In a Dec. 9 op-ed, former Alaska governor Sarah Palin argued that “The e-mails reveal that leading climate ‘experts’ . . . manipulated data to ‘hide the decline’ in global temperatures.”
Umm, Sarah, how does one ‘hide the decline’ in temperatures by using the more accurate thermometers?
‘Hide the decline’ refers to switching from using the tree-rings which started to become less accurate in the 1960’s because of high CO2 interfering with the way they grow. There was no ‘hide the decline’ in temperatures at all! That was a Fox News addition.
