Not much to worry about.

  1. It says: “Since the high point back in 1998, global warming has run out of steam”. When I calculate the trend in the UAH data set since 1998, I get .108 C warming per decade.

    I’m not surprised that there’s no warming trend since 2014, because we had the strongest el Niño on record from 2014 through 2016. We’ve been in a la Niña since 2020. That lack of warming is just the ENSO (el Niño/la Niña) cycle.

    The trend from November 2007 to today .299 C warming per decade. That date is cherry picked, but so is October 2014 (the starting date of the date range their claim is based on). There are lots of hills, mesas and valleys in the data because of the ENSO cycle and natural randomness. Cherry picked trends will only show you what the person who is picking the dates wants you to see.

    The most important thing to consider is that there is a warming trend for any starting date before mid-2014 to today.

    It seems odd to me that none of the Daily Skeptic’s readers was skeptical about the claims the article makes.
