Global warming has ended! Hooray! Of course, if you look at the data behind that article, you might reach different conclusions:

Sure, there was a spike in 1998, but I wouldn't say it's trending down since then.

It is true that soot reduces temperature, so a lot of pollution reduction doesn't reduce global warming. We can always reduce the temperature with a nuclear winter if we feel like it. (It also seems possible that soot from WWII had something to do with the temperature drop during that time?)
