Despite the absence of an El Niño, 2012 ranked 8th warmest on record. Through June, 2013 ranks 6th warmest. June 2013 was the 2nd warmest June on record with an anomaly of +0.67°C above the 1951-80 baseline. Only June 1998 was warmer with an anomaly of +0.74°C.

Page 33 says the TSI is about 0.6 W/m^2 greater (0.25%), my graph above shows about 0.4 W/m^2. Like I said, more recent (and accurate) studies claim closer to a 0.24% increase.
I'll have to read it later.
Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.
Well, after reading the paper more closely, the 0.6 is different than what i thought. The change from a external TSI is in the range of 0.8 to 3 watt/m^2, or 0.06% to 0.22%.
