Wegman scandal: where was the due diligence?
[Via Deltoid]

Deep Climate continues his examination of the Wegman report. It would seem that Wegman’s “reproduction” of McIntyre’s results amounted to nothing more than running McIntyre’s code without understanding what it did. And while Mann’s “short centring” method does tend to produce a hockey-stick McIntyre greatly exaggerated the extent that it does so.


Lots of background and investigation but one essential part – the denialists ran a simulation generating 10,000 graphs but then only used the top 1% that looked the way they wanted them to.

Makes me wonder what the other 99% actually looked like.
