Anthony Cox & David Stockwell (Australian Sceptics Party) have a paper that appears to be in peer review. Here http://arxiv.org/PS_cache/arxiv/pdf/0907/0907.1650v3.pdf

Interestingly they acknowledge John McLean and David Evans for comments. Anyone with a better maths brain than me interested in a post on it?

So far I haven't found any evidence that this paper has been published in peer-reviewed journal. ArXiv is just a preprint server to which authors put papers themselves. Deniers have used this trick of putting "papers" to arXiv without peer-review before. ArXiv abstract page for this paper says that the paper has been submitted to ´╗┐International Journal of Forecasting in 2009. Only entry I find for this paper is the arXiv page. It seems that this paper has not been peer-reviewed.

Very quick glance, seems to suggest climate regimes a la Tsonis and Swanson. Also seems to only covers Australia. But that is the extent of my knowledge at this point.
