David Deming (He was the Professor from University of Oklahoma who was told by IPCC Lead Author that they had to get rid of the MWP leading to the infamous Mann et al Hockey Stick)
has been criticising a recent Associated Press report on Global Warming.
In the report Science (Fiction?) writer Seth Borenstein said: "Global warming is accelerating."
Deming replied with: "The mean global temperature, at least as measured by satellite, is now the same as it was in the year 1980. In the last couple of years sea level has stopped rising. Hurricane and cyclone activity in the northern hemisphere is at a 24 year low and sea ice globally is also the same as it was in 1980"

The World Meteorological Organisation thinks 2008 was the 10th warmest year on record(really, not according to GISS, UAH, Hadley), the second lowest level of Arctic Ice cover (oh yeah? Go to Cryosphere today) and more idiocy.
