On the other Hiatus.....

If anybody wants to claim global warming stopped 17 years ago, they had better be able to explain the following:
 Fitted trends using GISTEMP 
1970 to 1997:  0.146 +/- 0.067 C/decade (2 sigma)
1970 to 2014:  0.163 +/- 0.031  C/decade 
Even if I "cherry-pick" the warmest month in 1997-1998 as the supposed inflection point (Feb. 1998), this is what emerges
1970 to 1998.2:  0.156 +/- 0.063 C/decade 2 sigma
If the warming "stopped" why has the rate of warming increased if I add the last 17 years in?
