"Scientists balk at ‘hottest year’ claims"

Not that I'm in the habit of trusting the mass media on heavily politicized stories, but this discussion still proved surprising and enlightening.

UPDATE: See also "The Most Dishonest Year on Record".

This is amusing:

His idea, detailed in a paper and further elaborated in a talk he is delivering at universities around the world, has sparked controversy among his colleagues, who see it as either tenuous or a potential breakthrough, or both.

Genius, or crazy, or both! But, fortunately, science exists to sort these things out.
