    I guess you agree I’m around 3.88 million times smarter than you, too, eh?

    After all, you “found” zero matches. I found millions.

    @ Wow, it’s trivial to find articles about global reconstructions AND/OR hemispheric reconstructions. The question I’m asking—which you keep dodging, for some reason—is:

    “what is a global hemispheric reconstruction?”

    HINT: to search google for an exact phrase, use quotation marks around it—e.g., “global hemispheric reconstruction.”

    No results found for “global hemispheric reconstruction”.

    ““@ Wow, it’s trivial to find articles about global reconstructions AND/OR hemispheric reconstructions”

    YOU found zero.”

    Wrong. When I omitted the quotes, I got over 5 million hits, of which several were scholarly articles.

    But they were about “global AND hemispheric reconstructions”, “reconstructions ON global, hemispheric AND regional scales”, etc.

    That is why you mustn’t omit the quotes.

    Hurry up. You still owe us an explanation of “global hemispheric reconstruction.”

    I don’t get your strategy. Why are you linking people to a question you refused to answer: “which claims about the MWP would you like to know my source for?” Such a link will only add to the Internet’s impression that you’re evasive.

    “Brad” your referenceswere to MBH98//99 – one was global one was hemispheric – hence global hemispheric or global/hemispheric if you prefer. Now put your one good synapse back in the jar and let it rest. It’s just learned something, you petty little word parser you. But then that’s all you’ve got isn’t it? You certainly don’t have even any basic knowledge..

    No hold on wait… this needs to be examined too.
    Wow, did they know they could embarrass the CRU “scientists” merely by obtaining their emails

    Firstly there were several instances of universities studying climate being burgled, or having to chase phoney technicians off the premises. It wasn’t just UEA that was under attack.

    Secondly, there was one person in particular with a raging hard on for UEA data who was personally insulted by Phil Jones telling him to take a hike. I stronly suspect – not that I’m advocating such a thing – Heaven forfend! – that if Stevie and his inner coven were waterboarded, some leads would bereadily forthcoming for the authorities to follow up.

    Thirdly following on from the above, I think the hackers were too incomptent to hack UEA’s data, and had to settle for the back up mail server.

    Which as we now know gained them nothing but a minor blogstorm in the crankosphere unnoticed by the general public who don’t care what happens in crankworld, and the end of tolerance for them by scientists. As Tim Ball and CEI are discovering.

    The only people who should be embarrassed were those trying to spin “trick” and “hide the decline” into something nefarious, but they don’t understand the concept of shame (except as a ploy to adopt when caught).

    As your last argument (“you warm streak of piss”) makes clear, you have no argument. It’s quite obvious to both of us that “global hemispheric reconstruction” is word salad. If it had been used by actual scientists at some point, then we might give it the benefit of the doubt by presuming it was a term of art with a meaning obvious to those scientists, if not to us.

    But apparently it hasn’t been written before. You and chek appear to be the only people on earth who know what you mean by “global hemispheric reconstruction”, and you’re conspicuously unwilling to tell the other 6,999,999,998 of us what it means. How cute—you and your widdle fwend have a private wanguage! ;-) You’re adorable, Wow. :-)

    You are wrong.

    I have plenty of argument, and you ARE a warm streak of piss. The fact of one does not mean the nonexistence of the other.

    However, you have nothing other than cod-psychology to work with and hence have to clutch at straws to pretend you have no case to answer.

    Which rather goes to prove you have nothing.

    @ chek, thanks for writing a responsive comment for a change. I’m not convinced by your argument, but I respect your right to make it and the right of all others to swim if they can’t put up an argument.

    “Firstly there were several instances of universities studying climate being burgled, or having to chase phoney technicians off the premises. It wasn’t just UEA that was under attack.”

    Did any other climate science department’s emails get stolen? (Not a rhetorical question—I honestly don’t know.)

    Secondly, there was one person in particular with a raging hard on for UEA data who was personally insulted by Phil Jones telling him to take a hike.

    Who, Warwick Hughes? The scientist to whom Phil Jones wrote the infamous question:

    “Why should I make the data available to you, when your aim is to try and find something wrong with it?”

    Again, though: why would he or anyone else go to the effort and risk of stealing the CRU’s backup email data without some a priori reason to think the theft would turn up such juicy meat as “hide the decline”, “redefine the peer-reviewed literature if necessary,” “beat the crap out of [Patrick Michaels]”, etc.?

