This is a tale of many plots. nooa doesn't make an 'official' plot, like the others. They let you create your own for plausible deniability. The first is their standard plot of months. It's good for areas with seasons, but meaningless for world plots.
Although we have the lowest temperature of the current warming cycle, they will say something like 'Fifth warmest December'.
This is the 'naked' all months plot, and shows we are going way down.
This is the year-end Haywood plot and shows we are a submarine under everything else. No matter what the plots show, we will get the 'look how we are warming up' spin from the PR department. That's what they are paid to do.
