FRAUD – Again!!

More good work from Jo Nova.

Onya Jo!

She points out that this is how Global Warming was pounded into the conventional wisdom by a compliant media – thousands of spurious little “scientists say” tidbits which are NEVER balanced and NEVER corrected.

300,000 dollars and three years to produce a paper that lasted three weeks: Gergis

“The paper might have been scientifically invalid, but it was a box-office success.

The headlines were everywhere   “1000 years of climate data confirms Australia’s warming” said the press release from University of Melbourne.
It  was picked up by  The Guardian: “Australasia has hottest 60 years in a millennium, scientists find”;
The Age and  The Australian led with “Warming since 1950 ‘unprecedented’.
The story was on ABC 24  and ABC news where Gergis proclaimed:” there are no other warm periods in the last 1000 years that match the warming experienced in Australasia since 1950.”
It was all over the ABC including ABC Radio National, and they were “95% certain“!
On ABC AM, “the last five decades years in Australia have been the warmest. ”
Plus there were pages in Science Alert,  Campus Daily  Eco news,  The Conversation, Real Climate and Think Progress.

Blog review is where the real science gets tested

Skeptics have been looking through the paper, and three weeks after it was published a team at Climate Audit uncovered a problem so significant that the authors announced that this paper is “on hold”.
It has been withdrawn from the American Meteorological Society website.
Bishop Hill has probably the best summary of what this means, and how it unfolded…. “
