anonymous blogger of notalotofpeopleknowthat
started blogging as early August 2011 but has since reached global interest with two features in arch denialist Christopher Booker’s Telegraph column in February 2014.
Climategate, the sequel: How we are STILL being tricked with flawed data on global warming
Something very odd has been going on with the temperature data relied on by the world’s scientists, writes Christopher Booker
The fiddling with temperature data is the biggest science scandal ever
New data shows that the “vanishing” of polar ice is not the result of runaway global warming
Paul has also posted on WUWT
No bio is supplied but judging from his blog he is British and has some training in statistics although not the vigorous kind where bias and cherry picking is avoided. James Delingpole however is able to flesh out Paul mentioning he is a retired accountant.
The wording used for blog titles:
Massive Tampering With Temperatures In South America
Temperature Adjustment Scandal Goes Viral
would indicate that he believes in a conspiracy by the scientific establishment.
Paul also dislikes wind turbines.
NASA being at the centre of the ‘scandal’ have a FAQ that deals with adjusting raw data.
A big question is whether or not Paul should be dismissed as a crank or if he has stumbled on a couple of anomalies. Clearly the language used by Paul in his blog would indicate he is in denial concerning AGW however there may be a case that temperature records in some locations need further investigation to explain anomalies. A peer reviewed paper even in Energy and Environment would at least open up his research to more qualified criticism.
