WUWT has more solid information than I can present here, even with the forbearance of MO enthusiasts and Yahoo itself. I see no need to suffer the outrageous claims, bullying and foolishness of goat-boy and his buddy squirrelmeister (aka rat-boy), who seem to have ingested Trenberth and now regurgitate him from time to time. Naturally, pilodialcyst is forgiven, for he knows not what he does.
Take a look and read the blog below the article. They have excellent commentary even from those who wonder and question without specific knowledge.
I will ignore all future bunk from squirrelmeister (vermowitz, rodentologist, et al.), al.gore#?, debka_file or his pediatric version on the topic of AGW, as they do nothing any astrologer wouldn't do. I will remind people of Watts Up With That occasionally, just to keep it fresh.
“What happened [after publication] demonstrates the sorry state to which climatology has sunk. Within hours a blog funded by the wealthy but mysterious ‘European Climate Foundation’ had gathered instant rent-a-quotes from half a dozen soi-disant climate ‘scientists’ savagely but anti-scientifically attacking our paper.”
Wonderful! "soi-disant"!! Verminorodentoprof will be so pleased. I wish I'd said it myself.
