it has been challenged by Tamino here,

to which he responded here.
My other responses are developing here.
My motivating concern was Kaufman's
recent paper which claims a twentieth century
uptick in temperatures of unprecedented size. I'm
perfectly aware there has been some warming overall. Many
of Daly's records show that. I'm using records here that
extend back to 1840, well beyond the uptick point on the
new Hockey Stick - and early enough to show natural patterns,
and to confirm or deny any pattern of unnatural
uptick supposedly happening in the twentieth century.Very
recent temperature rise is another issue again: UHI /
other station distortions, 1998 El Nino effects, and loss
of stations. Certainly not CO2 suddenly getting its act
together, after 100 years of blowing hot and cold.