    “The only people who should be embarrassed were those trying to spin “trick” and “hide the decline” into something nefarious, but they don’t understand the concept of shame (except as a ploy to adopt when caught).”

    Who tried to spin “trick” into something nefarious?

    Its nefariousness is wholly and obviously subordinate to that of the following phrase. (A “trick” to do something kosher is itself kosher, as everyone knows. A “trick” to do something haram is itself haram.)

    “Hide the decline” requires no spinning. The verb “to hide” is anti-scientific in se.

  24. #24 Wow
    February 8, 2013

    “Did any other climate science department’s emails get stolen?”

    So you admit it was stolen from CRU.

    “Who, Warwick Hughes?”

    You’re a moron, you know that?

    “why would he or anyone else go to the effort and risk of stealing the CRU’s backup email data without some a priori reason…”

    It’s called “a fishing expedition” you dripping bumgravy.

    Are you SERIOUSLY pretending to have gone to university to study philosophy and HAVEN’T HEARD of Richelieu?

    Fucking hell, you’re a moron!

    “Who tried to spin “trick” into something nefarious? ”

    Yup, more proof you’re a moron.

    “The verb “to hide” is anti-scientific in se.”

    Since punctuation is clearly too much to expect of you, I suppose I’ll have to fix this myself:

    “You’re still not comprehending the difference between regional events and global/hemispherical reconstructions, are you “Brad”?”

    Yes, I understand it with blinding clarity. The two sets are distinguished by these facts:

    1. one contains events, the other contains reconstructions

    2. one contains regional things, the other contains global/hemispheric things

    @ Wow reveals a deep unfamiliarity with climate-science news:

    “WHAT DECLINE WAS HIDDEN?”

    Jones hid the decline in MXD of his dendro proxies for the period 1960-present. Look at the graph he presented to the WMO—not only is the decline gone, it’s been replaced by an incline.

    Everyone else seems to know this, Wow. Weren’t you paying any attention in the period 2009-present?

  29. #29 Wow
    February 8, 2013

    “Jones hid the decline in MXD of his dendro proxies for the period 1960-present. ”

    No, there is no decline in the proxies. He has more proxies from 1960 onwards than for earlier times.

    Listen, Wow, plenty of people have googled “CRU investigation” and received a smorgasbord of references to investigations that did not investigate the “Hide the Decline” issue. So unless you can do better than “google it, poopy-heads” followed by a search string that doesn’t point to the answer, we have to conclude that the question has stumped you, as expected.

    Bollocks again.

    http://scienceblogs.com/deltoid/2013/02/02/brangelina-thread/comment-page-3/#comment-147625

    Since CRU investigations were investigations into the CRU and the science, these investigations were investigating the claim of “hiding the decline”.

    However, since you’re ABSOLUTELY CLUELESS about what the hell is going on, you’re left wondering.

    YOU claim “hide the decline” is anti-science, but you DON’T KNOW what the phrase is about!

    Keyes is a dishonest troll and is wasting everyone’s’ time here. It is easy to show that Wow is correct and that there were in fact 7 inquiries into the science conducted by Phil Jones and the CRU at UEA.

    Keyes is one of those loathsome idiots who argues for the sake of arguing. If a respected scientist stated that the sky was blue idiots like Keyes would argue that it is not. We have all met these narcissists during our university days, these were the fools who would march up to the lecturer after a lecture and tell him that everything he said was wrong. Luckily most of them never graduated and so never got into positions where they have any effect on the day to day workings of the world and its people.

    The only way they can appear to be intelligent is by using big words, which they don’t understand and hope that their audience doesn’t either, on blogs rather in the mainstream science or in accredited literary outlets. Unfortunately for people like Keyes their audience is a great deal smarter than they are.

    Keyes should be ignored.

    @ Collected Wow:

    “Really, WHAT decline was hidden?
    REALLY.
    REALLY REALLY.
    WHAT DECLINE WAS HIDDEN?
    WHAT DECLINE WAS HIDDEN?
    _WHAT DECLINE WAS HIDDEN?_
    YOU, however, have NO CLUE what the decline was.
    You don’t even know what the bloody decline IS!
    Do you have to be told the answer?
    Here’s a hint, since you fail to grasp even the simplest of concepts: The graph IS NOT tree ring thickness!
    And remember, it requires YOU to say what the decline is because it is YOU that insists that this is something anti-scientific.
    WHAT IS THE DECLINE THAT IS HIDDEN.
    But you have to understand what “decline” was being “hidden” otherwise you’re looking for the wrong thing.
    Which you do because that’s what you’ve been told to do by someone who at least as one full brain cell to work with.
    YOU, however, have NO CLUE what the decline was.
    YOU claim “hide the decline” is anti-science, but you DON’T KNOW what the phrase is about!”

