10-15 Years Of No Statistically Significant Global Warming

"It is incontrovertible that the global annual average temperature of the past decade, and in some datasets the past 15 years, has not increased. Year-on-year fluctuations, and any trend over this period, are within errors of measurement. The only justifiable statistical description of the global temperature during this period is a constant. Technically, this standstill can be seen in the datasets produced by NOAA, NASA, the BEST consortium, HadCRUT3, and especially, its successor HadCRUT4. This standstill has occurred as atmospheric CO2 has increased from 370 parts per million (ppm) to 390 ppm, providing an increasing forcing factor that will raise global temperatures."
A paragraph taken from the executive summary to his report on the "Global Warming Standstill", by David Whitehouse, former Science Correspondent for the BBC. You can of course guess the significance of that adjective "former" - he was more than likely fired for his integrity of opinion to the empirical data.
