Can we really afford to hope that global warming is just a myth

To The Daily Sun,

I read the following in the March 7, 2014, issue of The Week magazine (page 16):

"Despite the snow and cold in much of the eastern and southern U.S., January 2014 was 1.17 degrees warmer than the 20th-century average for the planet as a whole. In fact, it was the fourth warmest January on record, dating back to 1880."

The same issue had a dissenting opinion by two scientists. I wonder if they read the little snippet above. Can we afford to hope that global warming is a myth?
