Was 2016 really the hottest year on record?

A Jan. 16 front-page Daily Herald story reported that NASA and NOAA declared jointly that 2016 was the hottest year on record.
In actuality, climate change propagandists talk about the “hottest year” to distract us from the fact that their computer models are wrong by projecting a much warmer planet than real-world observations. The world simply failed to warm as they expected. Additionally, computer data is regularly adjusted by scientists playing fast and loose to assist in spinning the tale that Al Gore advanced in his documentary, “An Inconvenient Truth.”
Absent confirmation of the predictions made by Al Gore and other global warming propagandists, another narrative is called for. These facts are stubborn things to refute:
• Satellite measurements show the Earth has not experienced any significant warming since 1998
• Computer models project warming that has not occurred
• 1998 and 2015-2016 were times of naturally occurring El Niños
• If 2016 was “the warmest” year, it was so by insignificant hundredths of a degree
• The margin of error is actually a far larger one-tenth of a degree
• Temperature data adjustments by NASA and NOAA are highly suspect and not supported by satellites
• Ice, by the way, expanded in the South at the same time it retracted in the North, neither a “warming” event.
MIT climate scientist, Dr. Richard Lindzen, said of the “hottest year” claims: “The whole point is so crazy because the temperature is always going up or down a little. What is astonishing is that in the last 20 years it hasn’t done much of anything.”
