  1. Hi Jeff,

    I am delighted to see cracks in the wall of consensus dogma.

    May the entire wall crumble soon.

    With kind regards,
    Oliver K. Manuel

    Great! Hopefully, now, the MSM will acknowledge the ‘wall-breaker’… 😉

    If they place the cover on page 2099, we might get it.

    This has been discussed. dissected and defended so thoroughly in advance of publication, I’d assumed it was already out there – congratulations anyway/

    Do the numerous rebuttals to objections that have played out across the blogosphere form part of any official supplementary information now?

    Bravo. Well deserved.

    Well done to all involved, it’s been a hard slog for you all(hope you got some nice graphics in).

    ps. what does – (Please note that this version may not be final.) mean?

    Great job! Really good to see you guys made it through the gauntlet of peer-review. Congratulations.

    I think you have received enough (deserved) accolades, so I will add no more. But are Ryan O et al finished? Who will enter the breach to refute the next nonsensical paper? The thing about climate science that appalls so many is the lack of rigor.

    That a technically weak and obviously flawed paper like Steig et al makes it to the cover of Nature remains terribly troubling. Where were the rigorous climate scientist who should have been shouting down Steig et al as soon as it was published? Where were the indignant letters to Nature? (Worse, how the hell did it get past review and published in Nature the first place?)

    You guys did indeed step up to the plate; you talked the talk and you walked the walk. But who else has the time, energy, inclination, and ability to do the same again? I fear defeat of the rational via a thousand small cuts made by the irrational.

    Congratulations to you, Ryan and the other authors, Jeff. After all the struggles you went through, this is a good outcome.

    Congratulations, bet it’s too late to be included in the next IPCC beanfeast! (& of course, it’s been debunked by Real Climate & Skeptical Science! 😉 )
