James at suyts space demolishes Marcott et al, Mike Mann and the NYT spinsters

suyts space


This is a fairly lengthy post, but I think it’s an easy read.  For people advanced in graphing and smoothing, you can skip some of mid parts.  It’s intended for laymen to come to a better understanding.

Mikey Mann is babbling again!  From Tom Nelson……

Watching the pro #climatechange#denial smear artists spinning desperately in wake of new article ( …). Dagger in heart?

Rolling on the floor laughing  Uhhmm, no Mikey, It’s done skeptics worlds of good!  You guys were pretty boring lately.  I mean sure, there’s ton’s of material to poke fun, still, but it gets monotonous.  Well, to tell the truth the hockey stick idiocy is monotonous, but, at least this is a newish twist.

    TB, just want to come by and thank you for the plug! It’s appreciated!

    suyts, you’ve been on the blogroll for some time here because from time to time there is mind provoking content. eg. gravity/sea level “discussions”, a lot about jason (satellite) which we were not covering much. I was fed up with the saga, so point at who is writing.

    Seconded, well said Tim. Thanks for the post Suyts.

    Steve McIntyre continues exposing the ‘methods’ of the Marcott paper.

    ‘As noted in my previous post, Marcott, Shakun, Clark and Mix disappeared two alkenone cores from the 1940 population, both of which were highly negative. In addition, they made some surprising additions to the 1940 population, including three cores whose coretops were dated by competent specialists 500-1000 years earlier’
