Climategate 3.0: NYTimes Revkin — A true Climategate insider

When Phil Jones sends an e-mail complaining about a skeptic to only Michael Mann, Gavin Schmidt and the NYTimes Andrew Revkin — (and no other media person other than Revkin), that’s evidence of Revkin’s special status within the group.

the top level.
There is more detail below this and then there are the data below that.

There is an additional part that shows how many series from Ch 6 of AR4
used Yamal – most
didn’t! Also there is a sensitivity test of omitting it – which comes from
Supplementary Info with Osborn and Briffa (2006). As expected omitting it
makes very little
difference. To get to this follow the links from the above link.
McIntyre knows that the millennial temperature record is pretty robust,
otherwise he would
produce his own series. Similarly the instrumental temperature is even more
robust, which
he also knows.
