Do not be fooled. In the grand-scheme of things the climate is getting warmer as part of its regular cycle. At least warmer than we, as modern humans, have been accustom to for the last 13,000 years. Orbital procession as a result of our planet's eccentricity will increase the temperatures of both summer and winter for the next 13,000 years, until it begins to cool off after another 13,000 years. In other words, 26,000 year cycles, a.k.a. Milankovitch cycles.

The planet will gradually get warmer over the course of the next 5,000 years or so, and there is not a damn thing we can do about it other than learn to adapt.
