What, Ed, does it matter what you call it. It can be range of uncertainty, an imagined 95% confidence level range, or margin of error. It all boils down to a ginned up guesstimate that just so happens to advance the radical AGW cause. That the tiny .02 GISS estimated record anomaly increase is 250% less than BESTS range of uncertainty means 2014's anomaly is statistically insignificant and certainly not an end to the pause.

Now why don't you fully peruse the linked article below. There is economic warfare quietly raging, new geopolitical alliances arising from necessity, and full cooperation at Paris will likely be a figment of the CAGW communities sick imagination. The world is a hungry and dangerous place, it's time to get real.

Nothing like a good old fashioned nuclear winter to mitigate all this climate madness, eh Frosty?

Actually, I rather believe we are seeing the descent of the west into madness and the ascent of the east into rationality. Self Imposed Independent assured destruction; it does't require exchange of fire when one side is busy shooting itself.

Hey Ed, are you talking weather now? The Iditarod is still a month away.

Frosty, as far as potus doing any serious saber rattling; you'll know it if and when our resident Dr. Strangelove (stockpile babysitter)goes silent, on all these silly threads.

Weather varies, climate change moves the center that it varies around, and/or the degree of variation -- shifting the distribution of hot and cold events as well. That's why climatologists show variation together with trends; the new "record" warm year per NOAA and NASA matters because of its context, a longer-term warming trend, and the buildup of greenhouse gases that are changing the Earth's thermal balance. Pointing out that it doesn't beat the old record by much is pretty silly in this context because the "old" record was 2010.

10 of the 10 warmest years in NASA's 135-year record have occurred since 1998, and 9 of the 10 since 2002. That's a reality less silly than arguing about the difference from 2010 to 2014.

In keeping with Ed's Alaska note, here's yet another sign of the Great Climate Conspiracy:

Blog network analysis: WUWT & Co. isolated from science

reads a headline at Variable Variability, an interesting and intelligent blog by Victor Venema, a meteorologist at the University of Bonn.

This analysis looks more like a high school social network than a layout of the climate change blogosphere.

Message: WUWT - not one of the cool kids.

WUWT does a good job exposing the BS propaganda served up AGW advocates. The Jarreau "analysis" is good example.

WUWT does a good job exposing the BS propaganda served up AGW advocates.

Or in an alternative characterization by And Then There's Physics, WUWT is an "anti-science hate site." Which explains why its cluster (and judging from the comments there, most of its readers) are so isolated from real science. However WUWT does feed its ideological base the arguments they want to hear.

The Jarreau "analysis" is good example.

Nope that's not right either. Here's the big picture:

I love how the propaganda liberal news machine just keeps on exaggerating the reality and so many play into it.

Liberals have a fact bias.

Deniers have a bullshit bias.
