The Blackboard » Trenberth on “Cheery Picking”.
But in any case: the arguments Trenberth was ‘rebutting” seemed merely to be that (a) current warming may be slower than in the 70-00 era (i.e. < 0.16 C/dec) or (b) it may be slower than projected in the AR4 (i.e. “about 0.2 C/dec), I’m entirely sure what the point of negative trends being “robust” is supposed to be. After all: Noticing that the recent trends are very low relative to what one might expect for a 0.2C/dec trend with weather does not require one to believe that the 10 year trend will turn into a sustained negative trend. It only requires one to think that the negative 10 year trends suggest that the underlying deterministic trend (which can be masked by noise) is lower than 0.2C/dec.
