This statistical manipulation essentially done quickly in response to a misquote from a government administrator’s statement does not qualify in my view as peer-reviewed science regardless of who is listed as a coauthor. It simply illustrates the political bias and favoritism given to certain points of view regardless of the science. For rebuttals refuting Santer et al click here and here.

Satellite temperature measurements do not support the recent claim of a “leveling off of warming” over the past two decades. Tropospheric warming trends over recent 20-year periods are always significantly larger (at the 10% level or better) than model estimates of 20-year trends arising from natural internal variability. Over the full 38-year period of the satellite record, the separation between observed warming and internal variability estimates is even clearer. In two out of three recent satellite datasets, the tropospheric warming from 1979 to 2016 is unprecedented relative to internally generated temperature trends on the 38-year timescale.
“One of the most popular alarmist arguments is likening the “consensus climate scientists” to medical doctors. For example, this essay on “climate denial” from Andrew Winston at medium.com took part in the bashing of recently hired climate skeptic Brett Stevens at the NYT.” click here for WUWT
“NOAA publishes two US temperature data sets – raw and final. In the graph below, the raw (measured) temperature data is shown in blue, the reported (final) data is shown in red, and satellite temperatures of the troposphere over the United States since 1979 are shown in green.” click here
“In May of 2016, a survey by Nature revealed that over two thirds of researchers surveyed had tried and failed to reproduce the results of another scientist’s study. Over half of them had been unable to reproduce their own results. Fifty two percent of researchers polled said there was a “significant crisis” of reproducibility.” click here
Hey Bill, what qualifies you as the savior of the world compared to Jesus Christ?
“Eleven days ago, the New York Times ran a story headlined: “In an Age of Alternative Facts, Bill Nye’s New Show Brings Real Ones.” How charmingly naive. If you’re in a rush, and want to know about Nye’s misleading video as well as his misleading article in the very same New York Times, scroll down to the navy-coloured text below. But the longer story is entertaining.” click here
“The bottom line is that the NOAA headline graph is grossly dishonest. Indeed, if a company published something like that in their Annual Accounts, they would probably end up in jail!” click here
