Warming on the plateau

From the abstract of an article looking at the changing climate on the Tibetan Plateau (TP):
The TP is overall getting warmer and wetter during the past decades. Temperature is significantly increased, especially since the 1980s. The overall warming rate ranges from 0.16 to 0.67 °C decade–1 since the 1950s during different periods. The TP shows a uniform warming trend with the most significant warming in the northern part.
Sure sounds like a rapid warming rate for some parts of Tibet, then...
