By WUWT regular Just The Facts
I recently came across a January 21st, 2012 Peter Gleick article 2011 Climate Change in Pictures and Data: Just the Facts, which appears to mimic the format and approach of my January 1st, 2012 article A Big Picture Look At Earths Temperature.
What I find particularly amusing about Peters article is that a week after noting that, Lost in this verbal debate are often the simple facts and data of climate change and the immense and definitive global observations of the ways in which our climate is actually changing around us. Peter Gleick was perpetrating Fakegate. Why, if the simple facts and data support his viewpoint, would Peter resort to subterfuge and fakery?
If you read through Gleicks article, youll see some of his immense and definitive global observations, like anyone watching or reading the news or looking out the window probably had a sense that 2011 was a weird year with one bad, extreme weather disaster after another
Anyway, in honor Peters reinstatement as President of the Pacific Institute I figured that an update on the simple facts and data was in order.
Please note that WUWT cannot vouch for the accuracy of the data/graphics within this article, nor influence the format or form of any of the graphics, as they are all linked from third party sources and WUWT is simply an aggregator. You can view each graphic at its source by simply clicking on it.
Global Surface Temperatures:
Generally, when referring to Earths climate warming, proponents of the Catastrophic Anthropogenic Global Warming (CAGW) narrative, refer to Earths Surface Temperature, e.g. Global warming is the unusually rapid increase in Earths average surface temperature over the past century primarily due to the greenhouse gases released by people burning fossil fuels.

As such, heres NASAs Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) Monthly Mean Surface Temperature Anomaly 1996 to Present;
Hide the decline!
Why is this guy not behind bars at this point for being totally dishonest? He knows full well as how the data was modified to hide the recent global temperature declines.
