If you want some statistics to prove that climate change is real, here's one for you:
6 of the top 10 hottest global average temperatures have been the past 6 years.
8 of the top 10 hottest global average temperatures have been since 2009.
9 of the top 10 hottest global average temperatures have been since 2005.
This only goes back 41 years since we didn't track global temperatures before then. Whether you believe the climate models or not, you can't argue with these numbers.

Even more interesting, is that the article says that "new research shows the Earth was actually in a global warming "hiatus" that is about to end. And when it does, natural factors are likely to help an already warming planet get even hotter over the next four years, according to a new forecasting model."
If that's true, then we are in for quite a change over the next few years! It'll be like when you go from a colder than usual period during late spring straight into a hotter than usual period. Yikes!
Here are some more numbers from a link in the article talking about hot hot 2018 has been:
In the past two weeks, from California to Oman to Siberia, temperatures have soared, shattering records. Here's just a small sample:
Death Valley National Park, Calif.: 52 C (July 8)
Ouargla, Algeria: The highest reliable recorded temperature of 51 C (July 5)
Northern Siberia: Consecutive days with forecast above 30 C (July 9–16)
Chino, Calif.: Daytime record of 48.9 C (July 7)
Tajimi, Japan: Record-setting temperature of 40.7 (July 17)
The good news? This isn't anything climatologists didn't expect.
