Global warming does not just take into account the land-surface temperature changes, but also the ocean temperature changes.
The ratio of global heating going into the oceans versus the land, atmosphere and ice has steadily increased over the past 40 years.

Keep in mind, the oceans make up 71 percent of the Earth's surface and a vast majority of the recent warming has been going into the oceans.
