I’m not sure what this has to do with climate, but I believe deep climate was the original discoverer of the problem. Now it appears that Bradly is demanding an investigation. From Eli Rabbit’s post regarding the Wegman report:
“Clearly, text was just lifted verbatim from my book and placed in the (Wegman) report,” says Bradley, who is also one of the authors of the 1999 Nature study. In response to earlier concerns raised by the Deep Climate website, Bradley says he wrote a letter in April to GMU, noting the possibility of plagiarism and demanding an investigation of both the 2006 report and a subsequent, federally-funded study published by some of Wegman’s students. “Talk about irony. It just seems surreal (that) these authors could criticize my work when they are lifting my words.”
I suppose that if they find problems in the origin of a portion of the Wegman report (not the correctness), we can go over all the reasons why short centered PCA makes no sense again. Naw, that’s old news.
