This is the point where the Usual Suspects™ get all huffy, and say that:
- Weather is not climate.
- It's not Global Warming, it's Climate Change. Err, Global Climate Disruption, or whatever the memo from Marketing said.
Err, Climate Change, or whatever you call it.
Fiddle with the data all you like; do your "gridding" and "homogenation" and "adjusting" to your heart's content. Use dodgy statistical methods in your "peer reviewed" papers. Keep refusing to disclose your data or computer code, even after Freedom Of Information Act requests. Go ahead and blame it all on the LOLcats. Keep using Greenpeace "scientists" to write the IPCC reports. Keep using a sample size of two in your "scientific" reports. Or one.
It won't keep snow from falling when you say it's ZOMG teh hottest evah!!!1!!eleventy!! Or the hottest day in America's history was in 1913.
Maybe this is why people think you fudge your work.
