Analysis of The Marcott et al. Hockey Stick: "We’re deep into the GIGO range here"..."Bad proxies, bad scientists"
Another green-sharia alarmist study about global warming is found to be without much empirical merit - the Marcott et al. "hockey stick" study is proving to be essentially garbage in/out (GIGO)...it's so bad that experts in the field of statistics are "baffled" with some concluding that the study is a product of "Bad proxies, bad scientists" - Bozo, anyone?
A few days ago I published an article about the new alarmist hockey stick by Marcott et al. My take?
It was a statistical-blender 'smoothie,' not related in the least to real world empirical evidence; that the fabricated Marcott hockey stick blade was entirely bogus; and, that this study would likely be eviscerated by the experts.
As predicted, the experts are now concluding this study is not actual objective science. Read here for an expert evisceration of Shaun Marcott's global warming "science."
And, read Steve McIntyre's blog article, where even study author Marcott is now admitting that his bogus hockey stick blade is not "robust," and btw, which was fairly obvious to even most laypersons, including moi.
Unfortunately for Marcott et al., the experts now have the scent of significantly bogus science and they will not be letting go - this study will probably suffer the same fate as Michael Mann's 'Bozo' hockey stick travesty, which even the IPCC was finally forced to jettison.
And good. It serves Marcott right.
GIGO harms the science community and should not be tolerated. "Bad scientists" don't deserve to be published; instead, they deserve to be severely trashed.
