The "Paper of Record" and a peer-reviewed Climate Scientist ...

... tell us that there's been no warming since 1895. First, the New York Times, which in a story published 26 January 1989 wrote:
After examining climate data extending back nearly 100 years, a team of Government scientists has concluded that there has been no significant change in average temperatures or rainfall in the United States over that entire period.


The study, made by scientists for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration was published in the current issue of Geophysical Research Letters. It is based on temperature and precipitation readings taken at weather stations around the country from 1895 to 1987.

Phil Jones - director of the University of East Anglia's Climate Research Unit admitted that there's been no warming in the last 15 years. The IPCC AR4 report was based on the CRU's data, and Dr. Jones was an editor of the report.

So let's see: Dr. Jones of the CRU, NOAA, and The New York Times say that there's been nothing since 1895. Can we all just agree that the science is settled?
