Thank you for your response. I got tired of waiting for Andrew. I sit now with an espresso in a mug.
I think Andrew is getting a bit edgy because if you look at the 2007 claim, it looks a lot like the 1995 claim. You know, the old trick about the “fact” that there was no warming since 1995. (The very same Richard used that one too, but let’s not digress: I surmise he used them all.)
So on the face of it, a skeptic must agree that the rhetorical ploy looks very similar. It’s all déjà vu all over again. In fact, my actual comment too. And yours too, we must admit. Why do we keep repeating ourselves?
Let’s blame the Intertubes.
