The Climate Fakir

Is Steven McIntyre a mining consultant who has decided on his terms that Michael Mann has fraudulently modeled the climate. Right. He would know. This is pure wingnuttery and not legitimate. The idea here, on behalf of energy companies and Republican Congressmen and Senators and their equivalents north of the border into heavy oil sands work, is to paint climate scientists as frauds. Typical right wing interest politics for sure, but not valid as science. Let's see NASA Ph.D's or an economist and his boy Friday? That's a toughie.

What is the CA blog? My understanding of glabal warming is extensive and I know who the experts are and aren't. I know who pays for the views they want. Do you?

CA is climateaudit.org the blog of Steve McIntyre et al who orginally exposed the "hockey stick" to be junk science. Subsequently others have done the same.

I assume you don't understand what has been exposed regarding the hockey stick.

1) The data and methods were not made available so that they could be replicated/audited by others - thus violating the first priciples of science.

2) The proxies and methods have been shown to be bad.

3) Pier review has been shown to be inadequate since these problems were not found.

4) All science used in the IPCC report needs to be fully audited if governments and peoples are going to make decisions involving billions/trillions of dollar.

It's a fraud pure and simple. McIntyre is an mining industry shill and everything he says is a lie. Mann's data have only improved since the first paper. Th eproxies are sound and your brain is not. Wingnuttery is NOT science. That's all you have: nutballery.
