Himalayan Hijinks

Himalayan Hijinks“. Hijinks is right. Willis Eschenbach grabs some numbers from the rural Mukteshwar Ku surface station in the Himalayas and launches into the kind of rant about “data quality” that Anthony Watts loves. Naturally he manages to select some temperature readings that prove that there has been no warming.

Although Willis demonstrates that he is ignorant of the station history, he’s quite willing to charge that the Mukteshwar Ku temperature records have been badly adjusted. This kind of ill-defined random nit-picking accusation seems to serve as a comfort mechanism for denialists who feel their adrenaline levels are dropping too low.

The grudging money quote? “Does this invalidate the GISS global temperature record? No.”
