It's more than a little absurd, but then, as the Very Seriously Scholarly Chicago Boyz inform us,
This is embarrassing as many are attacking the methods with what sound like valid arguments.
Uh, no kidding.
You know what's fun? You don't even have to be good at math to know why this is some sweet, sweet garbage:
Two weeks ago, under the headline “How we are being tricked by flawed data on global warming”, I wrote about Paul Homewood, who, on his Notalotofpeopleknowthat blog, had checked the published temperature graphs for three weather stations in Paraguay against the temperatures that had originally been recorded. In each instance, the actual trend of 60 years of data had been dramatically reversed, so that a cooling trend was changed to one that showed a marked warming.
Three weather stations in Paraguay!
Three Weather Stations in Paraguay would be an interesting title for a Tom Waits song, but otherwise, what the shit?
