When we had the big blowup last summer where Anthony Watts accused me of being wrong about high percentages of missing station data across the entire USHCN data set, Judy Curry finally figured it out after Paul Homewood posted a few examples of what was going on at specific stations.
And two days ago, Judy posted some crap from Zeke and Mosher accusing Paul Homewood of cherry-picking a few stations.
The rules are simple.
- If you use the entire data set like I did, it is too hard to understand
- If you pick a few examples like Paul did, you are cherry-picking
- People who tamper with data are experts
- People who call out the data tamperers must be marginalized
This really isn’t that hard to understand.
