Regional undusting supersedes global warming

In this dose of peer-reviewed realistic climatological literature, we look to Science magazine:
The role of aerosols in the evolution of tropical North Atlantic ocean temperature anomalies
They construct a model, adjust it using the satellite data, and determine that 67-69 percent of the North Atlantic warming in the last 26 years occurred as a response of the mixed layer to changes in the regional concentration of aerosols.

The authors, Amato T. Evan, Daniel J. Vimont, Andrew K. Heidinger, James P. Kossin, and Ralf Bennartz are from Wisconsin. See also a Reuters story and Science Centric.
