Regarding the planet's warming since 1979, WuLong claimed "There was an apparent one-time step function."
I would not call this a one time step function. Not at all.

Hey, Ben, happy balloon day!

If one looks at RSS satellite data, the trend from 1979 to 1994 is only 0.03°C/decade, a slope which is not significantly different from zero. Similarly, the TLT trend over the last 17 years is not significantly different from zero. Hence, a 'step function' in the mid '90s.
