We are still warming, at an accelerated rate.

The only thing that explains all the data - is that humans burning fossil fuels is causing global warming.
It is making the ocean more acidic, and melting virtually all land ice, more and more quickly.
We see greater evaporation, which leads to more precipitation.
We are seeing a weakened and wobbly jet stream, which lets the cold air to far lower latitudes than we used to see, just a few decades ago.
Wildfires and tornadoes don't have a season, anymore.
Species extinction is far more rapid than any of the previous 5 major extinctions.
Ice harvests which was a huge business 100 years ago - is not even possible now.
Building codes that required footings a minimum of 4' below the surface, are not needed, as the ground barely freezes a few inches deep, and thaws to mud numerous times during the winter.

This was never a scientific conclusion - because we cleaned up our particulate pollution that was slowing the warming trend.

No, they are (still) correct. The formerly robust and strong polar vortex, is now wobbly and weakened, and the lobes or low and high pressure ridges are slow moving. This results in localized cold areas, and others that are warm, and the Arctic is much warmer than it used to be.

Arctic ice is melting more and more quickly. It was above freezing at the north pole - in complete darkness. That is crazy conditions.

Having no snow means a lot more, than just how it affects you and me.

Same for what happens in the Arctic - it affects the entire earth, and we all will be affected. Just because you can't see the Arctic from where you live, doesn't protect you from what is happening there.

If a butterfly flapping it's wings in China can change your weather, imagine when they start injecting tons of silver iodide into the cold air going over the Himalayas.
