The satellite data has been well established for some time. Yes, if one looks at data from 1998 to present using one of the satellite data sets, a case can be made that there has been “no warming.” However when one looks at the entire data set there is a clear upward trend that continues today.
With respect to the pause — or hiatus — this is the subject of some debate in the scientific community. The general view seems to be that warming slowed in the 2000s, but now appears to be increasing upward again. In fact, 2015 is very likely to be the warmest year on record.
