I hope you’re not right about the lack of warming lasting till about 2020. I’d rather hoped to see the earlier Met Office press release with Doug’s paper that said something like – half the years to 2014 would exceed the warmest year currently on record, 1998! Still a way to go before 2014.
I seem to be getting an email a week from skeptics saying where’s the warming gone. I know the warming is on the decadal
scale, but it would be nice to wear their smug grins away.
Because a lack of warming would be a) bad for funding, and b) bad for the cult.
