The Smith et al paper made the following specific predictions: 'There would be 0.3°C warming over the decade 2004-2014 - At least half of the years after 2009 would be warmer than the record year of 1998.' -- 'The predictions were spread far and wide'
'These predictions have turned out to be wrong. We are almost into 2014 and there has been no warming at all since 2004. Of the years since 2009, none of them have broken the record of 1998 according to HADCRUT3 data'
