Reminder: According to satellite measurements, there has been no warming for more than 18 years

For those of you who don't understand the theory, the linchpin of the anthropogenic global warming theory is that the signature of man-made global warming is a warming of the mid-troposphere in the tropics. Got that? The beauty of this is, the global warming alarmists never talk about the mid-troposphere temperatures, because they don't control those measurements and so cannot adjust them, so they talk about surface temperatures, which they do control and which they manipulate all the time. So what do the temperatures they don't manipulate show? Yeah, about what you'd expect:
Since December 1996 there has been no global warming at all (Fig. 1). This month’s RSS temperature shows a sharp uptick to warmer worldwide weather than for two years, shortening the period without warming by a month to 18 years 2 months.
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 2 months since December 1996.
The hiatus period of 18 years 2 months, or 218 months, is the farthest back one can go in the RSS satellite temperature record and still show a sub-zero trend.
Just a reminder, kids, that the unaltered measurements contradict the altered temperatures. Guess which group gets the grant money? Yeah, the temperature-manipulators get billions a year from governments worldwide. Motive, much?
