    This is a lose-lose. Those who support AGW will point to it and say that it still shows warming, and we still have time to repent for our sins. Those who don't will say that since they relied on exaggerated data, it calls into question AGW in the first place..."fruit of the poisoned tree".

    Or some scientist will question their credentials, arguing that their degrees and research were both from the educational and intellectual equivalent of "Denny's".

    Part of the larger play, I guess...get everyone hooked on AGW, then bring out just enough to upset the apple cart, call for more research and confirm that...wait for it...we should be in a 10x greater panic than we were...

    Stop telling us the future Nostradamus, or at least put up a "Spoiler Alert"! :l

    Once the public is all lathered up by the panic, ya think the slop could get collected and sold as an anti warming elixir?

    I mean, seriously...

    North Korea
    Russia
    Hurricanes

    if it wasn't so close to duck season, I think I'd just be hoping for a giant meteor.

    Y'all miss the point of the article. It's purpose was to 1)provide cover for the Al Gore crowd who said doomsday was in 2017; 2) allow the scientists more time to keep feeding at the trough of government grants ; and 3) to tell us it's actually not too late to do something about it, because there is still time to save the world if only we give the government total control over our lives to stop this calamity.

    I guess you don't understand how science works. Unlike most people on this forum, when new information becomes available knowledge is gained and the science moves forward. That is assuming the new information is deemed valid by peer review and further study.

    Since I am technically a 'scientist' and was a professional in a field that dealt with climate for nearly 15years, I probably DO understand it, and how it REALLY works, way better than you'll ever know. I've seen 'scientists' manipulate temperature data intentionally, then lie about it, AND present a united front to support the lies. Fact.
