HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAA!!!!!!! (gasp, breathing) HAHAHAHAHAHA AHAHAHAHAH AHAHAHAA!!!!!!!
This is a repost of Steve McIntyre’s Climate Audit post…..
Unreported by CRU is that they’ve resiled from the Yamal superstick of Briffa 2000 and Briffa et al 2008 and now advocate a Yamal chronology, the modern portion of which is remarkably similar to the calculations in my posts of September 2009 here and May 2012 here, both of which were reviled by Real Climate at the time.
In today’s post, I’ll demonstrate the degree to which the new Briffa version has departed from the superstick of Briffa 2000 and Briffa et al 2008 and the surprising degree to which it approaches versions shown at CA.
First here is a comparison from CA in Sep 2009 here of the Briffa 2008 superstick to a version that simply incorporated Schweingruber’s Khadyta River data, applying the method used by Briffa for Taimyr in Briffa et al 2008. Real Climate screeched in fury against this comparison.
Okay, I won’t show all the graphs Steve Mc does. But, for newbees in the climate wars, this has been an ongoing battle for years. And, I won’t bother with the details and specifics of this years long spat. But, the long and short of it all is that Steve Mac has been telling them that they’re doing it wrong!!!
He even showed them where and how they were wrong. And, showed them pictures. Each time he did it was met with howls of protest, indignations, gnashing of the teeth, with scorn and derision.
Our friend Omn, Maurizio Morabito (omnologos) managed to dig up this quote….
The irony is of course that the demonstration that a regional reconstruction is valid takes effort, and needs to be properly documented. That requires a paper in the technical literature and the only way for Briffa et al to now defend themselves against McIntyre’s accusations is to publish that paper (which one can guarantee will have different results to what McIntyre has thrown together).

You can read it from the source here.
So, how did Mac do? Now that the lunatics have quietly and tacitly admitted Mac was correct?
This is how Briffa and gang were represent the chronology…..
Looks like vindication to me for one fellow. Looks like there are several other fellows who need to do a little less talking and writing and start paying attention to people who know wtf they’re talking about. Maybe even go back and start taking notes.
Again, Steve Mac suffered a lot of mouthing for being right. For years.
Folks should pop over and congratulate him.
How many times do the nutters have to be shown that they’re wrong before people stop believing their dumb asses.
