Physicist Dr. Lubos Motl ridicules new study: 'The climate alarmists didn't like the people's increasing knowledge of the 'global warming hiatus' – about the 350th proof that they're pseudoscientists – so they needed a paper to 'explain' the hiatus away.' -- 'To make the story short, they decided that HadCRUT4 can't be perfect if it shows too little warming trend since 1997 or 1998. So a problem with HadCRUT4 has to be found out. They decided that the gaps in the reported temperature are the problem and this problem may be exploited. So they designed a new method to "guess" the missing temperature data at various weather stations and various moments by extracting some data from the satellites. They liked the result, it seemed to be able to calculate the missing figures – and especially because the warming trend since the late 1990s was raised by about 0.5 °C per century which means that it doubled or tripled relatively to the "statistical zero" reported by HadCRUT4.
