'The last 10 years are the warmest 10-year period of the modern record,' said NOAA climate monitoring chief Deke Arndt. 'Even if you analyze the trend during that 10 years, the trend is actually positive, which means warming' ".
"The AP sent expert statisticians NOAA's (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) year-to-year ground temperature changes over 130 years and the 30 years of satellite-measured temperatures PREFERRED BY SKEPTICS and gathered by scientists at the University of Alabama in Huntsville.
"Saying there is a downward trend since 1988 is not scientifically legitimate, Said David Peterson, a retired Duke University statistics professor and one of those analyzing the numbers."
Statisticians who analyzed the data found a distinct decades-long UPWARD trend in the numbers, but could not find a significant drop in the past 10 years in either data set."
