Following is a portion of the NOAA global climate report for 2014. The big feature for last year was that, for the world as a whole, the year 2014 was the warmest on record. The world temperature surpassed 1998--so much for the opinion that global warming has backed off in the past 16 years. Yes, it was cooler than average in North America--but many other locations around the world went far above their normals. And, the biggest warming trend is the Arctic. The trend there is in the category of "leaping" beyond the normals.
