Since the GOP says this is not happening, I can only go by my own experience and my own experience is the places I have lived in the past have definitely definitely become hotter, especially Denver.
I've lived in Texas all my life, and we have summers with periods in the 100s all the time.

The sky isn't falling no matter how much you crave it.

Denver has changed less than 1 degree in over 140 years.....that's your brainwashing and imagination

Climate scientists now understand that the Medieval Warm Period was caused by an increase in solar radiation and a decrease in volcanic activity, which both promote warming. Other evidence suggests ocean circulation patterns shifted to bring warmer seawater into the North Atlantic, and affected the northern Hemisphere.

Today's warming is caused by rising CO2 in the atmosphere and affects the entire planet.
And there is no proof of that, just guesses.

What is the source for the data?

That does not appear to be a chart of the global temperature anomaly. The Roman Warm Period applied to Europe; the Medieval Warm Period applied to the North Atlantic. All this demonstrates is what has happened to Europe over time.

Are you confused? This thread is about global climate, not local weather records.

Its summer. It gets warm.

But dont forget that the earth heats and cools periodically.
