Anthony Watts granted Steve McIntyre the opportunity to further explicate the meaning of the rather small change by GISS that his discovery of Hansen's error necessitated. (Watermelons have knocked McIntyre's site off line for the non.) It's an enjoyable read, especially after having waded through numerous comments by warmermongers deprecating the importance of the discovery, mainly by belittling both the minimal size of the adjustment necessitated by McIntyre's discovery and by rather fulsome statements concerning the "fact" that measurements in other countries provide ample trustworthy verification of increased warming.
Which is all well and good, except for the rather discomforting accusation that some of the claims regarding the homogeneity of the record in at least one major country are fabricated. McIntyre provides some insight as to the potential importance of the alledged fabrication.
If this keeps up the warmermongers are going to start sounding like the Black Knight insisting that "it's just a flesh wound".
The very extraordinary Anthony Dowell
