I often point out that all four of world temperature indexes demonstrate that world temperatures peaked in 1998 and have been down to flat since then.
As a result of a program on BBC Radio, three years ago pro-global warming scientist Dr. James Annan made a bet with skeptic David Whitehouse that there would not be a record in world temperatures during the next three years. At the time, many pro-global warming scientists, including Annan, were forecasting that very thing with self-described high confidence.
Well, the bet was awarded by the BBC Thursday: Skeptic Whitehouse won. Here is his blog post on the subject. Congratulations, David.
Now, when does the “explaining” start?
