John Mclean has a reply to Lewandowsky at the Drum where he proves once and for all that he has no clue, with comments like:
If the SOI accounts for short-term variation then logically it also accounts for long-term variation.
We show a relationship going back to the 1950s. Isn’t that long enough for your “long-term” ?
Despite being challenged to post the reviewers comments on his Reply declining publication, Mclean hides the declines. Where’s the transparency?
Below I plot UAH temperature data and the differenced UAH data to show that taking differences removes any long-term trend. Apparently this is too complicated for Mclean.
