Here is Andy Revkin on the BEST results, 29 Jul 2012
BEST corroboration of temps is great (Rohde genius).
And here is Andy Revkin on the Skeie et al (low) climate sensitivity results today:
Troubling details on @forskningsradet promoting unreviewed study of limited warming from 2x CO2.
I queried this with him and he has kindly sent this response:
I'll be examining my coverage and others' for sure.
He has done a full article on the release of the Skeie results, and promises to follow up with a similar piece on Muller, so perhaps he is going to revise his opinions of BEST.
Should be interesting.
Andy Revkin has also pointed out this.
I agree with one point made by Anthony Watts, one of the most popular aggregators of all things doubtful on climate, in a letter he hurriedly sent to the committee and posted on his blog as the hearing began*:
Normally such scientific debate is conducted in peer reviewed literature, rather than rushed to the floor of the House before papers and projects are complete.
