There is some confusion about the rate of global warming that should be set straight. Increasingly a message is being heard that "global warming is slowing down" or even that it is coming to an end.
Some who talk about this probably do so out of honest confusion, for some it may be wishful thinking, but for a certain group it is part of the intentional disinformation perhaps better known as propoganda. It is time to clarify for some, and expose the lie for others.
This temperature chart of global land temperature anomalies (variations from the normal) tells the story quite clearly. It covers almost four decades, a good representative sample.
The claims about the slow down in warming, even suggesting that the warming has ended, choose a selection of years that fits the story they want to tell, often looking at a recent seven year or seventeen year pattern to show a flat line, or even decline. In fact there are six blue lines on this chart, highlighting brief select sets of years, that can each be used to show a flat or even slight cooling periond.
