So since 2015 was by far the hottest year ever recorded things are going exactly as expected. The so-called “hiatus” never happened. The heat was being stored in the oceans and as the winds and currents change it is being released.
A .23 degree rise in temperature makes the 2° limit on temperature rise look unobtainable at this point.
Earth’s 2015 surface temperatures were the warmest since modern record keeping began in 1880, according to independent analyses by NASA and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). 2015 was the warmest year since modern record-keeping began in 1880, according to a new analysis by NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies. The record-breaking year continues a long-term warming trend — 15 of the 16 warmest years on record have now occurred since 2001.

Only once before, in 1998, has the new record been greater than the old record by this much.
