21:04 It’s there!
21:03: No earthquake so far here in Germany, no bright flashes – though we are having one heck of a shower right now – hopefully lightning will not knock out the power!
21.00 CET: Still no press release. Speculation has run wild since Friday.
20:57 CET: A few more minutes. Many of the climate science followers and bloggers are commenting over at Lucia’s Blackboard and McIntyre’s CA. McIntyre comments at LB that everyone should dial back expectations.

From the press release: “These factors, combined with station siting issues, have led to a spurious doubling of U.S. mean temperature trends in the 30 year data period covered by the study from 1979 – 2008”.
He just shot Hansen et al out of the saddle.
This is really big stuff. Now the rest of the planet. See this
“The new improved assessment, for the years 1979 to 2008, yields a trend of +0.155C per decade from the high quality sites, a +0.248 C per decade trend for poorly sited locations, and a trend of +0.309 C per decade after NOAA adjusts the data.”
I agree. But Hansen has a bullet proof vest and he’s just gonna get right back on. This is much smaller than Climategate, so I doubt it’s going to change much. Anthony should have spared us the pre-announcement theatrics. I suppose Hansen will be under lots of pressure. Getting him to resign will be like pulling teeth.
