The map above shows the range of global temperatures at different latitudes in 11 year windows starting in 1948-1958 ending in 2008-2018.
Anything to the left of the black line is cooler than the 1961-1990 average at that latitude and anything to the right is warmer.
The data source is the UK Met Office’s HADCRUT4 data set.

Antarctica is still getting colder.

Interesting to note the biggest by far warming occurs in the latitudes where the political bias to promote it is strongest.
At first glance I would rather say, rise of temperature is in relation to the distribution of land and sea in the respective latitude. Do not think, heated debates are responsible for that. Maybe heated debates are incited by the fact, that people a) notice the effects easier than in other regions b) have generally a high level of education, the necessary level of personal wealth, freedom, spare time and the means to express their opinion and communicate their observations?
