Yep. Warming is going at just under 0.2C per decade, and we're at just over 1.1C above pre-industrial now. So in 5 years, you'd expect the planet to have warmed a futher 0.1C and be at more than 1.2C above pre-industrial.

In two decades (around 2040) we'd expect a little under 0.4C of further warming, putting us pretty much at 1.5C above pre-industrial.


The trend has been remarkably steady for the last 40 years, and yet you seem constantly surprised by data that shows us tracking along that well-established rate of warming, or projections that it will continue.
