Do you have an y specific issues with the new algo? It seems you dislike the results and are implying some level of malfeasance.
I'll repeat the relevant section from my first paragraph...
"... the term "pausebuster" is one that is regularly (and disparagingly) used on Roy Spencer's blog when referring to the change in retrieval algorithm which accompanies the transition from Remote Sensing System's ver3.3 to RSS ver4 data."
Gistemp LOTI, HADCrut, HadSST and NOAA NCEI numbers all show 2016 as being considerably warmer than 1998.
NASA's "vital signs" show 2016 mean sea level as being about 61 millimetres higher than that for 1998.http://climate.nasa.gov/vital-signs/sea-level/
For any month you care to name, PIOMAS shows a loss of around six or seven thousand cubic kilometres of Arctic Sea Ice from 1998 until the present.
Meanwhile, Roy Spencer's take on all this is that, as the difference is just 0.02C in their annualised anomaly, 1998 and 2016 are statistically inseparable. In addition, the good doctor doesn't seem to want to acknowledge that, in terms of rolling 12-month periods, the last 6 (i.e. Sep2015-Aug2016 to Feb2016-Jan2017) were all above any previous 12-month average. If one takes any longer rolling average period (2 years, 3 years, 5 years, 10 years etc.) using the UAH ver6 Beta5 date, the story is just the same.
Traditionally, in terms of climatology, average temperatures are taken over a period of 30 years. As such, each year has an identical weighting - the "cold" years have just as much effect on the climatology as the "hot" years. That seems to be forgotten in certain quarters.
It's up to you if you wish to categorise the differences produced by the two algorithms as malfeasance, observer bias, or whatever. I've plotted the deltas on a chart, and people can make up their own minds.
