I just read an article by someone who still believes the world is doomed because of climate change and he made the claim that melt seasons were getting longer. He was correct if you used his start date of 1850, the bottom of the LITTLE ICE AGE. Clearly this is a trend of some statistical significance over a 5 year period. Couple that with an identifiable causal link with reduced Solar magnetic activity and you have the kind of relationship that has been absent from the CO2 climate signal.
