More ClimateGate Discrepancies

Once again, new media does the job that old media is supposed to do.  A science blogger poured through volumes of temperature data released by Great Britain’s national weather service, and found a large number of discrepancies.  Of course, “the errors did not alter the bigger picture on climate change,” according to the news report, but they are yet one additional piece adding to the continually unfolding ClimateGate scandal.

It’s absolutely amazing how often divination figures in AGW predictions of the future.

There’s aeromancy or acromancy (divination by examining what the air does to certain things).

There’s arithmancy (divination by numbers). Also botanomancy (divination by herbs), hydromancy (divination by examining what certain things do in water), kapnomancy (looking at smoke), and ornithomancy or orniscopy (interpreting the flights of birds).

All of these ’scrying’ mechanisms can be found at work in the IPCC reports. Someone needs to add ‘dendromancy’ (divination by tree rings), though.

Likely, there’s quite a bit of oinomancy (divination by wine), and gyromancy (divination by walking around a circle of letters until dizzy and one falls down on the letters or in the direction to take).
