In which I am mean to an academic, again

Now, given that I have no inherent interest in AFL football, and have barely understood the saga of the Essendon drug supplements, it is possible that I am reading this wrong.  But as far as I can tell, and even though monty is too polite to say so openly over at his blog, I think it is fair to say that Sinclair Davidson appears to have been about as wrong on that matter as he was on the great stagflation warning of 2011, which I like to bring up every 6 to 12 months.   He also put much weight on the global warming "pause" as a good reason why people should think nothing should be done about AGW.   Given that even lukewarmer Steve MacIntyre (beloved "climate auditor" whose nitpicking role seems to be to convince people that it is really is correct to not see the wood for the trees) now has a post that shows this model to temperature graph:

you have to wonder when he'll admit a misreading of that matter, too.

People who understand more may correct me, at least on the Essendon matter, although truth be told, I'm not that interested.

Yes I have fun with the stagflation warning. It shows his informal model was completely wrong. As for the pause. It never occurred and he like Monkton never explain about autocorrelation which John Quiggin asked him about as well.!

He hides away at Catallaxy never having to ask answer any questions at all!

We shouldn't forget about Plain Packaging which the Kouk has hit him all around the ring in.

It would be rude to kick a man when he's down on his own blog.
