Atmoz examines a Climate Audit thread as Steve McIntyre and company wrestle with the question of why the northern hemisphere is warming faster than the southern hemisphere.

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…

Back in January, Steve McIntyre used some erroneous data of satellite-measured temperatures from RSS to argue that Hansen’s 1988 temperature projections were too high. A week later he posted a corrected graph, blaming RSS for not making the error clear: The fact that users are “falling into the RSS error trap” is one more good…

Ofcom round up

David Rado emails: although the accuracy sections of our complaint were considered under section 2.2 of the broadcasting code, that was not the section that we had complained under. We complained primarily under section 5.7, but Ofcom decided section 5.7 only related to news programmes. We don’t think the code makes it at all clear…

Climate Audit Comedy of Errors

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 a 1988 paper James Hansen presented three scenarios (A, B and C) for future climate change, saying that Scenario B was the most plausible. In 1998 Pat Michaels committed scientific fraud when he erased scenarios B and C from Hansen’s graph to argue that Hansen’s predictions was out by 300%. In fact, as you…

Nexus 6 on Steve McIntyre

Nexus 6 puts Steve McIntyre’s paranoia into pictures.

Steve McIntyre and the Data Quality Act

If you’ve never heard of the Data Quality Act go read this article by Chris Mooney. Back? Good. Steve McIntyre, still angry after a comment was not released from moderation on Christmas Day, is now trying to use the Data Quality Act against RealClimate. As far as I can make out, because Gavin Schmidt works…

Climate Audit Paranoia

Some time ago, Steve McIntyre insinuated that Gavin Schmidt was dishonest after one of McIntyre’s comments was held up in moderation. In his latest post (at 9:20 am on December 26) McIntyre complains that: realclimate censored my post, which pointed out an incident of realclimate fallability, as opposed to admitting and correcting that part of…

The McIntyre factor

The McIntyre factor is the amount that you have to multiply the size of an adjustment in the GISS US temperatures by to get the number of words in the resulting Steve McIntyre post. Empirical evidence puts the McIntyre factor at 125,000. You see, on Sep 10 GISS made some small changes: We switched to…
