The Global Ocean Warming Rate Appears To Be 1°C per Century
I recomputed the warming rates with a starting point of Jan 1947 and the values stabilize at 1°C per century. This appears to be the current rate of global ocean warming as determined by least squares slope method.
As the length of the period for the least squares estimate increases the value becomes less sensitive to the fluctuations in the anomaly.
