‘In fact “global” warming since June 1998 is limited to that part of the globe north of 20 degrees North.’
The complete UAH v6.0 data for May were released on today. I present all the graphs for various regions, and as well summaries for easier comparison. The Pause still refuses to go away, despite all expectations.
These graphs show the furthest back one can go to show a zero or negative trend (less than 0.1 +/-0.1C per 100 years) in lower tropospheric temperatures. I calculate 12 month running means to remove the small possibility of seasonal autocorrelation in the monthly anomalies. Note: The satellite record commences in December 1978- now 37 years and 6 months long- 450 months. 12 month running means commence in November 1979. The y-axes in the graphs below are at December 1978, so the vertical gridlines denote Decembers. The final plotted points are May 2016.

The 12 month mean to May 2016 is +0.46C. The Pause is still an embarrassing reality! However, it may “disappear” soon…
