Surface Stations Project Hits Paydirt
Posted by Jeff Condon on July 30, 2012
It seems as always, I don’t have much time. I have been waiting for this to break for a long time now, holding my tongue through a lot of critique from the usual advocate trolls. This extraordinary moment in climate science is FAR to important not to call attention to and I will absolutely be writing an article putting the event in perspective tonight. In my opinion this is a true scientific moment. Anthony’s surface station project, which was widely touted as a bust only a year ago, has now struck at the heart of modeled and measured surface temperatures. The implications of this project are widespread to say the least, the criticism from the advocate climate scientists will be severe.
Today though, we need to congratulate the surfacestations team effort led by a meteorologist Anthony Watts, and the monumental effort put into the project. Consider the guts it takes to publish initially weak results followed by the fortitude to go back and discover what was wrong with the theory and republish. As these results are verified, and I am certain they will be, an entire field of consensus has a lot of brand new work to do.
Climate science has a lesson to learn from this….
More to come tonight.
