Is this type of fraud prosecutable?
WUWT is all over this....
Just found this item and posted it on this thread:
On reading the comments below the original article and also the discussion here by a guy who tried to recreate Marcott's results, it sounds like neither the original data nor Marcott's revised data can be trusted. Those big upward and downward spikes near 2000 could be artifacts.
As for prosecutable fraud, IANAL but I think we will have to settle for Marcott's reputation taking a hit.
