In case you’ve missed it, there’s a real one, and then there’s the GWPF’s comedy one. You can read the GWPF’s stuff at tempdatareview.org, though why you’d bother I don’t know. As Moyhu points out, the figure used on that page is badly misleading, and certainly unbefitting any serious review. Anyone with a clue would refuse to be associated with anything with that on its terms of reference; but then again, anyone with a clue would refuse to be associated with the GWPF anyway.
I really can’t see how this can possibly even be supposed to work. People have tried attacking the temperature records before, and its always a dismal failure. Think of BEST; think of the nutters in NZ; think of the children… oh, hold on. Anyway, the last thing the GWPF wants is an actual credible serious review of the biases. Or at least; the last thing they should want. Perhaps they’re so self-deluded they really think there is something there.
Which brings me back to: how do they think this will work? Do they seriously expect the various national meteorological services to make submissions to their tinpot panel? I rather doubt that will happen. All they’ll get will be a few like Moyhu, and a pile of nutjobs.
