Check out this nonsense from Lubos
Many skeptics’ adjustment-phobia unmasks their anti-scientific credentials
Whether or not you apply one of the specified major adjustments or two or none of them doesn’t visibly affect the resulting graph at all.
I am surely a “lukewarmer”, together with Steven Mosher, because the label of the full-fledged skeptics has been hijacked by anti-science nut jobs, indeed.
Lubos has no clue what he is talking about. The only decent temperature record is in the US, and it has been massively altered to cool the past.
The global surface temperature record is complete crap, with most of the land surface not covered, more than 50% of the data fake, and huge selective loss of rural stations since the 1970’s
Check out this whopper from Lubos.
The temperature record resulting from the weather stations differs from the graphs generated by the satellites – not by too much
Utter bullshit, Lubos. The divergence between Berkeley Earth and satellites is massive
Why a few skeptics are letting themselves be used like this is beyond my comprehension. The temperature record has been massively and successively altered across the planet, through replacement of rural data with urban data.
Lubos is focused on one aspect of the problem, and missing the forest for the trees. We have a great opportunity to finish this scam off, and a small group of academics are letting themselves be used to sabotage it. And then calling other skeptics “anti-science nut jobs”
