China has a widespread network of temperature stations used by NASA.
Today we plot the NASA mean annual V4 unadjusted temperature data since 1997 for 18 stations situated in the northwest China Shinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region, shown in the map below (blue dots):
The plotted NASA data appear as follows:
No significant trends
The data show that 10 of 18 stations in this very rural region show zero warming or cooling! This defies the claims that climate change is global and unprecedented. The reality is that nothing unusual is happening.
333-year temperature reconstruction: warmer 250 years ago
That China is not warming is of course something that is not really new. Recently there was a study featuring a 333-year temperature reconstruction in the western mountains of China.
No warming there as well in well over 300 years.
7-10°C warmer 9000 years ago
Moreover, two recent papers show that Northeastern China was 7-10°C warmer 9000 years ago – and 1.7°C warmer in the 1800s! For example Liu et al, 2019:

Have a nice weekend everyone!
