Is Honiara Heating Up?

I want to thank my friend Mr. LUWII from the far east for his views on the above issue.

Few comments though. Firstly, I am not a climate change expert or advisor as stated by my friend.Secondly, my answer to the above captioned question is 'NO' given the weather features which were present at that time.

I do agree with Mr. LUWII on the the rise in average temperature BUT this is the longterm average. My friend seems to confuse himself with the monthly, annual and the LONG TERM averages. In fact, I did mentioned that there is an increasing trend in the temperature for Solomon Islands if you consider the longterm average. So I'm not sure what I "fail miserably to acknowledge" as cited by my friend.
