Perhaps this can explain the standstill. The cull takes out stations in the colder regions so the global temperature record shows a rise. After the cull the situation is relatively stable and the stations are reflecting the true global temperature that is not rising. This would explain why we had a massive step in the global temperature record and the current pause.
It would also explain why the increase in storms etc. that might be expected from a large rise in global temperatures never happened. The Earth just did not warm as per the records, the warming is artificial, a product of poor science.
