Recorded temperature decreases in the 1950-70s as a result of man-made aerosol and sulfer emissions after WWII. Slowed due to air pollution laws that limited their emissions in the 80s and 90s, but also because of warming effect of CO2 (emitted at the same time) which takes longer to kick in.
Now that we have reduced SO2 emissions, but a lot more CO2 emissions, the global cooling is over-run by global warming.
