Liars and Knucklehead Reviewers
Posted by Jeff Condon on February 13, 2011
When Steig went off the deep end the other day, I told people I wasn’t going to let it go. Not after all that time work and abuse we took in getting this paper done. He’s actually screaming that we are liars, and the reviewers that let our math pass are Knuckleheads. Let’s see if he has the grace to apologize!!!
His words are those of an enraged man who’s famous work is being made more famous by extended unique claims as to what is reality and the quality of the reviewers. In my opinion, there was only one reviewer who actively worked against a scientific analysis based on his preferred results. He made his recommendations to force us closer to S09 at every angle. At every angle he tried to push us to say we agreed with this or that of S09, never understanding or choosing to grasp that his results are random noise more than anything else. Peninsular warming smeared through 2.5 pc’s across the Antarctic, does not constitute data which you can accurately use for anything. NOTHING.But there was plenty of warming in it for the cover of Nature.
Anyway, Steve McIntyre has a post up which our group has reviewed lightly and I wholeheartedly agree with. I’m tired of the games at RC. I’m tired of them calling me, Steve or any of our group liars while hiding the truth and never apologizing for their own mistakes. Ever seen RC apologize? Know why?
You don’t need to hear my rants though, Steve’s post is long enough. Check it out here.
I wonder what the KNUCKLEHEADED REVIEWERS think of Steig’s skill set.
