End Of El Nino & Global Cooling

Warmists have been quick to point out that the large drop in global temperatures since March is purely due to the end of El Nino.
Strange then that they were not saying the same thing about the large rise in temperatures after the onset of El Nino.
For instance, the Guardian reported back in March:
According to Professor Michael Mann, the director of Penn State Earth System Science Centre. He said it was possible to look back over the temperature records and assess the impact of an El Niño on global temperatures.
“A number of folks have done this,” he said, “and come to the conclusion it was responsible for less than 0.1C of the anomalous warmth….
Jeff Knight from the Met Office’s Hadley Centre, said their modelling set the additional heat from a big El Niño, like the current one, at about 0.2C.
According to HADCRUT4 (as shown in the Mail graph above), global land and ocean temperatures have now fallen by 0.48C since March.
RSS satellite temperatures show an even bigger drop of 0.60C.
And all of this has happened without the beginning yet of La Nina conditions.
If Mickey Mann really was right, we would now be rushing headlong into the next ice age.
Fortunately for humanity, Mickey is rarely right!
