Eli Rabett chronicles the Climate Audit comedy of errors.
One consequence of the error in the RSS satellite data is that the global warming skeptics switched to using RSS, and now they can’t switch back without making it look realy obvious what they are up to.
Update: McIntyre has a new post where he claims:
In the same post that Rabett criticized here, as originally written, I had incorrectly missed a comment in Hansen et al 1988 saying that Scenario B was the “most plausible”, an error which I picked up about 8 hours after the original posting (about 9 am EST) and immediately corrected it when I noticed it. So there was an actual incorrect statement at CA for about 8 hours. Imagine that. I didn’t post up notice of the change until about 9 hours later (I was playing in a squash tournament and had to do some chores and went out after making the correction and posted the notice when I returned.) Meanwhile, a few hours after I made the correction, Lambert wrote a post on this error without mentioning that the error had already been corrected as at the time of his post.
McIntyre, of course, does not link to my post so his readers can check to see what I actually wrote.
It seems rather unlikely that McIntyre corrected the post at 9 am. At 11am he posted a lengthy comment where he continued to argue that A was Hansen’s primary scenario. How did he do this after he supposedly went out for the day? At 11:29 am Roger Pielke Jr posted a comment where he pointed out that Hansen’s paper did say that B was the most plausible. Why we he do this if the posted stated this?
It is possible that McIntyre made the correction in the hour between when Pielke posted his comment and when my post went up and because McIntyre did not mark it as a correction I did not notice that he had changed the text. But if I had noticed such as a unmarked correction, I certainly would have commented on it in my post.
