Regional Temperatures Rose as Aerosol Masking Declined

According to a paper in the 29 December 2020 issue of the peer-reviewed journal Geophysical Research Letters, temperatures around the world increased as a result of regional reductions in aerosol masking. Fortunately, increased temperatures occurred at different times in different regions, as I suspected would occur. No significant increase in global-average temperature occurred as a result of this region-by-region loss in aerosol masking leading to increases in temperature.
