Note: I’m reposting this excellent essay from Jo Nova to give it a wide as an audience as possible. Be sure to bookmark her site if you have not already. – Anthony

300,000 dollars and three years to produce a paper that lasted three weeks: Gergis

The paper might have been scientifically invalid, but it was a box-office success. The headlines were everywhere

“1000 years of climate data confirms Australia’s warming” said the press release from University of Melbourne. It was picked up by The Guardian: “Australasia has hottest 60 years in a millennium, scientists find”; The Age and The Australian led with “Warming since 1950 ‘unprecedented’. The story was on ABC 24 and ABC news where Gergis proclaimed:” there are no other warm periods in the last 1000 years that match the warming experienced in Australasia since 1950.” It was all over the ABC including ABC Radio National, and they were “95% certain“! On ABC AM, “the last five decades years in Australia have been the warmest. ” Plus there were pages in Science Alert, Campus Daily Eco news, The Conversation, Real Climate and Think Progress.

Blog review is where the real science gets tested

To paraphrase Mark Twain/Benjamin Disraeli:

"There are three four kinds of lies: lies, damned lies, and statistics... and AGW Climatologists' Tree Ring Data."

HOCKY.

Yes, it gets lonely out there in the Outback. And hot too. Always been and always will. Lots of ice cores out there to measure -right?

Somebody’s bommerang hit the researchers in the head.

Perhaps someone should ask this Gergis, why three years ago, then two years ago during in each case the second week of the Australian Summer, it snowed in parts of southern Australia just above the Melbourne area.
