The Wall Street Journal mentioned us editorially yesterday here . While it’s nice to be mentioned, they incorrectly say the following:
The Canadians found that the Medieval warm period had indeed occurred, suggesting that periods of warming and cooling were natural trends unrelated to the number of SUVs on the road.
Readers of this blog know that we made no such claim about the MWP. We have repeatedly made it clear that we offer no alternative reconstruction of past climate. We merely demonstrated many flaws in the data and methods of MBH and stated that MBH claims that their reconstruction demonstrated 20th century uniqueness with robustness and statistical skill were invalid – a different and more nuanced assertion than attributed to us by WSJ.
