Over and over and over we have heard in various media, like a broken
record, that since 1998, which was an unusually warm year due to a super El
Nino, anthropogenic global warming has leveled or stopped, as atmospheric
CO2 levels have continued to increase, from those casting doubt on the
science supporting AGW theory and supporting empirical data.

However, consider the following analysis of the global average surface
temperature trend, from the Goddard Institute for Space Studies, looking at
the trend from 1970-2014 under the heading "No significant change in trend
from 1998."  Consider that to start an analysis of long term trend at 1998,
not decades earlier, is cherry picking data to arrive at the conclusion

current director of the Goddard Institute for Space Studies, Gavin
Schmidt.  The entire posting is fascinating, though technically daunting.
