Abstract Issues related to the pause of global warming in the last decade are reviewed. It is indicated that: (1) The decade of 1999-2008 is still the warmest of the last 30 years, though the global temperature increment is near zero; (2) Natural factors such as volcanism, solar radiation, ENSO, and thermohaline circulation can have impact on the inter-annual and inter-decadal variability of global mean temperatures. However, it will not mask the global warming trend for a long time; (3) Temperatures of China continue to increase in 1999?2008 with an increment of 0.4-0.5°C per 10 years.
