A reader asked for the actual rates at which various global temperature data sets (featured in this post) are increasing, after one removes the estimated impact of ENSO (the el Niño southern oscillation), volcanic eruptions, and solar variations.
I welcome such requests, but caution strongly that I can’t fill them all, or even most of them. It’s too much work. But in this case, it’s a pretty simple request and I’ll go for it.
Here are the warming rates for the 7 global temperature data sets from the aforementioned post. The first 5 are surface temperature, the last two are satellite-based estimates of TLT (Temperature in the Lower Troposphere).
The numbers are the rates themselves, the vertical bars are those rates plus or minus two standard deviations. Note that all values are in °C/century. I usually give rates in °C/year, but I thought the 100-year rates would be more familiar and meaningful for some readers.
Rates for surface temperature data cover the time span from 1970 through 2017; those for satellite-based troposphere temperature the period 1979 through 2017 (satellite data don’t begin until 1979).
