After posting my 40% manufactured data graph the other day, a skeptic sent me this E-mail.
This claim: “More than 40% of USHCN final station data is now generated from stations which have no thermometer data.”
Is utterly bogus.
This kind of unsubstantiated claim is why some skeptics get called conspiracy theorists. If you can’t back it up to show that 40% of the USHCN has stopped reporting, then don’t publish it.
I’d take it down right now if I were you before somebody sees it and calls you out on it.
YOU NEED TO DO BETTER.
This is a very simple concept. The data below is for Troy, Alabama in 2012. There was no station data for January-April (-9999) – so they manufactured it as marked by “E” in the final data.
More than 40% of the current USHCN V2.5 final data now comes in this category.
The data is available here :
Skeptics do need to do better, and step up their game.
