Anthony Watts has been a busy boy recently. Today he is quoted along with Zeke, Gavin and Mark Serreze in a hit piece against me and Fox News blaming NASA’s data tampering on my “faulty analysis”
Anthony Watts, a popular skeptic of most climate change data, posted his objection to Goddard’s claim.
“I took Goddard to task over this as well in a private email, saying he was very wrong and needed to do better,” Watts wrote.
Here is the E-mail Anthony is referring to :

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.
He was responding to this E-mail from me.

Here is something interesting. Almost half of USHCN data is now completely fake.
The graph is quite accurate. For example in 2013 there were 14,613 final USHCN monthly temperature readings, which were derived from 10,868 raw monthly temperature readings – which means there were 34% more final readings than actual underlying data. This year about 40% of the monthly final data is being reported for stations with no corresponding raw data – i.e. fabricated.
I was astonished by Anthony’s original response and his failure to acknowledge that he was wrong. But now he is taking his BS out on the road with his newfound alarmist buddies. Unbelievable. It isn’t worth selling your soul to get through peer review.
And BTW – the temperature adjustments are complete garbage.
