It's not melting

Tyler, Texas (KETK) — Here we are with snow in the Pacific Northwest and already recovering from a wintry burst of weather across the country a few weeks back.
Heck, last week in Cairo it snowed for the first time in a century. So, has anyone heard from Al Gore and all his folks?
I'm not trying to be ridiculous, but I think the panic crowd was ridiculous for years. Every time there was a warmer year and there were fewer winter events, we'd hear, "See, see, the Earth is melting."
Now, that it's the other way, I'm not hearing anything. It was December, five years ago, when Gore said the north polar ice cap would be gone and we'd be in a mess. I think Ed Begley and Ted Dansen, the actors, also said by now we'd be swimming with the fishes. Right now, no one is swimming.
Steven Goddard is reporting this under the banner of real science:
2013 will finish one of the ten coldest years in U.S. history, with the largest drop in temperature. Before NASA and NOAA start tampering with the data, 2013 is one of the ten coldest years in the U.S. since 1895 and has had the largest year over year decline on record. NOAA of course won't talk about this and they will massively tamper with the data before releasing it.
These are his words, not mine, but I don't doubt it.
He also says NOAA will be reporting something very different, because they subtract up to 1.7 degrees from older temperatures. Essentially all reported U.S. warming is due to a hockey stick of temperature adjustments, which makes the past appear to be much colder than what the thermometers measured at the time.
We've only been studying weather and climate for 150 years. There is so much more we need to know before we start ringing alarms.
That's my point of view ,what's yours?
