Since both have some possible issues early in the records, this plot from 1970 should be the more accurate portion of the record. There is a trend where the land portion is warming greater than the oceans. That is ancient history, no news there.
Moving into the satellite era, this chart compares the Northern extent, Southern extent and Tropical regions of the University of Alabama, Huntsville, MSU lower troposphere data. This is a bit messy, but the southern extent has a negative trend while both the Northern extent and to a greater degree the Tropics have positive trends.
What about variance?
Those two charts don't jive with GHE expectations.
