Tx, there's no disagreement between NOAA and NASA scientists--they both believe that the last decade has been the warmest on record, and they agree with the broad consensus of climatologists (95%) that the causes are anthropogenic.
There is a concerted attempt now to confuse the public with the fact that global surface temperatures have been flat since 1998. Those devoted to this attempt, like one of the posters up here, will always insist that surface temperatures be measured from 1998--not 1997 or 1999, and never measuring the average rise in temperatures over a long period.
The reason is simple--1998 was the warmest year on record. Any measurements from that specific year are going to look flat. However, the warming trend is obvious if you measure from any other year.
Here's another link to NOAA that is inconvenient to those who deny climate change:

It seems that much of the dismissing climate change and global warming seems to be due to lobbying by the fossil fuel [petroleum] industry. And also by pushing the Keystone pipeline though.
A few posts back I posted a link to a YouTube video of James Hanson, the retired NASA scientist who was apparently attempted to be silence because of his warnings about global warming. It was interesting to listen to that video.
There is no doubt that over the millenium there has been both global warming and ice ages, but not as rapidly as has been happening in the past so many years.
