It will be interesting to watch what happens to the AGW denialists' arguments concerning recent temperature trends, since now 1998 is no longer among "the last ten years", as in "global temperatures have been declining for the last ten years". 1999 is now the year at the beginning of "the last ten years", and unfortunately for the AGW denialists, 1999's average temperature was not freakishly high like 1998 was, and in fact was below the regression curves as you can see here:
The denialists now have a serious problem, since the 1999 and 2000 average temperatures are considerably lower than any that follow them. They can't say temperatures have declined for the last ten years any more without exposing themselves as either ignorant parrots or liars. They can't suddenly emphasize the last 11 years without it having the effect of tattooing "cherry pickers R us" on their proclamations.
My prediction is that they will simply keep saying temperatures have dropped for the last ten years regardless of the new data, in similar fashion to how creationists keep chanting "there are no transitional fossils" as those very fossils pile up around them. After all, they were never really interested in reality, or they wouldn't be denialists in the first place.
