Hansen, J., and H. Wilson, 1993: Commentary on the significance of global temperature records. Climatic Change, 25, 185-191, doi:10.1007/BF01661206.

Bassett and Lin, in an article in this issue of Climatic Change, consider the probability of having a record global temperature during the next few years and how that probability was altered by observed global cooling in 1992. This matter is of interest to mathematicians and climatologists, and it is of special relevance to politicians and the person-in-the-street because the presence or absence of new global temperature records is likely to be considered crucial evidence for or against the reality of anthropogenic greenhouse warming. Thus the analysis and conclusions of Bassett and Lin can be expected to receive increased attention and scrutiny as global temperatures are reported during the remainder of this decade.
