On Roy Spencer and Michael Mann - Continued 2
a) If the Michael Mann hockey-stick graph was such an accurate finding, then why pray tell did the IPCC omit the thing in their 2007 report???? Huh?............b) The satellite temperature readings of the last 35 years are almost identical to the readings of the radiosonde balloons (as opposed to the surface temperature readings which have been contaminated by things such as urbanization and which are quite frankly all over the map), and the vast majority of scientists now accept them as the most accurate data on the planet.............c) In Michael Mann's 1999 attempt at temperature reconstruction of the Northern Hemisphere, of the 12 data sets that the he ultimately utilized, 4 of them (#s 6,7,11, and 12) were actually....FROM THE SOUTHERN HEMISPHERE! The ass doesn't even know rudimentary geography, for Chris sakes!............d) And, again, Mr. Spencer has been awarded the NASA Exceptional Scientific Achievement Medal and the American Meteorological Society's Special Award for "developing a global precise record of the earth's temperature from operational polar orbiting satellites, fundamentally advancing our ability to monitor climate change." The dude clearly has a much more pedigreed background than Mann, who didn't even have his PhD when he first concocted this whole revisionist fantasy.
