Days of our Life

McIntyre and McKitrick have posted the start of their response to Mann's preliminary response to their paper. They actually did it a while back, but I haven't been blogging so this is a bit late.

The more I think about it, the more that I am convinced that the following will be the results of this whole incident:

* M&M may (or may not) find minor errors in Mann's work and/or data archives, however, the effect of these errors will be sweet FA on the overall results

* The skeptics will hype their findings (whether or not they are accurate) beyond all rational levels

* Energy & Environment will carry on it's policy of publishing complete rubbish if it supports the editors ideology.

* It will take David Appell months to rid his site of all the trolls
