Tho’ much is taken, much abides; and though
We are not now that strength which in old days
Moved earth and heaven; that which we are, we are;
One equal temper of heroic hearts,
Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will
To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.
- Alfred Lord Tennyson

Science should show its work
This tells you where it got the data.
If you're as suspicious of the data as I am - that the data do not account for Urban Heat Island, that adjustments are almost always in the positive direction, etc - then it's possible that the temperature has actually declined in the last 16 years.
