farted up huge clouds of methane ...).
