I'll head over there in moment, Simon. First I wanted to mention the cool chart I saw there last night showing a surge in that elusive quantity "global temperature." Seems the data plot for the 90's was based on a modified constellation of weather stations that dropped out Canada and Siberia, thus providing "graphic evidence" that the 90's were the warmest decade in history.

The best explanation for the average global temperature is still the one that says it makes as much sense as trying to determine the average global telephone number.

Expanding on comment above:

Quote: – reminds us of the cheapest way to cool the planet:

Reopen the Canadian and Siberian temperature stations closed ca. 1990, prompting ‘the hottest decade on record’.

Plot of Average T vs number of stations.
