The U.K. may have had its warmest year on record in 2022 (at least, according to the Met Office's frequently adjusted data),
Christopher Monckton writes about the inconvenient data at Watts Up With That? (The New Pause lengthens - 100 Months with No Warming At All):
The cold weather on both sides of the Atlantic last month seems to have had its effect on temperature, which fell sharply compared with November, lengthening the New Pause to eight years and four months, as measured by the satellites designed, built, and operated by Dr. Roy Spencer and Dr. John Christy at the University of Alabama in Huntsville.
The graph shows the least-squares linear-regression trend on the monthly global mean lower-troposphere anomalies.
The least-squares method was recommended by Professor (Phil) Jones of the University of East Anglia as a reasonable method of showing the trend on stochastic temperature data.
Recall that the Pause graph does not constitute a prediction:
As always, here is the full 45-year UAH dataset from December 1978 to December 2022, showing a far from dramatic global warming trend equivalent to just 0.134°C per decade:
With carbon dioxide emissions climbing ever higher, the lack of warming for approaching a decade does not exactly instill confidence in the models that claim CO2 is the 'climate control knob' that keeps the temperature going 'up and up'...
