Is it just me, or is it getting hot in here?

All that talk about the earth cooling over the last several years can now be put to rest.  NASA just released the latest data for November, and it makes the period from Dec 09 - Nov 10 the hottest ever recorded.  It's hotter than 1998, 2005, 2003 and every other year in the 130 year history of NASA's records.

The ice is getting thinner and less extensive over the poles. The glaciers are receding from the mountain ranges.  Methane is apparently leaking from the permafrost and shallow seabeds at a much higher rate.  Our CO2 emmisions continue to grow nearly unabated. 

But, of course, it can't be humans causing it all!  It must be the sun (or not).  Or El Nino (or not).  Or something else (or not).

Methane in permafrost and at bottom of oceans can be a huge deal.

I saw some videos of scientists and catching methane from permafrost on fire.
