Faulty sources? Let's assume for a moment that all these sources are
faulty, are these the only sources for global temperature data? Of
course not. Finding fault with some of these data sources ignores the
process that is used to correct these data for biases and trends not
related to climate.

The 'data' you quoted shows many more confusions and misleading
arguments, such as that global warming ended in 1998 and other non
sequiturs.

Much ado about nothing indeed. McIntyre embarrassed himself with
making much of a small and minor adjustment to the data. Global
warming deniers, unfamiliar with the science involved, jumped on board
decrying foul and scandal. And who should be embarrassed?

Tim Lambert, who already exposed McIntyre's minor adjustments, now
continues to show the scientific vacuity of global warming deniers

For instance NASA reported

<quote>While temperatures in the United States were the warmest in at
least 40 years, final figures aren't complete, NASA said. But, the
agency added, it is clear that 1998 did not match the record warmth of
1934, which occurred during the Dust Bowl era.</quote>

Ouch.... Lambert is a force to be reckoned with
