Climategate Documents Confirm Wegman’s Hypothesis

Lost in the recent controversy over Said et al 2008 is that the Climategate documents provided conclusive evidence of the hypothesis originally advanced in the Wegman Report about paleoclimate peer review – that members of the Mann “clique” had been “reviewing other members of the same clique”. In today’s post, I’ll examine the origin of […]

The Wegman and North Reports for Newbies

In recent discussion of the Weblog 2007 Awards, several commenters at other blogs have argued that our criticisms of the Mannian parlor tricks have been “thoroughly refuted and discarded by climatologists, published in a credible journal”; that “other professionals in the field who also have “looked in great detail at the problem at hand” and […]

Wegman's replies to Stupak

I know this is well after the event, but Dr Wegman’s extensive and detailed responses to Rep Stupak‘s written questions are interesting reading. I’m not aware that Steve linked to this document before. Beware though: the file is 10MB in size, so I’d recommend a right click followed by “Save Target as” – otherwise your […]

Curry on the Wegman Reports

Here are Judith Curry’s Comments on the Wegman Report. I appreciate these sorts of contributions and am obviously relying on such contributions (Willis, bender, etc.) more and more.

Whitfield SubCommittee: Edward Wegman Testimony

Wegman goes through his conclusions in the report. Highlights: “The decentering error preferentially produces Hockey Sticks” ” Decentering has a big effect on reconstruction” ” With proper centering, the Hockey Stick shape disappears” “Dr Mann has unusually large reach with the other 43 authors” “Peer review is not as independent as would normally be the […]

Wegman report release

Update (Steve): I’ve read the Wegman Report and it’s obviously very gratifying. I won’t be able to provide a review for about a week as we’ve got a family reunion this week-end with two of my sisters and their families arriving from Colorado and B.C. , plus I’ve got to do some preparation for next […]

Shukla’s Gold

Roger Pielke Jr recently made the remarkable discovery that, in addition to his university salary from George Mason University (reported by Pielke as $250,000), Jagadish Shukla, the leader of the #RICO20, together with his wife, had received a further $500,000 more in 2014 alone from federal climate grants funnelled through a Shukla-controlled “non-profit” (Institute for Global Environment and Security, […]

How Weaver Ignored Corcoran’s Segue

Four of the incidents in J Burke’s background chronology in Weaver v National Post (the January 27, 2005, February 15, 2005, August 2006 and February 27, 2008 incidents) relate, either in whole or in part, to a dispute between Weaver and National Post on whether Weaver had dismissed our research as “rubbish” or “balderdash” or a like […]

Oral Argument 1: Context

I have an audio copy of the oral argument in Mann v Steyn, which I’ve posted up (see link at the end of this post). One of things often under-estimated by those readers (especially at WUWT) who are bloodthirsty for litigation as a means of settling scores is that it’s not easy for litigation lawyers to […]
