Stephen McIntyre, a Toronto mathematician and contributor for the Not Evil Just Wrong film, was featured on CNN yesterday to discusses climategate's latest defensive tactics. One of the e-mails focuses on how Penn State climatologist Michael Mann accumulated data showing a steady increase in temperatures for the last decade.
I've just completed Mike [Mann]'s Nature trick of adding in real temps to each series for the last 20 years ... and from 1961 ... to hide the decline," Climate Research Unit Director Phil Jones wrote to Mann and others on Nov. 16, 1999.
Mann has come out saying that by "trick" they meant a clever way to solve the problem. But McIntyre said in a recent Chicago Tribune article that the "trick" was misleading based upon the tree ring data used. "What the technique was, was instead of showing the decline, not showing it," McIntyre said.
It should be noted that even NASA scientist and one of Al Gore's advisor's James Hansen, who while trying to downplay McIntyre's findings, eventually admitted McIntyer correctly revealed the error in Mann's graphs.
