Today, I decided to post the most recent long-term global, surface temperature data with trends.
I am including data from NASA GISS, NOAA, UKMET, JMA and Berkeley. Most of the official data go back as far as the mid- or late 1800s. All sources clearly show a distinct, global warming trend.
In addition, I also included the satellite measured global temperature data from the lower troposphere, which goes back to 1979. Courtesy Remote Sensing Systems.
Monthly global surface temperature anomalies. Clearly, the bulk of monthly warming has taken place after 1990.
Global temperature trend from 1880 to 1950.
Global temperature trend from 1950-2016 clearly shows an acceleration of the warming trend.
Actual long-term surface temperature trend versus the three emissions scenarios. Scenario A is the worst scenario followed by B then C. Based on the data, the globe seems to be running between scenario B and C over recent years.

Berkeley Earth shows excellent agreement among several databases, especially since 1950.

Global satellite measured trend of the lower troposphere since 1979. Anomalies are lower than surface temps due to a later base line and they are measuring the lower troposphere.

Data indicates that there has been a slight downward trend in the annual maximum extent of Great Lakes ice cover since the 1970s.
A new study concludes that global warming may eventually be twice as warm as what current climate model consensus indicates.
The increased use of air conditioning in a warming world may lead to a significant degradation of air quality in the eastern U.S. by mid-century.
Dr. James Hansen's climate model projections from the 1980s have been mostly on target.
May 2018 and the spring of 2018 both ranked in the top five warmest on record.
Rate of ice loss in Antarctica has tripled over the past decade.
A combination of a warming climate climate and increased urbanization (heat island effect) has caused a 25 to 50 percent decrease in low cloud cover in the greater Los Angeles area since the 1970s.
