Climate Scientists Debunk Latest Bunk by Denier Roy Spencer
It bears repeating that Spencer committed one of the most egregious blunders in the history of remote sensing - committing multiple errors in analyzing the satellite data and creating one of the enduring denier myths, that the satellite data didn’t show the global warming that the surface temperature data did.
As the famous critique goes, ‘Your manuscript is both good and original. But the part that is good is not original, and the part that is original is not good’:
‘He’s taken an incorrect model, he’s tweaked it to match observations, but the conclusions you get from that are not correct,’ Andrew Dessler, a professor of atmospheric sciences at Texas A&M University.
‘It is not newsworthy,’ Daniel Murphy, a National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) cloud researcher, wrote in an email to LiveScience.
NCAR’s Kevin Trenberth (excerpted from below): ‘I have read the paper. I can not believe it got published. Maybe it got through because it is not in a journal that deals with atmospheric science much?’
Read the whole thing, as it explains quite plainly why someone like Spencer should not be given the benefit of the doubt.
