Yamal no more

Steve McIntyre has released a sudden flurry of blog posts on the subject of the Briffa et al 2013 paper. Today's offering contains the eye-opening news that CRU have finally backtracked from the Yamal hockey stick of "most important tree in the world" fame. The new version of the series is no longer hockey stick shaped and the modern portions resemble closely the versions of Yamal posted at Climate Audit as long ago as 2009, for which McIntyre was resoundingly condemned by mainstream climatologists.

"The problem is you can't trust anything a climate scientist says nowadays..."

Sad but absolutely true.

"or they will simply fire him?" Eliza, who are they? Right after climate gate Briffa became the general director of CRU. Jones had to retreat and became the research director.
