Has this been peer reviwed or is it an independant study?
I believe both now apply actually. The study was funded by the skeptic groups an undertaken by a skeptic, the data was released prior to publication, but I believe has now been peer reviewed.http://berkeleyearth.org/papers/
Isn't this where you should be making it clear you are talking about the paper Tim discussed because as it stands it does give the impression you are talking about the ANDRILL project being funded by sceptics until you open the link?
Given the title and the references Tim gave to urban heat impacts, I thought the context was clear, but in case of confusion it can be clarified. Yes, I was speaking about the BEST program which was the initial point of discussion in the thread.
We all make mistakes Wayne, I see you are human after all
I am human and do make mistakes. I think it was on a Tuesday when I made mine.
Am glad you couldn't read my mind last night, a quarter of a bottle of whisky from 1974 to finish the night messed it up so much I couldn't even understand it as is clear from the wrong link for the second quote, last time I finish a weekend of celebrations like that for a while.
Congrats on whatever it was you were celebrating.
I am sure if you look at the final review paper that is available on the andrill.org site you will see it is in the paper, along with the remarks they have found evidence of the medieval warm period and little ice age in the cores, in the southern most part of the southern hemisphere, would have thought it.
Yes graphs can be, believe any scientist or wanna be statistician can make graphs represent what they want, it is only when you come to a representation of the raw data like the one shown in my op that it is hard to dispute.
But the graph in your OP was not referenced and could not be known to represent anything. What was not really represented is the time frame error margins, which can really skew the graph if it is to be taken as an accurate depiction of the time period.
So lets stop with the bashing of the new poster and look at the paper (and all the research behind it) and the reason I felt it important after all this time reading this forum and not joining to post this piece of research before but posted it in this thread.
That will be easier now there are some links with which to work.
