Comments 1 to 3:

  1. With regard to BEST, it would seem that Judith Curry is being berated on her own blog for (as many of them seem to 'see' it) being had, deceived, taken for a ride, etc. by that beastly Muller chap. Plenty of accusations against him of lying and dishonesty - all being allowed to stand. Lots of belief that McIntyre is going to sort all of it out - he's auditing the BEST data as we speak, don't you know. And Curry is now referring to the BEST team as "they". Not "us". Can she get any more slippery ?

  2. Muller is getting an object lesson on the old saying about lying down with dogs. Even a brief skim of their sites should have been enough to demonstrate that Watts and (to a lesser extent) Curry are bad jokes, rather than 'heroes'. He either didn't look or didn't care... and now he's paying the price. He angered many in the scientific community by repeating denier fiction... and now he has alienated the denier community by repeating scientific facts.

  3. Logicman's upcoming piece should be interesting, although with the current (and growing) furore over at WUWT, he might be forced into a few quick re-writings in order to keep up with the gathering pace of the spittle flying over there. And Watts might want to keep an eye on some of his sycophants. Some of their guff is skirting toward libel.