    How much energy have you spent AVOIDING telling us what you think “the decline” means, Wow?

    @ Ian:

    “It is easy to show that Wow is correct and that there were in fact 7 inquiries into the science conducted by Phil Jones and the CRU at UEA.”

    And which of those 7 actually investigated the “Hide the Decline” issue, Ian?

  82. #82 Brad Keyes

    Questions you have vigorously, volubly, verbosely failed to answer, Wow:

    1. What does “the decline” refer to?

    2. What 7 investigations actually investigated the “Hide the Decline” issue?

    Wow, you’re slow.

    “Says the guy who doesn’t know why you put quotation marks around “global hemispheric reconstructions” in order to restrict the search to the exact phrase.

    WRONG!

    I know that.

    What I don’t know is why you decided unilaterally to do that.”

    I’ve explained why I did it—because you used the phrase “global hemispheric reconstruction” (which I’ve never seen before, and which looks pretty suspect if you ask me). In order to search for a phrase on google you need to enclose it in quotes. Otherwise you get millions of irrelevant hits about “global conference on the hemispheric repair and reconstruction of …”, yadda yadda.

    Or, indeed, millions of relevant hits about global hemispheric records and temperature reconstructions.

    @ Wow, you seem to object to this:

    “I’ve explained why I did it—because you used the phrase “global hemispheric reconstruction””

    I forgot whether it was your phrase or chek’s. Whatever. One of you said it and the other is defending it to the bitter death, never mind that it makes bugger-all sense.

    Here’s your killer point though:

    “And the person who DID say it never used quotes around those three words.”

    LOL!!!

    Wow, Wow, Wow… when normal people reference phrases used by others, they often use quotes, a.k.a. quotation marks, to mark the text being quoted.

    What do you mean “whatever”?

    You’ve been whining at me about saying something I’ve not said.

    When it’s done to YOU, you go all screaming tart on everyone and DEMAND retraction.

    When YOU do it, “Whatevah”.

    never mind that it makes bugger-all sense.

    THAT’S WHAT I’VE BEEN SAYING.

    Putting quotes around it was YOUR idea. And it makes bugger all sense. But YOU did it.

    Not chek, not me, not Vinny, YOU.

    Then do so. That’s fine. What ISN’T is putting it around a google search because, and you don’t seem to know this, if you do so, you’re not quoting someone, you’re limiting to PRECISELY the words used.

    And that is why you suck at google.

    I have given my answer to this twice now, Wow. Most recently, see comment #28 on this very page.

    “2. Where is your data?”

    Hmm. “My data”. What could that mean… what could that mean…

    In my left parietal lobe. On the bookshelf in front of me. Out There In Nature. In the mail? Behind your ear—look! In the primary literature?

    Close?

    No? Then I have no idea how to answer your ridiculous, half-formed question. Perhaps if you could articulate your needs a bit better I might be able to address them.

    So Brad, do you think the misnomered ‘MWP’ *was* warmer than the present? Or was the basis of this… discussion about something else?

    Forgive me for just coming right out and asking, but I can’t be faffed to plough back through nX comments to find out where the bone of contention is buried.

    Actually we do know that, and that was the whole point. We wanted to know what chek meant when he used precisely the words he used: “global hemispheric reconstruction.” Not “global or hemispheric reconstruction.” Not “hemiglobal and spherical reconstruction.” Not “hemoglobin construction in spherocytes.”

    Global hemispheric reconstruction.

    Nobody else on the world wide web knows what it means, as far as we can tell.

    Chek has since amended it to “global/hemispheric reconstruction”, which makes a lot more sense. You don’t seem to have noticed chek’s intervention and are still maniacally defending the original, senseless phrase.

    @ BBD

    That’s a good question but no, it’s not the bone of contention here. If I remember my ancient history, we’re arguing because some long-vanished, vanquished villain vapidly averred that the BEST study (which examined Earth surface temperatures, starting at 1750) had “proven” Michael Mann’s Hockey Stick “correct.” Which is a numerical stretch too far even for Lotharsson to attempt in defense of the “orthodox” view, I’m afraid.

    Brad

    Ah. I see. Presumably the claim was that BEST corroborated the HS *post* 1750? Which is fair enough.

    Prior to that, we are of course in the dark forest of Proxy… ;-)
