It seems that everyone else is doing a great job of beating up the report. I am not sure that I will have to spend any time on it since everyone else is really challenging the science and the techniques in the report. The folks at RealClimate appear to be quiet on it though. I would be interested in their thoughts and if they will follow blindly or will they actually be critical of the parts that bear questioning?
This comes from Climate Depot
U.S. Government Scientist: ‘I disagree strongly with the hurricane-related conclusions of this report!’
and this was later in the post.
I saw the news story on this and looked up the report. I have a pretty good grasp of the hurricane and AGW issues. I have skimmed over the hurricane findings (by the way — I didn’t notice a single recognized hurricane climate expert in the list of authors) and they definitely ignore a large body of the published hurricane research. There are a number of hurricane climate experts (including myself) that would disagree strongly with the hurricane-related conclusions of this report!
I haven’t had a chance yet to dig into the hurricane information on the report. This is just interesting information to discuss.
