The Stalinist in me would describe him as a useful idiot. This is the point "One of the strongest voices criticising the study comes from the BEST team itself. Dr Judith Curry, head of the School of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences at the Georgia Institute of Technology, declined to be a co-author on the latest BEST study, and says on her blog she does not "see any justification in [BEST's] argument for" the group's statement that its warming data fits with manmade carbon dioxide. Curry's not alone: former climate scientist William Connolley claims BEST has done "none of the attribution work you'd expect"."

He has no reason to say they've proved that link, or even tested it. He's basically looking at trends and saying they look similar. That ain't science.

This discussion would really be more appropriate in the Paddock Club. It's an interesting and important topic and deserves to be discussed; just not in here. Thanks.

By posting it here I get to cull 90% of the rabid lunatic responses (I know - KC still pops his head up) while getting more responses from people whose opinions I have come to respect.
