Will the BEST project silence global warming deniers and continue myths about surface temperatures?

Two big names involved are Richard Muller, who has brought to light a lot of information about "hide the decline" recently, and Judith Curry, a member of the "skeptic" movement. A number of prominent "skeptics" have praised the idea, like Fred Singer and Anthony Watts, but don't see it as being very credible with only alarmists being involved.

The group has started working on a draft paper based on their preliminary beliefs. Muller described their findings as follows:

“We are not seeing substantial global warming...None of the effects raised by the [alarmists] is going to have anything more than a marginal effect on the amount of global warming.”

Ken Caldeira, a true believer and adamant alarmist, who has seen the draft paper, said:

"Their preliminary results sit right within the results of NOAA, NASA, and HadCRU, confirming that prior analysis were correct in every way that matters. Their results confirm the reality of global warming and support in all essential respects the historical temperature analyses of the NOAA, NASA, and HadCRU."

Since the project is run by and has received praise from "alarmists" and "Eco-theologists", or whatever you want to call them, and has once again claimed to confirm the results of the other scientific groups that they agree with, like members of NASA GISS, do you think this will silence all the deniers and continue the myths about the surface temperature record?
