The record shows no trend. Even the long warming fromt he Little Ice Age has stopped.
What is the warmer claim, well they torture the data and slice and dice the surface record–looking for confirmation.
The actual length of time for stable temps is 18 years 7 months.
Here’s Monckton’s take.
A new record ‘Pause’ length: No global warming for 18 years 7 months – Satellite Temperature standstill extends to 223 months
‘For 223 months, since January 1997, there has been no global warming at all. This month’s RSS (Remote Sensing Systems) temperature shows the Pause setting a new record at 18 years 7 months.’

The Pause draws blood
A new record Pause length: no warming for 18 years 7 months
By Christopher Monckton of Brenchley
For 223 months, since January 1997, there has been no global warming at all (Fig. 1). This month’s RSS temperature shows the Pause setting a new record at 18 years 7 months.
It is becoming ever more likely that the temperature increase that usually accompanies an el Niño will begin to shorten the Pause somewhat, just in time for the Paris climate summit, though a subsequent La Niña would be likely to bring about a resumption and perhaps even a lengthening of the Pause.
Figure 1. The least-squares linear-regression trend on the RSS satellite monthly global mean surface temperature anomaly dataset shows no global warming for 18 years 7 months since January 1997.
The hiatus period of 18 years 7 months is the farthest back one can go in the RSS satellite temperature record and still show a sub-zero trend. The start date is not cherry-picked: it is calculated. And the graph does not mean there is no such thing as global warming. Going back further shows a small warming rate.
The Pause has now drawn blood. In the run-up to the world-government “climate” conference in Paris this December, the failure of the world to warm at all for well over half the satellite record has provoked the climate extremists to resort to desperate measures to try to do away with the Pause.
