"By reducing our production of carbon dioxide, we risk hastening the advent of the next ice age. Even more foolhardy and dangerous is the Obama administration's announcement that they may try to cool the planet through geo-engineering. Such a move in the middle of a cooling trend could provoke the irreversible onset of an ice age."
He added, "Earth's climate is controlled by the Sun. In comparison, every other factor is trivial. The coldest part of the Little Ice Age during the latter half of the seventeenth century was marked by the nearly complete absence of sunspots. And the Sun now appears to be entering a new period of quiescence.

Looking at rather colorful picture it would show that the southern hemisphere isn't having the extreme heat I have been hearing about.
But big color pictures can just give the illusion of extremes, make them all shades of blue and it would look pretty cold, make it shades of red and it would look like we live on the sun.

Okay, most of the temperature data collection equipment is in urban areas(cities) where it is unnaturally warmer than the rural areas and uninhabited areas which of course make up the bulk of our planet. So the figures themselves are not an accurate representation of our planet's actual temperature.
