Oh really? Do you think tree ring growth patterns of a population of trees in Canada should be used to "reconstruct" temperature records in Europe? That's what Michael Mann did and no one in the climate change community challenged him. Seriously, doesn't that bother your intuition one bit? How about using a linear regression coefficient of 0.2 to calibrate your standard curve? Does that sound valid to you?Originally Posted by Hard

There is a healthy community of skeptics who do great work. I just read their stuff. I could recommend some websites if that's allowed.You operate under the delusion that everyone is an idiot but yourself.
