... doofuses: Climategate and the American Physical Society.
Here, for anyone interested, is READ ME for Harry's work on the CRU TS2.1/3.0 datasets, 2006-2009.
Post bumped again, because a lively and, I think, intelligent conversation has been taking place (presuming we peons are allowed to weigh in). Anyaway, take a look at the comments.
Post bumped. By the way, my only take on this whole ClimateGate business is that it seems to offer prima facie evidence of a lack of transparency. And in many matters the mere appearance of impropriety can prove devastating. If there's really nothing there, it ought to very easy to clear up. As it is, the information is getting around, in whole and in part, leaving it open to all sorts of interpretation. If you act like you have something to hide, people are going to think you have something to hide. What I'm trying to get across is something a large segment of the scientific community doesn't seem to grasp - that it has a major public relations problem on its hands.
For a case in point, read this from the New York Times.
