Personally I think that the concept that there is a average tempurature that the earth should be at is a fabrication. The Earth's tempurature is governed mostly (as in 99.9999~%) by the distance of the Earth from the Sun and the power output of the Sun.
And the Sun is not a constant steady power source. As it varies so does the Earth's tempurature. As seen by sun spot activity the Sun has much more magnetic activity and thusly indicates a higher rate of activity then what was present just a few decades ago. This higher rate of activity probably coincides with a slightly higher radiation output. Of course then the tempurature of the earth is going to change slightly due to this.
There were times in not-to-distant (geologically speaking) past were the Earth's tempurature was much higher then it is now. And there was different times when it was much lower. And there were times marked by high tempurature fluctuations. Now none of those times had humans ever had any impact on the earth's climate. So since it's been much hotter and much colder and none of that had to do anything with us... The idea that cars or jets or even powerplants are causing world-wide change is kinda suspect.
but that doesn't have anything to do with my opinion of Ubuntu. I can be absolutely right about one and wrong about the other. Or right about both, or wrong about both. There is no relationship between the two..
Although now that I think about it.. I do prefer Debian so that may be part of the issue. :-)
