Plain Vanilla Troposphere
The yellow linear regression is 0.0014C per year of 0.01C per decade difference in the trends of the two products. I can live with that. The blue linear regression is 0.0168C per year or 0.168C per decade. That is the rate the USA Plain Vanilla Troposphere has been warming since 1980.
That is a little higher than the 0.155C per decade that Anthony Watts gets with the new high quality surface stations. Again, it is close enough for government work in my opinion.
