Waiting for Andrew Bolt’s explanation of a record hot year

Whatever we might think we read him. Andrew Bolt sucks readers in. That makes him influential in the peripheral game of political debate. And on no subject more so than in his claim that global warming has not increased for a decade or more.
So I’m disappointed he’s holidaying in Holland now that 2014 is announced as the warmest since records have been kept. I want to read his explanation why the figures don’t mean anything.
In the mean time I’ll just have to look at the graphs released this week by the US NOAA and do the best I can tp understand them.
