Abstract: Based on the observed global and Chinese surface air temperature data, it is indicated that 2001-2010 is the warmest decade since the global-scale observations are available, though temperatures do not increase significantly within the last decade. It does not mean that the global warming has paused at all. Meanwhile, mean temperature of China for the same period is also the highest. Seasonal mean temperatures of China show that winter temperatures in Northeast and Xinjiang are lower in the last decade (2001-2010) than in the previous decade (1991-2000). It may attribute to the intensification of the Siberian high and East Asian winter monsoon. However, it will not overwhelm the general warming trend in China.

Key words: global warming, climate change, recent 100 years, Siberian high
