Those dirty rotten scientists
His latest effort is to highlight an alleged “scandal” that has come out of the hacking of climate change data and emails, as published in that beacon of dispassionate scientific enquiry, the Mail on Sunday.
This “scandal” is based around the fact that when trying to trace historical tempratures, there weren’t very many accurate records from more than a couple of centuries ago, so scientists developed a number of ways of trying to work out how hot or cold it was for past milliennia.
One of these techniques - measuring tree rings -, doesn’t work for the last 30 or 40 years. We know this for the amazingly simple reason that we know what the temprature actually was then.
So the Daily Mail tells its readers that the heart of this scandal is the way tricksy scientists deleted the data from tree rings from a graph, only to…. “replace it with actual temperature readings”
Why, those dirty rotten scientists.
Nice to the link to this blog from Hopi sen on climategate, not often I quote 'a loyal Labour' blogger, ah well it just shows we are part of the same communist conspiracy with Al Gore and George Soros I suppose.
Love his spelling mistakes, 'tempratures' indeed, makes me feel better about mine
