Faking it

From the emails

It just happens that, in your version, I 'faked up' column 5 as the difference between column 6 and the sum of columns 2, 3 and 4. I did this simply to get the code working; but (as you now know) I never got around to fixing it up until now. In the latest version, column 6 is again equal to the sum of columns 2, 3, 4 and 5 because I scale columns 3, 4 and 5 to ensure that this is so. . . .
(3) Re HadCM2, again it is impossible to be consistent. What I said before is that the reason for adding these results is simply to make them readily available. I do *not* advocate using them in combination with any other model results.. . .

I wonder what the result of all this "faking" was?

Clearly you have taken his words completely and utterly out of context.

Everyone knows these big brains of science just use words without a thought for how they will be interpreted in the real world...because thats what the big brains of science do! :)

Evidently, the result of the 'faking'' is that he got his code working. That was the stated purpose. Nothing scandalous there.

From Harry's monologue it results clearly that he meant to say 'I fucked up column 5'. No evil intentions. Just Menschliches, Allzumenschliches.
