Deep Climate catches Steve McIntyre in a particularly outrageous piece of quote mining. McIntyre strips a sentence written by Trenberth from its context to make it appear that Trenberth was saying that Jones was an IPCC author for the first time, when in fact Trenberth was saying that Jones was an IPCC lead author for…

The discussion involving Judith Curry and The Hockey Stick Illusion has continued at Collide-a-Scape, with posts on the views of Judith Curry (Curry did admit to getting one of her ten points wrong, but not the other nine) and those of Gavin Schmidt. Steve McIntyre’s comments in the second thread provides another case where readers…

Deep Climate on McIntyre’s trick

Deep Climate investigates Steve McIntyre’s claim that, in the IPCC TAR, Michael Mann used a “trick” to “hide the decline” in Briffa’s tree-ring proxy. You will be shocked, just shocked, to discover that: So, once again, the accusation that Mann “truncated” or “chopped off” the data set is proven to be utterly false.

McIntyre’s trick

Steve McIntyre claims: One version of the trick is used in IPCC TAR. In this version, Mann replaced post-1960 values of the Briffa reconstruction with instrumental values, then did a smooth, then truncated the Briffa reconstruction back to 1960. Post-1960 instrumental values affected the smooth by the arithmetic of the smoothing filter. Steven Mosher claims…

Deep Climate has been reading the stolen emails that Steve McIntyre didn’t mention: Arguing from a cherrypicked selection of quotes from the “Climategate” emails, McIntyre has claimed that IPCC authors Chris Folland and Michael Mann pressured Briffa to submit a reconstruction that would not “dilute the message” by showing “inconsistency” with multi-proxy reconstructions from Mann…

Rose and McIntyre

Deep Climate documents what happened when Steve McIntyre combined his talent for making mountains out of molehills with David Rose’s talent for fabrication: So in summary, we have a nonsensical accusation of “artful” manipulation of a key graph. And we have a fake “blowup” from the Mail on Sunday that contains important differences with the…

Steve McIntyre, down in the quote mine

The phrase “hide the decline” from the stolen CRU emails has been taken out of context and construed to refer to a decline in temperatures this century when in fact it was a reference to a decline in tree-ring density since 1961. Steve McIntyre knows this, but instead of a correction, he offers another misrepesentation…

McIntyre had the data all along

One of McIntyre’s repeated complaints about Briffa was that he refused to release his data. For example, in his post Fresh Data on Briffa’s Yamal #1: A few days ago, I became aware that the long-sought Yamal measurement data url had materialized at Briffa’s website – after many years of effort on my part and…

Over the past few days we have had another outbreak of stories of how global warming has been totally disproved. For example, James Delingpole: the global warming industry is based on one MASSIVE lie When finally McIntyre plotted in a much larger and more representative range of samples than used those used by Briffa –…

Global warming skeptics just keep trying to show that Hansen’s projections in in his 1988 climate model were wrong. We’ve had Pat Michaels, who dishonestly erased scenarios B and C from Hansen’s graph, Willis Eschenbach at Climate Audit, who used the wrong baseline for temperature data and Steve McIntyre used some erroneous data of satellite-measured…
