Even with oceans taking most of the heat, the surface temperatures are heading toward 2014 being the hottest year in recorded history. This is the first year ever of the methane blowhole phenomenon (16 of them from smaller to very large and deep). The methane monitoring org has more coming out of the oceans at this time and tundras rapidly catching up, especially with the huge spikes caused by the blowholes.
By the 2030s every year will be a new record, until there is no one left to report, except perhaps those in underground fortresses. Those underground forts will not outlast a Permian style or worse extinction we are heading for. They would last and become the seed of humanity, if we blow Yellowstone for a geologic bottleneck and cool down to late interglacial norm.

Whether there is going to be this big methane blowout in the future remains to be seen. But here graphed out is the rise of various ghgs since roughly 1975. Methane seems to have accelerated the fastest during the early decades.

Gosh, this must be a mistake!!!
We just had the hottest August ever
By Amelia Urry
18 Sep 2014 4:56 PM "On the tails of the hottest May, one of the worst droughts in U.S. history, some of the earliest big hurricanes ever, and just generally one of the weirdest years of extremes, we now have the hottest August on record. NOAA announced that the global temperature average for August 2014 was 61 degrees Fahrenheit. Now that’s no sauna — what do you expect, it’s already PSL-season and half the planet is still shivering through a sub-equatorial winter — but it seems especially toasty when you realize that average includes both land and sea temperatures. In fact, this was the hottest month in the oceans EVER."
