Okay, let's put Greenland and the actual article I referenced (by Heffernan) to one side for the moment. You say of the research paper by England, McGregor, Spence et al, which you seem to believe justifies the "skeptics":
Professor England himself had this to say:
“Climate scientists have long understood that global average temperatures don't rise in a continual upward trajectory, instead warming in a series of abrupt steps in between periods with more-or-less steady temperatures. Our work helps explain how this occurs," Professor England said.
“We should be very clear: the current hiatus offers no comfort – we are just seeing another pause in warming before the next inevitable rise in global temperatures.”
