NASA scientists expect more rapid global warming in the very near future (part 2)

we saw that NASA scientists James Hansen, Reto Ruedy, Makiko Sato and Kwok-Wai Ken Lo from the Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) have released an analysis of global temperature in 2011, and looked at future prospects . Reviewing the evidence, the authors concluded that rapid global warming is likely in the next few years. This is not a new phenomenon, but simply a reflection of natural variability, cool (La Niña ) and warm (El Niño ) phases which still exert a temporary cooling/warming influence on global surface temperatures even in the presence of a persistent global warming trend.
