Yeah, that is the real data for the global temperature since 1980. That big spike in 1998? El Nino. (via Real Science from WoodForTrees). Meanwhile, CFACT has a billboard campaign going that shows no change in the global temperature since 1997, using HADCrut4 data.
Oh, and just to head the Warmists off at the pass, yes, the global temp is still higher than it was in 1980. That’s what happens during warm periods in the Holocene. It was still warmer in the 1930′s, and really, we’re talking about an increase of .4 Celsius, not exactly planet boiling, eh?
