It's very simple.<quoted text>
Well thank you for proving my point that the press release was deceptive. You post a blog where the blogger states this:
“In my view, the astounding and disgusting reaction from deniers like Pielke Jr and others is because they cannot fault the science so they set out to misrepresent it, either deliberately or because they don't have the wit or will to digest it. The Marcott et al paper and the supplementary material is eloquently written and easy to read. The FAQ is perhaps even clearer so that most laypeople should understand it easily.”
And he states this:
“However, Anthony Watts (in his seventeenth protest article) and the Auditor demonstrate that even after all this time and all their protests they still haven't even read the paper, claiming that Marcott et al "finally concede" something that was STATED AT THE OUTSET IN THE PAPER ITSELF (page 1198).”
EXACTLY….So if it is in the paper as this blogger says, then WHY DOES THEIR PRESS RELEASE STATE THIS:
"But when you combine data from sites around the world, you can average out those regional anomalies and get a clear sense of the Earth's global temperature history." What that history shows, the researchers say, is that during the last 5,000 years, the Earth on average cooled about 1.3 degrees Fahrenheit--until the last 100 years, when it warmed about 1.3 degrees F.
According to the blogger on page 1198 of their paper and according to their FAQ, they cannot make any conclusions about the 20th century portion of their paleotemperature stack as it is not statistically robust, cannot be considered representative of global temperature changes, and therefore is not the basis of any of their conclusions.
That is what the Pielke paper was about; it was about the press release versus what is in the paper or FAQ. It’s no wonder this blogger didn’t want to link to Pielke’s site, because the blogger omits the fact that Pielke was talking about the press release and the media and the subsequent quotes from the scientists involved in the paper. Not once did any of these scientists who were interviewed tell us that the 20th century is not the basis of any of their conclusions even though IT WAS IN THEIR PAPER AND FAQ.
The paper is about holocene temperatures.
The press release is about how holocene temperatures compare to modern temperatures.
No deception there.
